    Hi!

    Are there scheduled meetups of any sort for kids with diabetes? I would like my little one to know that their are other kids like him so he doesnt grow up feeling different. We live in the Austin area right now. He is a bit too young for camps but playdates would be really awesome.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!!!
    Tina

    Are you in Austin TX or another state? (There is more than one Austin in this country).

    If you mean Texas, I would get involved with JDRF. The local chapter has several get togethers planned for parents and children with diabetes. http://www.jdrf.org/index.cfm?page_id=112219

    Also, during the last week of June there is a day camp for children with diabetes and their siblings held an hour north of town, with bus transportation provided from three sites in Austin. http://www.childrensdiabetescamp.org/. At this camp, your son can meet other children his age living with diabetes.
