My daughter-in-law has pku and i never knew anything about it until i met her! She just recently found out that she was preganet and she was on the patch! So we immediatley took her to the doctor and they told her that the baby was probaly already damaged and that she neeeded to abort the baby! they said the baby would be born 90% profoundly mental retarded and all this other stuff well why dont people know about this stuff? We believe in god and that the 10% is gods so if anyone prays please pray for this baby and our family we really need your prayers! I think that people should be more aware of pku, because it really changes your entire life! Thanks!
