Unfortunately Sara Graefe's book has become a bestseller--because so many parents don't know where to find help for raising children with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. There is currently no laboratory test that can confirm whether or not a child has FAS. Institutions in British Columbia that respond specifically to children and families affected by Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, such as Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children in Vancouver and the Asante Centre in Maple Ridge, can't possibly reach every family that needs assistance. Therefore Sara Graefe first wrote Parenting Children Affected by Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: A Guide for Daily Living in 1994. A second bilingual edition in 1998, also sponsored and published by the Society of Special Needs Adoptive Parents (SNAP), sold more than 40,000 copies across Canada and abroad. Graefe's third edition entitled Living With FASD: A Guide for Parents (Vancouver: Groundwork Press, 2004) marks the 15th anniversary of a landmark Fetal Alcohol Syndrome conference that was held in Vancouver and the 30th anniversary of the first North American research article that made the connection between maternal drinking during pregnancy.
