I am a mom who is always on the brink of losing her mind. I am a psycho mom.

My husband is blogging!
My husband, Michael, has started a blog. It has a couple of different focuses, but the tab that is called "More precious than Gold" is the one that will focus on parenting a child with FASD. I haven't found too many blogs by the dads of these precious kids, so I hope that you will check it out- I can't wait to read it each week!
My name is Barb and I am a teenager at heart who is married to Michael, an Accountant. We have 4 adopted children, Akila-12, Imani-11, Hezekiah-10 and Zeke-9. I am a youth worker by profession but currently staying home attempting to manage our household. My hope for this blog is that it will help me to avoid cleaning my house (I actually don't need help with avoiding housework) and give me some serenity (I do need help with this). My oldest child, Akila, has Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and that is what I will focus on in this blog.
Here are a few books that I found helpful on FASD. I also put the link for the lockbox that we have liked the most for locking stuff up. We have one with meds in it, one with knives and scissors. I like that it is electronic and I don't have to use a key. Each of my kids has their own as well.
