Final Episode of FASD Hope Podcast


Our hearts are heavy that Episode 163 is the final episode of FASD Hope from Natalie Vecchione, who says, “Thank you for listening to our small but mighty family podcast about FASD. We're certainly not experts and we're still on this journey, too.  It’s now time for us to focus even more on our family, navigate what lies ahead, and face uncertainty with faith and fortitude.”

FASD Hope has been an amazing resource for families and professionals navigating FASD, reaching far beyond North Carolina.  We at Proof Alliance NC want to thank Natalie and John for their amazing contribution to the FASD community and wish them well as they continue to navigate this ever changing path.

Tune-in to the final episode, here.
