Her book also offers guidance to parents who have children with FASD. By the time Bonnies daughter Colette hit first grade, her parents were coping with her frequent stealing and lying, and the necessity of special education.

At fourteen, she discovered drugs and sex- by eighteen, she was a crack addict living on the streets. After many frustrating years consulting numerous therapists, a TV news story gave Bonnie the answer she was looking for — and sent her on a quest for a diagnosis and help for Colette. Damaged Angels can aid and comfort all those affected by FASD — the most common cause of intellectual impairments in most industrialized nations — and reduce the number of babies born with this disorder in the future.

The most important book on fetal alcohol disorder since Michael Dorriss The Broken Cord, Damaged Angels is a book for every parent, practitioner, and teacher working with a child with FASD.
