I am the mother of three beautiful girls. Allison is 11, Jessica is 9, and Alexis is 5. Ally was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in February of 2009. My husband, Keith, and I spent the first year after Ally's diagnosis managing and coping with the day to day trials of our new life with diabetes. Then I began blogging. I hope to use this blog to move forward - to connect with others who understand, to learn more, to educate others, and to just plain vent about diabetes.
