Critical Issues Facing Special Needs and At-Risk Children and Youth: 7th Annual Professional Seminar Series. Sponsored by: The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, Suicide Prevention Program in partnership with the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, Supreme Court of Georgia Committee on Justice for Children, and the Marcus Institute

Donnie:
Thank you so much, although all the presentations were good, yours was truly excellent.  In years of listening to lectures, I have to say that you did perhaps the best job I have heard on translating your son's label into what it means in day to day life.  Your explanation of his trouble with grasping the passage of time and how that affects him was just what many of those people needed to hear in order to understand in a concrete way how life looks to the kids they work with.

Although I know that we can't ever understand God's plan, after hearing you speak, I bet I know why Iyal was meant to be part of your family.

Thank you so much for all your work in setting up the day's presentation on FAS I understand from the University of Georgia people that the reviews were very favorable.  I am looking forward to reading your daughter's book and I will be happy to review it but I have to wait in line for my daughter who is 9 to finish it.  Would you like her review as well?

Thanks again for all you help and your excellent presentation.

Donnie, I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your presentation yesterday.  You and Chancer did a great job making FASD “real” for the audience.  You are an awesome advocate and change agent for FASD.  Thanks.
