My son has been part of our local public access radio station's youth collective for a couple years now. Every month, the kids pick a theme and do a show. This month, the theme was "The Letter C." My son decided to do his piece on celiac disease and cross contamination. He wrote it up and recorded it himself :) http://kboo.fm/node/32879

This was a big deal, as no one at the youth collective except one friend knew that he had celiac disease. He's sat there and watched them all eat snacks he can't have every week all year and not said anything. In fact, the night he decided to do this piece, there was even a surprise pizza party half way through the meeting. (The group facilitator went and found him some clementine oranges for him when she realized of course the pizza wouldn't be ok.)

Anyway, I'm proud of him.

Thanks for the positive words, everyone. This was a big step for him since he likes to just be one of the guys with his friends. I was surprised he wanted to do it and am very proud of him!
