Hello, my name is Sondra Torres,I am the adoptive mother of Chanel and co-author of Signing With A Heavy Hand and Heart, love mommy. Chanel was diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome at a very young age. Together we wrote this very educational book on the struggles, stressors and frightening situations while living through FAS. Chanel is a very brave young woman and has allowed me to tell some very private stories about her and her struggles all to save others from this 100% preventable birth disorder. many have told us "THIS SHOULD BE A MOVIE" it is very informative and a page turner .Chanel is on a mission to drastically reduce the numbers of babies born victim to FAS. Here are some of the awards she has won for her efforts:
Young heroes award by Pinellas County schools.
Everyday Heroes Award by Bill Murphy and
The National "YES I CAN" award for self advocacy and this award winning can be viewed on YouTube, just put Chanel Torres in the YouTube search bar.
Everyday Heroes from Bill Murphy and BayNews 9 in March 2013 named Chanel as Health Advocate of the Year.
Everyone that has read this book stated that they CRIED, LAUGHED AND BECAME VERY ANGRY.
our book reviews on Amazon Books are wonderful and all positive.
PS: Chanel named the book and after you read the book you will see where she got the name from.
we would love to hear from you ...Please put a book review in on Amazon.com Books. or email me at NUURSE@AOL.COM. Thank you so very much

I take my FAS and turn it into a teaching tool to help others learn what I go through every day of my life. If one person listens to what I have to say, then I have done my job. This is what I was born to do. I have won many awards for my work. The awards I’ve won have been great, but my biggest award is knowing that my message is being delivered and knowing I might make a difference for 1 child
