Christopher's father Ron writes:
I diagnosed my son as diabetic when he was approaching his third birthday. This was devastating to all involved. We cried and asked why us? But we very soon realized that life goes on! Christopher is happy and healthy and loves life. He is so full of life! God has blessed him and us!
My advice to other parents with newly diagnosed diabetic children is simple: follow the medical professionals' advise. Look your baby in the eyes and make him/her a promise: that you will learn all that there is to know about your child's challange -- all that you can and make good on that promise.
Pay close attention. Your child is special. You have a great responcibility. Every child is different. Their diabetic responses are different. You will soon be the best specialist and protection that you child has. Be strong. Your are not alone. Our prayers are with you.
Mr. and Mrs. Ronald K. Selter
