Can’t, Not Won’t: A Christian Response to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
And now, for the longer review….
Individuals and families who live with FASD desperately need the acceptance, nurture, and care the church can offer, and the church desperately needs the courage, enduring hope, and love we can offer. It is a long, hard journey, and God is glorified when we learn to walk it together.
Can’t, Not Won’t
FASD is a term that describes a range of life-long cognitive, physical, behavioral and mental disabilities that can result when a mother drinks alcohol, which passes to the fetus. We are introduced to two families living with FASD and their church communities. The main purpose of the film is to increase viewers' understanding of the impact of FASD on affected individuals and families, and to explore how the church can respond in helpful and supportive ways. Producer: Mennonite Central Committee Canada
