Samantha was born in June of 2015. She was a beautiful and healthy baby. When Samantha was about two weeks old we received a phone call from her pediatrician saying her homocystine levels came back high on her newborn screen. A few months later we had her genetically tested and found the gene that lead to homocystinuria. She B6 non-responsive. She began her treatment of formula which was a mix of Prophree and HCY1. Samantha also began vitamins of B6, folic acid, and poly vi sol. Her levels were very good and she was developing as any normal baby would. It is one year later and she is still doing great. We struggle some with getting her daily caloric intake, but she is a smart and loving little girl. We are very blessed with this beautiful little girl and thankful to God for her love.
