    Hi Samm,

    This is a great post. Sounds like Talia is a wonderful addition to your family. I would be interested in hearing more about her feeding troubles. Kendall has a rough time eating, mainly due to her gag reflex. I’ve never heard about a child not feeling pain. Has she ever cried because something hurt her? Please add a picture when you get a chance!
