MEET VIVIAN – Vivian is 16 years old and adopted. She has finished middle school. Someday I hope to become a kindergarten teacher. I have a strong social nature, but sometimes I feel different from others. My concentration is often bad and I have problems with math. She was diagnosed in 2013. I wish all girls knew what happens when you drink alcohol when you are pregnant.
