Thank you, and to everyone who comes across this, it's really more serious than you think. The child will also have developmental problems, speech and the whole 9. PLEASE DON'T DRINK OR DO DRUGS WHILE YOUR PREGGOS!!!!

I don't know much about the syndrome but just wanted to thank all the folks who take the time to foster children..really a great thing you do.

Very important. I'd like to thank you for bringing up this disorder and educating people about it. It just goes to show that being a responsible parent begins at the moment of conception. Once you decide to engage in acts that may produce a child you have bought into the responsibility of adulthood.

Your post has indeed a great cause.
