Umm...we took in a foster baby on Monday as an emergency case.
He's 14 months old.

So we now have a 12 month old and a 14 month old.

That's all the update we have time for.

Our baby was diagnosed with FPIES at 6 months of age.
I can't get into specifics until he's officially ours, but it was a NIGHTMARE to discover this.

We have several specialists working side by side with us to make sure we don't have any more nightmares like that.

In the midst of all this, I have found a wonderful online support group from other FPIES moms.  All like me, exhausted, worried, trusting the Lord and praying for healing for our babies.  And then one of them shared w/ us about something called GAPS diet.  And then other moms piped in saying they had heard about it and were thinking of trying it.

So I started doing tons of research on it.  It sounds like a miracle.
Here's the link w/ the most beneficial info in a language that is understandable  :).

If you were me, would you try it?
