This site was originally created as an online baby book of sorts. A way to keep long-distance family members and friends up-to-date on what was happening in our family when we added a little one. For two years, it was just that. Interesting to close friends and family, but not necessarily note-worthy to a broader audience.
On September 10, 2011, barely two months past his second birthday, our son Cooper was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. While this site will certainly still serve to update our loved ones on Cooper’s comings and goings, I hope people who are on a similar journey will find their way here. I hope our adjustment to and life with this NEW NORMAL can provide information and inspiration to the parents and extended families of Type 1 kids.
Join us on this journey and come back often to check in!
