Thanks for the comment, and for taking a look at the blog. I see your point about my daughter taking management of her diabetes - she is an independent, capable, and mature. teenager. Of course, like every mother, I want to keep her safe and give her a safety net so that she can have freedom to be who she needs to be! I wanted to write about my experiences as a mother with a child living with diabetes, hence my introduction. I would love your feedback from blog entries, if you have the time.
