In 1999, at age twelve, Liz was diagnosed with FAE - permanent neurological brain damage due to prenatal exposure to alcohol. For her family, it was the answer to many unanswered questions regarding her behavior and abilities. For Liz, it was an opportunity to began to learn to cope with her disability instead of believing she was "bad."
Liz takes you on her journey as a young teen through the murk and mire of misunderstandings and confusion. Through the distortions and discombobulation of living with a miswired brain and a compromised body in a covering of flesh that looks like nothing is wrong.From the Author:
Liz is my hero.
As Liz began to understand what Fetal Alcohol meant in her life, she considered the lives of others. "Let's make a difference, mom. Let's tell people and let them know about FAS/FAE so it stops happening to other kids." And so, we begin a new journey - hand-in-hand - opening dark places and letting in light. We cut away bramble and began to build pathways. As a family, we perservered to help Liz stive to become "The Best She Can Be!"
May the words that Liz allowed to flow from her heart, open your heart to a deeper understanding of the millions of prenatally exposed persons around the world.
