It all began when Alorah, who receives aid from the Food and Nutrition Service's Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program, was having trouble naturally breastfeeding her baby boy, Carson. Born prematurely and underweight, young Carson would only feed from a bottle, and Alorah was unable to produce enough milk naturally to keep him nourished. Carson also had trouble with every store-bought formula his mother tried to put him on, which made matters worse.
Desperate for a solution, Alorah eventually found a recipe from the Weston A.

Alorah's refusal to vaccinate her child also made her a target of the federal governmentAs it turns out, Alorah's use of fresh goat milk in her son's infant formula is not the only beef DHHS has with the 17-year-old mother. According to reports, Alorah's MaineCare doctor, Tasha Hoffman, had also repeatedly pressured Alorah to have Carson vaccinated, to no avail.
