New Found Joy...

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"....

OH!!!! I just have GOOSEBUMPS all over right now, Jennisa!!! I haven't even "known" Avery long at all, but I've already been thinking of her lots, with her allergy test approaching on Friday. I just logged on and saw that I peer pressured you into a BLOG!!!!! YEAH!!!! (It is addictive, so beware. And it's SO fun!! P.S. Can I put a link to your blog on mine? So my friends can check your out if they want? Or would you rather I didn't?) So, I was thinking about Avery's allergies as I opened up your blog...and, lo and behold, I read this great news about her outgrowing some (all?) of her allergies!!! Praise God! Happy grocery shopping and happy eating, Avery!!
