BOY, born November 9, 2006

Nicholas is officially diagnosed with FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome).  His delay is considered significant. He needs a loving family to help him achieve all he can be.  He does not appear to have any additional medical complications from his FAS. This picture makes him seem to have vision problems, but I think it’s just a bad picture.

If you are unfamiliar with FAS, please spend some time researching this condition.  Just as with Down syndrome, FAS and FAE have a wide variation of effects on each child, both medically, physically, and cognitively.  This is typically dependent on how long during the pregnancy the mother consumed alcohol, and of course, how much.  There is no way to know this ahead of time.
