About Me

I am a fifty year old homeschooling mom to three by birth, two by marriage and four, by adoption. My kids have had the normal alphabet soup of diagnosis due to trauma and neglect with a little prenatal exposure to alcohol and drugs thrown in. My passion is kids, followed by reading and what ever my obsession of the month is. I depend on my husband for my sanity. I depend on the Holy Spirit for wisdom and my absolute faith in Jesus Christ for forgiveness of my many sins. My hope is not in this world but in the one to come. My absolute joy comes from my grandchildren.

    Hello! From one 40 something mom to more that the usual number with more than the usual diagnosis to another. (man I write like a fourth grader also today!) A friend linked me over to your blog and I am happy that she did – it gets a little lonely on this journey through FAS sometimes.

    I am a junior high school student at Nanuet senior hgih school in Nanuet. For my psychology class i have to do a project on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. I would appreciate any facts details or any information on FAS. Maybe if you have ever met a child or parent that has dealt first hand with the brain damage. Or even any stories of dealing with children with FAS

    Hello. A friend passed on your blog information on Sonlight. I had posted that we are considering adopting a third child on the fasd spectrum. We have 3 adult bio kids, and 2 adopted, age 8 and 12. We’ve heard it recommended that one adult per fasd child is a good ratio and have been reconsidering whether to adopt another. Our 12 yr. son is very challenging and may or may not last in our home through his teen years. Our 8 yr. daughter is delightful (with some challenges) and would love a younger sister. We thought it would be good for her to have a sister to bond with and grow up with. I understand you have experience (!) and would love any thoughts you care to share on adoption, or raising kids with fasd in general.

    L, I remember you from the SL forums. I was sweetstitches there. We are at a bad place, and I could really use to talk to someone who’s been there/done that so to speak. I can see you haven’t posted here in a couple of years, but I’m going to pray you see this and we can get in touch.
