I was 20 when I became pregnant with my first child. It wasn’t long before we were thrown a curveball. Serious health problems with our little boy. Thrown into the unknown at a young age I had to learn quick. Unfortunately I’m a trial and error type and the learning process took longer than expected. The truth is, it never stops. Just like our children, we are continually growing, changing, and adapting. I closed my eyes, and then there I was, 28 with three, soon to be four, beautiful little mouths to feed, and another child with a developmental disorder. Why have I been so healthy and my children are not? There are no genetic pre-dispositions, so what have I done wrong? What should I feed them?
In hindsight, without asking these questions, my family would not be as healthy and thriving as they are today. Therefore, I encourage you, discover and reveal the questions you have. Hopefully, some of my own experiences may encourage or enlighten you and aid in your family’s journey to health.
