Give In Kind is a web site designed to help support those going through difficult times. And learning that a newborn baby has PKU certainly qualifies. On top of all the other stresses of having a newborn, families with a new PKU diagnosis need new tools, information, and additional support. Visit Give In Kind to browse support resources or create a page with items your family needs, then direct friends and family to that page when they ask what they can do to help.
So many people feel isolated with a new diagnosis — they are supposed to be happy, excited to bring their baby home — but instead they are afraid for the future, unsure of what comes next. The PKU community provides excellent support for these families — Facebook is full of threads of parents boasting about the achievements of their children with PKU, and sympathizing with the fears of parents of newborns. Give In Kind allows those outside the PKU community to support you as well.
