You are part of a global movement
In September, people all across the UK hold events and share information about FASD.
9/9 is International FASD Day – it represents the importance of going alcohol-free for the 9 months of pregnancy
It’s a time to celebrate people with FASD.
We asked for your self portraits and they were awesome, just like you!
Some people wear red shoes on 9/9. The idea came from RJ, an adult with FASD in Canada, who decided way back in 2013 to wear RED SHOES to stand out and have some fun when starting conversations about FASD.
But don’t worry, you can wear what you want on 9/9.
But maybe take a moment that day and think about how hard you try and how you are learning about your FASD.
Be proud of who you are on 9/9 and every day!
