I came across this poem, A Mother’s Promise, years ago and absolutely love it! I am not sure of its origin (if someone does know, please let me know so I can give proper credit).
There have been many times when something comes up (extracurricular activities, play dates, etc.) and I get overwhelmed thinking about how diabetes plays in to it all, and I always think of this poem and tell myself, “Don’t say no to something because of diabetes. Diabetes will not stop him- I promise him so.”
