The SPIRIT of FASD

This was written by a fellow FASDer: R.J. Formanek, an absolutely creative writer. I asked him if I could post this in my blog. I am so excited that he said yes. He has a site on Facebook called, Flying with Broken Wings…a site for those with FASD and their caregivers/external brains, etc.

This is what he wrote…

I just wanted to say that a whole lot of people focus on the negative side of FASD, and while that is the over all concern, please don’t forget that FASD is so much more than just the bad stuff.


We are your dreamers, your musicians and poets, we write the stories that touch your very soul, we are the ones that come up with the miracle cure when nobody else can, because we are the original “out of the box” thinkers!
Look at our photos…there truly IS so much more than meets the eye!


Who else do you know that can get total joy from the first rays of sun, or a warm gentle rain, the sound of a lone loon at dusk or just the fun of playing in a puddle after that warm gentle rain? We are comedians and magicians, tricksters of the first degree, beware of the twinkle in our eyes…it means we are playing! We love to make those around us happy! We love to share.


So, that’s my little thought for the day…the sun is out, the sky is blue and dammit! I’m gonna go find me a puddle and a chunk of wood, and play boats!
…you all have a great day now!

  1. Inspirational words, bro… it's important to look at the sunny side!

  2. Your site makes me so happy and this guest post in particular. I can see that happy little prankster in my 5 year old. I will do what ever it takes to keep the world form squashing his spirit just because he is not neurotypical. i want him to have the same sunny personality and mischievous sparkle at 50 that he does at 5!! Thank you for sharing!

  3. I the other day I heard a bird in the silence and I thought it was singing to me-love the part of being expressive

Thank you for your contribution to LIVING with FASD...and Autism
