Memoir: Two Decades of Diapers
Are you an individual with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, or a caregiver/support worker to an individual with FAS? Are you considering raising or fostering a child with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome? Or, are you a reader simply interested in the effects of mental illness. If so, then for these, and many other reasons, Two Decades of Diapers is essential reading. During author, Barbara Studham’s, twenty years of single-handedly raising four grandchildren with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, the temptation to run from this often uncontrollable mental illness and all the struggles it brought into her world, was significant. Despite her grandchildren’s strengths, their Fetal Alcohol Syndrome caused severe behavioral issues, eventually overwhelming her parenting abilities resulting in a breakdown of the family unit she had fought so hard to maintain. Offering an insight into the challenges of FAS, Two Decades of Diapers is a down-to earth, no holds barred reference to the struggles associated with mental illness. In her memoir, Barbara describes the challenges her adopted daughter with FAS endured, her teen pregnancy, how Barbara became a grandmother raising grandchildren, and the crises, shattered dreams, and strength and love they share.
