The 4 Fords are Karyn, Clint, Mason and Maiya. We are truly Michiganders, but moved to Colorado back in January of 2009 when I was six months pregnant with Maiya. Couldn’t pass up the chance of a lifetime and I have to admit we are suckers for making our life harder than it already is. Move across the county in two weeks with a two-year old while pregnant? Sounds like a good time if you ask me!

This blog started as our way of keeping in touch with all of our family back in Michigan. Actually, the truth is, Clint started this blog in the labor and delivery room while in was in labor. As if natural childbirth wasn’t enough to keep us busy that day! So this is my way of making everyone pretend that we still live only minutes apart. Yes, I can have my cake and eat it too. I just can’t bake it because of this whole altitude issue.

This is also my virtual scrapbook for Mason and Maiya because everything I have saved for their real scrapbook is piled in boxes and probably won’t see the light of day until Maiya starts kindergarten and I am sitting at home totally regretting that vasectomy a certain someone had…

This blog has also become something I never expected. This is our story of Maiya’s food allergies and how NAET changed our lives. I have described to the best of my ability what we went through. It was a hard decision refusing to listen to our pediatrician and trying something that sounds to me like “voodoo.”  We were lucky to have someone incredibly knowledgeable and experienced in the area to explain things because I’ve read the book and that just made it sound weirder. I know there are a lot of people out there considering NAET that are curious what it is really all about. If you stumble upon my blog hopefully my descriptions of the treatment will give you some extra information to help in your decision. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I am now a firm believer that NAET works and hope that if you are looking for an alternative to conventional medicine this is worth giving a try.
