Hi, friends. For those of you who do not know, my DD is a foster mom and has had a baby here with us (we live in attached houses) for 5 weeks. Baby Rachel just turned one and continues to throw up every day. Bethany is now giving her only 4 oz of formula every 1 1/2 hours to help her digest it. She cannot tolerate any food, even baby food. Today she has had three episodes of diarhea. We are very concerned. Rachel has an appointment on Wednesday with a gastroenterologist. The good news is that she has continued to gain weight under B's care. Pray for the doctors to find out what is wrong, for Rachel to be able to keep her formula down and for B to have the energy to care for her two sons, a homeless 7 year old boy who is staying with them and for Rachel. Amazingly, Rachel continues to be a cheerful, sweet girl who hardly ever fusses. We thank God for her!

Yes, she is on lactose free prescription formula.

I remember one of my teachers in college telling us about his son's allergies. He couldn't take his mother's milk, so they tried formula. Then every type of "free" formula there was until they settled on rice milk. He has allergies to dairy, nuts, soy and gluten (among others I probably don't remember). Poor kid. I hope that's not little Rachel's problem because allergies SUCK! Especially when they're so little and they can't tell you what's wrong.

Prayers for this sweet baby, Rachel. She has been placed with your daughter for a reason. That is why she is continuing to gain weight through her problems. You will find the answers.

I so wanted to be a foster parent but half way through all the training I had to stop. I just know my heart would break for every single child that came into my care...it takes an incredibly strong person to be able to foster children and then give them up. I just couldn't do it. Kudos to your daughter...she must have a heart of gold!
