#096 Alex Duthie: Humor Through Hard FASD Times

fasd success show Feb 19, 2022


If you are a member of my private online Facebook Group, you know it’s not my group. The group belongs to my guest today, who has become famous for his “wee chuckles” – Alex Duthie. 

People can come on, ask for info, advice, tell stories, or a good old vent. It’s like a 4,000 strong family. There’s no judgement. We just get on with it. 

Alex and his wife Sylvia have 6 bio children between them and fostered 2 boys with FASD. We talk about how they arrived at the fostering journey as well as: 

  • The challenges and strengths of Liam and Sean. 
  • How their caregiving changed after FASD training, their lightbulb moments and advice for other parents and caregivers. 
  • What Alex gives and receives from the group. 

Many posts make me cry. It’s heartbreaking. If I can just help to make someone forget just for one minute, just by giving them a smile, that has made my day. 

I also get the details on how he became such a big Harry Potter fan. Alex has certainly become an integral part of the group and I think after this podcast you will agree he has a knack for engaging people and making them laugh. So much so it’s part of the culture of the group and what sets it apart from others.
