Hope for Hudson
At the birth of a new child, parents have such grand hopes in all that they will become.  No one hopes for a rare disease that without unimaginable dietary restrictions, they would become developmentally, intellectually, and neurologically disabled in less than a year.  When Hudson was born in December 2013, the state-mandated newborn screening test identified elevated levels in phenylalanine indicating that he most likely was affected with PKU.  Further testing confirmed the diagnosis for life.
