Minnesota is the first state to require foster parents learn about fetal alcohol disorders

 


For years, Mary Ann Holman-Turner was puzzled by the erratic behavior of her foster child Emmanuel, whom she nicknames "Man-man."

Without apparent reason, he would hurl objects, slam doors and lie awake most of the night. In preschool, he had trouble sitting still and was unable to color inside the lines. Doctors wrongly diagnosed him with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and prescribed him the stimulant Adderall to help him concentrate.
