If you have met me and my family some of you might not even realize what our precious "Miss Mew" has and has to deal with every day of her life. Choices that were made before she was born will impact her life every day. We are choosing to rise about it. We are choosing to deal with it and help her in any way she can so that she can be a productive member of society. FASD awareness day is coming on September 9th of every year is national FASD Awareness day. Please if you are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant do not drink. The risk is not worth it. Your child deserves so much more.
If you did drink while you were pregnant and you are seeing things in your child that could be FASD please admit what you have done and seek out the proper treatment for your child to give them a brighter future to give them a chance.
Much Love! Pin It
