Does anyone know of a Peanut Allergic parent who has a non-allergic child?

I am a new mother, and I have the peanut allergy. My baby is only 9 months old and I am very careful with her babyfood diet, but I am so frightened that she will inherit my peanut allergy. No one I talk to even knows of any adults with this allergy, so no one can reassure me that there is a chance that my daughter won't have this.

I have noticed on these boards that there are some allergic parents with allergic children, but if anyone out there can give me hope, that maybe she won't have this allergy, I would appreciate it.

We will eventually test our daughter, but I am in no hurry to do it since a test would expose her for the first time to peanuts.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
