Episode #17 - Aubrey Page: Life in the Military and as an FASD Caregiver

As a treatment-level foster parent in Ohio for 3 years, Aubrey noticed many of her kids had similar symptoms that were not trauma based.  After one of her children was diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, her eyes were opened to the prevalence of this disability. 

 

This led her on a path to discover everything she could about Prenatal Alcohol Exposure through reading, research and seminars. She now advocates, trains and mentors others, as well as consulting with governments in her State to get more resources for FASD. All this while balancing military careers for both her husband and herself. 

 

In this podcast we discuss:

 

·         How and why she became so involved in the world of FASD

·         Tips and strategies she uses to help her children meet with success

·         The balance and partnership she has with her husband Nelson 

·         Which is easier: military deployment or parenting children with FASD

·         Ideas on how to make it through this pandemic as a family and her self-care strategy

 
Aubrey also discusses her thoughts on preparing our kids for their future: “They should all be contributing to society because they’re capable and they want to. So, how can we put them in a position to do this?”

 

I think you will agree Aubrey has achieved so much in a few short years and is an inspiration to many with her straightforward approach to making lives better not only for herself and her family, but others.
