our journey of hope and healing through autism

“It’s an answer to prayer, Mom!”


A few months back, we felt like Hannah’s digestive tract might be ready to handle some non-SCD legal foods.  (Hannah had been on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet for 2.5 years) The first new food we tried was sweet potato.  Hannah’s loved sweet potato fries, and I’ve loved having a more carb rich food to feed her.

I’d felt that if I could learn to make a old-world style gluten free sourdough bread, that Hannah would be able to tolerate it without gas or stomach pain, since in the process of traditionally made sourdough bread, the grain is digested by the bacteria and yeasts that make the bread rise, and give the sourdough flavor.  Making the bread isn’t hard exactly, but there are so many steps, that it’s taken months to get fully prepared to making said bread.

Yesterday, Hannah had a slice.  I watched and waited over the next 24 hours- no gas, no tummy pain, or irritability, no waking in the night. I’m so thrilled.  Hannah must be too, since she said “Mom- I can eat bread!  It’s an answer to prayer!”

    Becky, I just now read your blog entry and I couldn’t help but tear up. I am happy for Hannah.
    That’s all!!
    Much Love,
