    With all of the things we have to deal with regarding our children with D it's easy to feel overwhelmed with all the challenges we face everyday. We've had some amazing things happen in our family recently and I wanted to share it with those of you who may be interested.

    We held a fundraiser this last month to try and raise the money we needed to get Connor an insulin pump. It was the most heart warming experience of my life.

    Here is the thank you video I made that gives a glimpse of what took place

    Just wanted to share how kind and generous people can be.

    Yes the goodness of humanity is amazing. All you ever hear is how bad people are, but when given the chance people can astound you in the most humbling of ways with their kindness and selflessness.


    I've done nothing but cry for a month, but for good reasons. It's been wonderful to watch Connor through this process. He's been having a hard time and has been seeing a therapist, but this experience has put that sparkle back in his eye and for that I would have done anything.

    I'm glad you all enjoyed it. It's hard sometimes to know what to share with the world and what not to share, but this has been something so amazingly wonderful that it's hard to contain.

    I just talked to the medtronic rep today and we are hoping to be pumping in the next 3 weeks or so.:D
