Elizabeth, age 6, dx'd at age 4 with type 1 diabetes
Elizabeth (now 6) asked me if people with diabetes could still have children. She knew a little bit about my own struggles, due in part to my being diabetic, to build a family. I assured her, that yes, people with diabetes can, and do, have babies too. She was elated at the idea of someday being a real mom too, and decided to write to her future children. It was with a mother's joy and sadness that I read her letter knowing well the challenges ahead for her and the genetic transmission rate of diabetes.
Her letter is a reminder that my genes passed along to her, may well be passed along to her own children someday. We need a cure. We really do.
Hi My Name Is Lizzie,
I made this when I was 6 years old. You would love my mom if you ever get to meet her, she's really nice. She's sweet, nice and she's calm. And she's a lot of fun.
Someday when you are born, well, even the second you are in me, remember I will always love you.
Joy to my kids...
Someday your Mom, Lizzie
