The Thank Yous

So sorry for the lack of new recipes! Our kitchen is STILL torn to pieces (but we are making progress!) and. . .a little foreshadowing here. . .you may all be seeing our kitchen in all of its glory before too long with moving pictures. . .

So in lieu of a recipe tonight, I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for all of our supporters who have been right beside us in the kitchen all these months! Thank you for all of you for giving us inspiration and strength to try new things, new ways of doing old things and new avenues for doing them.

Thank you most of all for inspiring each other and for reaching out to all parents, new and "veteran." I look on the FPIES boards and groups and I see so many of you connecting and sharing. I love that when a new parent calls out for help, all of you are THERE for them because we have all been in that place, that scary, dark place, waiting for someone to respond to us, to help us find answers when doctors tell us there are none.  I feel so honored to be a part of this group, this COMMUNITY, and I am so touched that so many of you, fighting so hard for your own children, will think nothing of reaching out and offering a hand to help fight for someone else's baby, too. We might not be able to change the diagnosis, but our community is giving a face, a name and an incredible support network to our children and families. Thank you for all that you have done and for all that you continue to do. This community never ceases to amaze me.


  1. As moms we need to support each other and help each other....there are so many moms out there that feel lost when their child is diagnosed with food allergies and the doctors in my opinion haven't been all that has been the support of other moms that has helped the most!!! Keep up the good work!!

  2. I completely agree! You keep up the good work too, mama! ;)
