We’re excited to share a video interview from fasdforever.com. It’s a conversation between Jeff Noble and R.J. Formanek titled “Flying with Fetal Alcohol.” The video appeared originally at fasdforever.com. It’s such an amazing of hope that we wanted to include it here in our online directory. We thank Jeff and R.J. for sharing it with us.

Jeff is a helper, a leader and an innovator. His focus is FASD, but his expertise is building community through social media. Using an interactive, yet personal approach, Jeff delivers relevant, useful and need-to-know information to help and support front line workers, educators and caregivers of those living with FASD.

R.J. is living proof that people living with FASD DO have a future! Here’s Jeff introduction to the conversation:

47 years, that’s how long it took until R.J. Formanek officially received his diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. Things haven’t always been smooth for R.J. I can only imagine what it must have been like living with organic brain damage and not even knowing it.

Despite all the struggles that go along with having a little known, invisible physical disability, R.J. is proof that with the right team and the right environment you can be a successful adult living with a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder… and by all accounts R.J. is certainly that. I connected with R.J. via Skype. Check out the interview below.

I told you this guy is a pretty cool cat, right? Keep up the great work R.J.
I can’t wait to see what you do next! If you would like to join the group Flying with Broken Wings or Red Shoes Rock FASD, you can do so by clicking the link below:

Thank you so FLIPPIN’ MUCH!
