MEET SKYE – Skye, is 10 years old. Presently, he participates in martial arts (black belt), equine therapy, tennis and swimming lessons, and neurobehavioral based therapy. In this picture, he is getting ready to break a board at testing. He just entered the black belt level this past June. He will test again on the black belt level to move up in the black belt categories. His best friend and dog, Roxy, helps him feel safe and loved.
MY STORY – Skye was fostered first and then adopted at 10 months old and diagnosed with an FASD at about 4 years old. Since then, he has been consistently involved in therapies and services to help with his health issues. All of these help with his struggles.
STRENGTHS – is truly a warrior and superhero. His roller coaster days are survived with his ”no quit” approach.
STRUGGLES – Skye needs an external brain, mostly his mom, to help him with oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), ADHD, anxiety, impulse control, memory loss, a clinical sleep disorder, and other health issues.
WISH – That mothers do not drink at all during pregnancy so no more children are born with an FASD.
