This mother drank while pregnant. Here’s what her daughter’s like at 43.

Kathy got pregnant when she was in 10th grade. Due to lack of awareness and education, Kathy drank heavily during her pregnancy. When her daughter, Karli, was born, the doctors said she was healthy. Kathy continued to drink during other pregnancies, and sadly, the babies passed away.

At 43 years old, Karli has the developmental age of a first grader.

In order to bring awareness to other mothers, Kathy became the Vice President of the National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
