I am a mother of one.  One very active, intelligent, can light up a room, toddler that I call “Squid”.  If you saw the way his hands attached to everything you pass or how he could wiggle from your arms in one twist, you’d understand!  I’m a full-time wife and mommy and part-time preschool childcare worker at our church.  I never fully understood how much I loved and needed Christ until I had a baby, especially one with food allergies.

“I prayed to the Lord and he answered me.  He freed me from all my fears.”  Psalms 34:4
I live by this scripture (among others) because otherwise I’d be a nervous wreck over my child’s safety around food. Yes, I worry but I know God is watching over him.

We do still have meat in most of our dishes but having a food allergy child has made us explore foods we thought we’d never try.  Vegan.  God bless vegans!  They make life with dairy and egg allergies so much easier!
