Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder 101

Education & Support

The Blog

~Welcome to my Blog~

The purpose for this blog is to encourage and help families and caretakers who have someone in their lives effected by FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectum Disorder) and to help educate the population about the damages that alcohol can have on an unborn baby.  What I will share here are things that have helped my family.  If you find something that has worked for you, please tell me about it, I am always eager to learn. ~ Nora Hofmans
