Congrats on you upcoming adoption! I get a little larger reimbursement rate, but it goes for gas back and forth to the metabolism clinic and diaper rash meds. As of right now, the county is not willing to help with the cost of the pku special foods. The fact that my foster daughter CAN eat some regular foods – even if just in small quantities – causes them to not see it as a necessity.
