FASD Memoirs, by Barbara Studham

FASD Memoirs, by Barbara Studham

For over twenty years Barbara Studham has parented grandchildren with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and written two memoirs on her experiences during that time. Two Decades of Diapers describes her early childhood, her daughter’s teen pregnancy, and the self-doubt and predicaments she faced during her grandchildren’s toddler and early school years. Her second memoir titled Fetal Alcohol Syndrome; The Teen Years takes the reader on Barbara’s emotional journey through the critical times of her grandchildren’s FASD teenage years.

Both memoirs are available from AMAZON
