    When children are born, the hopes and dreams of their parents are also born. A diagnosis of type 1 diabetes can seem to derail those dreams.

    On September 1, 2013, after 24 years living with type 1 diabetes, my daughter Marissa realized her dream of becoming a mother, making Brenda and I grandparents. Marissa, her baby boy, and husband Adam are doing well.

    It's a great thing to be a grandparent.

    And it's a great thing to pursue your dreams.

    Thank you, when you post about becoming a grandparent and nothing about your dd's experience of pregnancy and type 1 it makes me smile.
