Manage episode 348372386 series 3399579
Lindsey shares her story of seeing signs of neurological and developmental differences in her adopted twin boys from a young age, which led to their diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). Lindsey shares her experience of acceptance, adaptation, and tools she has learned as we discuss the challenges of parenting children with neurological disabilities. She talks about extending grace to ourselves as parents and understanding to others as these conditions are much more prominent than most of us realize.
