New Found Joy...

6:38 PM

To most, this would look like a normal picture. Just a little girl playing in her room. When I look at this picture, I see so much more. This is Avery. Since birth, she has had a lot of health issues. At 4 months, a milk allergy. At 18 months, allergic to milk, soy, wheat, eggs, peanuts, animals, molds....you get the picture. Well, this is Avery yesterday, January 19th. This is Avery after getting her allergies re-tested. This is Avery NOT allergic to wheat and soy anymore. And, this is Polly...her gift from Toys R Us for being such a good sport. This child has never known the joy of eating...it has been something she has not really enjoyed. Avery and I went shopping for groceries last night. It was the most joyful day I have had for a long time. We spent $37 on "new foods". Cereals, crackers, breads, chicken nuggets...the world of food has now begun to open up to her....let's just hope she learns that food is a "joy"....
