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."

Raising Awareness during Food Allergy Awareness Week!

In honor of Food Allergy Awareness week this year, I contacted our local news station, after seeing that the same network had done a short story on our friends in Massachusetts, I inquired if they were interested in hearing more about living with this rare food allergy called FPIES.  They were more than happy to help us raise awareness and provided a nice short piece, spotlighting Little Man.  You can view it here: Rochester boy suffering from rare food allergy helps spread the word.
