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

A friend alerted me to this article on a boy with FAS and his service dog. I have thought of this before, and probably should look into it. If the dog came trained, we might be able to do it. Our experiment with a puppy a few years ago did not work with Ms. Akila. The challenge would be if we could get one that was a non-shedding one- or the kind that shed as little as possible. Both of my boys are allergic to cats and dogs and have asthma.
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.
