Adjust our sails…and pray for a cure

In searching for a preschool for Isa and her siblings for our impending return to the U.S. this summer, I never imagined what a challenge her diabetes would pose. While I understand 100% the concerns schools might have about a child with T1D enrolled, it’s not easy to hear them say “We’re just not comfortable with her being here” or “We may not be able to consider her but your other two we would be happy to have.”

Isabella is an amazing little girl and I know that no matter what challenges come our way, we’ll just adjust our sails…and pray for a cure
