I never thought this day would come. It's been a long journey for Ian and our family as we've experienced the ins and outs of a dairy allergy. Then last week, at the doctor's office for our follow-up visit, we heard the news that would bring our lives back to a normal state.

Food allergies: negative.

Yep. Can you believe it? Ian has outgrown his dairy allergy. Now he can enjoy Pepperidge Farm goldfish with his classmates at church, garlic breadsticks from Olive Garden, and of course, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. I'm telling you the kid has never been happier, and his weight is back up. In fact, today with dinner, part of his divided plate contained cottage cheese. That's one food I'm happy to take off my plate and put on his.
