I've lived with my foster child for over 4 years and was relieved when I heard about FAS - I knew that was it! But yesterday I was feeling I'd let him down after seeing a paediatrician, who said 'it's not FAS because he's only got 1 of the facial features'. He said it might be ADHD and we could start tests. I tried to state my case - his mum has even admitted drinking during pregnancy, but no. I came home disappointed, didn't know what to do and looked again for more information. I found this site and am heartened to read others in similar situations. This has reassured me to keep trying for a diagnosis and to try and help make more people aware of the condition.
