to all the teachers in our life...


did you know?

that almost my entire family are teachers?

my mom, sister, 2 brother-in-laws, sister-in-law...it's kinda crazy...

and then when you figure how many friends of ours are teachers and administrators...it really adds up to a ton of teachers in our life.

for the past 1.5 years, the staff at abbie's school have been working like crazy to help her catch up...help us figure out how to help her.  reading resource, social work, occupational/sensory interventions...in fact, without the comment one of the staff members regarding a gluten free/dairy free diet and its potential to help abbie...would i have even decided to take that next step?  one can never know...

what if there are more abbie's out there?  what if she is not the only one?  and a change in diet could help unlock more little brains and make all of these heroic (and often unnoticed) efforts of teachers and schools amount to a substantial increase of academic achievement?

i wanted to beat myself over the head when working with abbie before the food change...she just wasn't with me.  and when your brain can't be there...no change in curriculum, staff or school could have made a difference with our abbie.  she never would have caught up.  she might have always been on a caseload...

thank you fairhaven school.  thank you for never giving up on abbie.  a diet change + the academic assistance you gave her = crazy success.  you all are making a difference.  never ever doubt it.

man oh man oh man.

can you just imagine...

i think some hope just might be out there... for realz.

xoxo
