I cannot thank you all enough. It is so great to be able to feed our guy the same food we eat and to help him feel included in our meal times.
My son and I are currently learning and working with our new device and I hope it will help tremendously in furthering his ability to speak.
I just wanted to thank you again for your promptness and assistance with supporting this family. You’ve been great!
