Robbie knew her purpose at 19 years old when she saw 9 year old girls prostituting themselves on the streets of Edmonton, AB. Today she is the adopted mother of 4 kids who struggle with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). Saying her life has been challenging is an understatement to say the least. But Robbie found a way. From battling a closed minded school system, to watching her 14 year old daughter choose the streets over a loving home, Robbie braved the war despite the explosions and dedicated her life to finding a better way. And she’s winning. She went from sneaking into FASD conferences to speaking at them. She built an army of support, and she’s just getting started. The gift of desperation. Just like that.
Join us this week as we #takeofftheblinders around addiction and FASD in the family unit. We’ll talk about how she found her way, and how she is helping others with her inspirational story and her engaging podcast; FASD Family Life Podcast https://open.spotify.com/show/0JMRtMU…… We’re building bridges to success and getting honest this week right here, on Hard Knox Talks.
