Sarah, your baby will be okay. I’m 15 and out of seven kids me and my 8 year old sister have PKU and are both healthy and happy. My mother was only about 21 when I was born (I’m the third out of me and my siblings) and if you want the honest truth if a cure for PKU were created I probably wouldn’t take it. I know that may sound crazy but I’ve never eatten meat and have never had the urge to and never will.
