OUR CONNECTION TO FOOD ALLERGIES
In February of 2013, our son was diagnosed with food allergies. After an allergic reaction to peanut butter and some blood tests, we found he not only had a severe peanut allergy but also moderate allergies to dogs, walnuts, eggwhites (now outgrown), and wheat (now outgrown). In 2015, he was also diagnosed with asthma. Both of our children have eczema.
As we have searched for answers, we have learned so much about allergies, made new friends, and grown closer as a family. The road is a difficult one that many people do not understand unless they have traveled it themselves. It is our hope that our family can be encouraging and helpful to other families navigating food allergies.
