Jennifer dropped to her knees, trying to make sense of the doctor's diagnosis: 'Your daughter has fetal alcohol syndrome.' Her adopted daughter, Ashley, the blond, blue-eyed angel she longed and prayed for since she was a teenager, would forever be affected by her birthmother's decision to drink during pregnancy. Ashley would suffer all her life from mental and physical birth defects that were completely preventable, and she would have less than a 10 percent chance of ever being able to live on her own. In Forfeiting All Sanity: A Mother's Story of Raising a Child with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Jennifer Poss Taylor shares her family's experience with FAS and the perseverance, sense of humor, and love that daily overcome its effects. Taylor's honesty and personal insight will capture readers as she describes the daily challenges of raising a child with special needs. Every parent will be touched by this story. Finally, a book that explains this unfortunately-common disability to others Taylor does an excellent job of providing exact information from a parent's perspective that allows her to see the potential in a child, while explaining why a child with FASD may have severe difficulties in life. -Denese Thetford, FASD Coalition, Texas state office of TOPDD advisory board
