Connection: Mom of child (Grace) with type 1 diabetes

Standout Quote: “It was a long, long struggle to get here to this place. I sat in that hospital room when they diagnosed her with type 1 and I literally said to myself as I was hanging over the edge of the bed – ‘I don’t think I can do this’. I literally thought I couldn’t do it. But let me tell you – we ARE doing it. We CAN do this. The first few days; months; year was just ‘getting through’. But soon the days rolled on, the weeks rolled on, we were doing different things, we met other people who had type 1 diabetes, and that was wonderful.”
