Education is Power – FASD Success Stories Series (5th Story)
Our son is 7 1/2 years old. He has been part of our family since he was six weeks old and became a permanent part of our family when he was 5 on National Adoption Day. We have known that his bio mother drank a lot during her pregnancy. It wasn’t until almost the end of first grade did we realize the impact this has on a child. We are now involved in a study here in Rochester, NY, belong to a local support group, Jeff’s website and a private support group on Facebook. We are also starting therapy.
Being more educated, we are able to help our son be successful in school. Can’t believe what a difference life is with all of the support, knowledge and experience that we have received. Last big support that we have received is from Jeff – with his daily posts on Facebook and providing information when requested to give to the school. We still have a long way to go, but being educated is making all of the difference.
We are so blessed for all of those who help and support our family.
