|At almost 2 years.|

|Naomi can feed herself.|
|She eats on the go too with her backpack.|
Okay, so finally getting to the point. Awareness means to me that Naomi can go to school and be accepted by her peers as someone who just eats a little different. Awareness means going to the ER or to some doctors and having them understand the journey we've been through. Awareness means that another mother whose toddler is getting a tube for the very first time might not think she failed to feed her child, as I thought, but instead will know she is giving her child health. Awareness means people asking questions instead of staring. And most of all awareness means we don't have to hide that we are different.
