Alan has a cleft palate and hydrocephalus, as well as mild mental retardation. This little boy does not have a mustache, the children were eating a snack just before their pictures were taken 🙂 However, he does show strong facial features of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and the cleft palate and hydrocehalus are common conditions associated with this syndrome. Be sure to research FAS thoroughly so you are prepared for the challenges that come with this special need.
