Feeding Eden Giveaway
Have you heard about Feeding Eden? It's a new memoir about how a child's food allergies affect the lives of a family. I'm in the process of reading it, but it's slow going for me--not because it isn't compelling but because it makes me start to tense up and hyperventilate. Which means this book is an excellent portrayal of what it means to be a food allergy family. Here is the author, Susan Weissman, talking about the book on YouTube.
I think it's a good read for everyone. Food allergy parents will relate to it, of course, but more importantly, I think it is a great chance for others to get into the head of a food allergy parent.
"We parents can't make magic. We can't transform our children. But we can heal with our touches, our words, and our love. We can show them how to take their medicine. When we do this, our children can save themselves."--Susan Weissman, Feeding Eden
