Just when we thought that we had life under control, our 3 year old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Two years later, our son was diagnosed too. Juvenile diabetes. A chronic disease. Not caused by eating too much sugar but by their bodies no longer making its own insulin. They require lots of blood checks and insulin shots. If we do everything right, the day may still not go according to plan. Our overall theme, is that God is in control!

we met Bret Michaels!
Tonight we met Bret Michaels at the his concert! We gathered local families and waited backstage for him to get ready to greet us. He was very kind and took time to smile and greet each child. He signed t shirts and even a woman's cast! He encouraged the children and even later dedicated a song to the type 1 diabetic kids in the audience. We are all so grateful that his manager worked this out for us and made time to meet kids just like him, living everyday but still facing the reality of type 1 diabetes. thank you Bret Michaels!
