#7 Meet Angie – 90 Real People Real Lives. #FASD

Day 7 of International Red Shoes Rock Virtual Relay Race!

Hey Angie – we’re already one week through of our 90 days and I heard you like to sing and dance. So do I – so lets sing and dance and tell everyone about FASD all around the world. I am glad you are running with me today… Let’s go make some noise.

Meet Angie – Angie loves to sing and dance. She loves to sew and design clothes and some day hopes to be a clothing designer for girls. She loves to draw and loves her social skills group where her friends are.  She wants people to understand that when they speak very fast she needs time to understand what they are saying. Someday she hopes to marry and have a family.

My Story –  Full term, born to parents who both struggled with substance abuse and mental illness.  Removed at birth and placed into the system.  Placed with aunt who became her forever home where her brother came before her.

Strengths –  She loves to sing and dance.  She loves to sew and wants someday to design clothes for girls.  She loves to draw and loves her social skills group where her friends are.  She loves clothes and make-up and jewelry and loves to travel to the beach.

Struggles –  She has Alcohol Nuero-developmental disorder.  She has a mood disorder and has speech difficulties and fits under the Autism Umbrella.  She needs time to process what you say to her and is very much a visual learner.  She like her brother is a very concrete learner and doesn’t understand abstract.

Wish –  That she will grow up and be a famous singer.  She wants people to understand that they speak very fast and she needs time to understand what they are saying.  She wants to be a famous clothes designer.  She wants someday to be married and have a family of her own.
