We are all in this together and it will take a whole world to understand!
Mom’s Choice Recipient, Liz Kulp, as a young teen with Fetal Alcohol challenged the world to peer inside her life and brain. Through her own writings the reader is taken on a life changing journey that will impact their thinking about how to help and understand children with brain damage due to Fetal Alcohol.
“Mom, I want to write a book anout what it’s like to have FASD (fetal alcohol spectrum disorders) I think people need to know”
… and so began Liz’s and my journey in writing The Best I Can Be – Living with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Liz was right, it was a story that needed to be told. Fetal Alcohol Exposure is a leading cause of cognitive challenges and intellectual disability in the western world. It is estimated that one out of 10,000* children born each year in the United States as FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome with facial features) and one out of 100** have FASD (without facial features).
Research and experience has proven one label is not better or worse than the other. Tens of thousands of newborn US children each year will have to learn to cope with this disability. It is time to come out of denial – alcohol consumption during pregnancy is not safe.
Let Liz take you on our journey – it is a journey of hope, of dedication and of perseverance. Thank you Liz for your courage to share your story. The Best I Can Be Living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (Available at Amazon) by Liz Kulp and Jodee Kulp is a recipient of the prestigious Mom’s Choice Award for Best Young Contributing Author.
