One of our PCA's is doing a class project on FASD with a friend of hers, they are both Family Social Science majors at the U of MN. They came over last night to interview me about FASD, and the family impact of it. It is suppose to be a 5 minute video they need to make.
Poor women. They were here for 2 hours listening to me babble about FASD. They didn't video all of it, just a short period. But once you get me going, it is hard to shut me up!
Whenever I encounter young people in college who are majoring in human service fields, education, or medical areas, I just can't keep my mouth shut! Since basically none of the college programs have much info on FASD, I have a personal agenda to get as many people as I can to go through their college program with their own personal FASD focus.
And these two young women are fabulous, so say a little prayer. I am trying to get some therapists/counselors who would be specific to FASD, and have an interest, compassion and intentional outreach to families like mine. I still contend that if someone went through a counseling degree program of some sort, and really learned about FASD through choosing it as a focus on papers, speeches, videos, etc., did some PCAing for children with FASD, they would be amazing resources and their schedules would be jam packed!
