I would like to find a child close to my daughter's age (11 1/2) who also has Celiacs. I feel it would good to be able to talk to someone her own age with the same issues she has to go through.

Is there a celiac support group in your area? They sometimes offer get togethers for kids or teens; I know the one in my city has a couple of teen parties and a week long summer camp just outside of town. Contacting your local support group might be a good way to find other kids.

I'm afraid I won't volunteer my boys as pen pals. They are a bit younger than her and, like typical boys, do not enjoy writing much nevermind to a (gasp) girl. ;)

Best wishes.

My daughter would love it I'm sure! She's 11 and was diagnosed at age 4. If you'd like, PM me.
