this is samuel
this was samuel
the only difference?
he eats absolutely no gluten.
samuel has celiac disease.
he eats no gluten
not by choice
but for his life
and now he is thriving
life without gluten is challenging
there are moments where he’s mad
and i mourn for him
then i remember
i remember how he was six months ago
and i rejoice.
There is no cure besides not eating gluten.

And, if you have a question about Celiac Disease or how we live with a child who eats no gluten — ask away. What’s gluten? What do we do about bread? Or crumbs? Or dinners? It’s a complete lifestyle change. Symptoms? I’m hoping to take the questions asked — and the questions asked in emails I receive — and put together a faq page about our own journey.
