Mothers Intuition

Have you ever had an instinct? An instinct that begins as a gnawing...Then grows into a raging burn; a burning instinct that something is wrong...

Your baby continues to get sick from the very foods he is supposed to thrive on. I did. I am a mom of a little boy just diagnosed with FPIES.

And that burning feeling now? Extinguished. My instincts? Stronger than ever. Guiding me, with my faith, as we navigate through the murky waters of our new world created by something called FPIES.

"Faith is not about everything turning out OK; Faith is about being OK no matter how things turn out."

FPIES makes National News on Good Morning America!

Parents Limit Child to less than 10 foods is the title of the Good Morning America segment dedicated to raising awareness of FPIES through a family's story.

The title is deceiving but eye catching and eye catching is what we need.   We need to continue to raise awareness, that from the outside looking in, despite how it looks from the outside- our children are sick and our families are struggling because of the lack of awareness and treatment plans. 

Please take a moment to view the video, if you have not already watched it.   Good Morning America did a good job in covering many of the facts that FPIES families share.
