It is six years to the day since Samuel was diagnosed. I am, every day, grateful for this healthy, strong, smart, thoughtful, funny boy of mine who is so quickly growing into a man. I am also thankful on a daily basis for insulin and for living in the Boston area, full of hospitals and technology.
Thank you, Sam. Every day of your life--before and after diabetes struck--you have taught me (sometimes with joy and laughter, sometimes with tears or frustration) what is most important in this life. I am so privileged to be your mother.
