A Wonderful Welcome!

All I can say right now is WOW!!! I had no idea how much support I was going to receive from this amazing blogging world when I first decided to reach out and start telling my story to others. I have been accepted into this wonderful family of bloggers with wide open arms and I have to say that it is like medicine for my soul.

Thank you to everyone who has stopped by to say hello and tell me alittle bit about your stories, one thing that I am realizing is that we all are truly connected...type 1 diabetes connects us in a way that many don't fully understand, reading some of the other diagnosis stories was at times like reading my own. We all had similar experiences, the same symptoms, those nagging feelings of fear in the back of our minds, dismissing it, thinking that we are overreacting. And then the awful diagnosis...I am thankful that there are people out there who understand, I look forward to what the future holds for my family, and I also look forward to building friendships with people I may have never even crossed paths with had it not been for this outlet.

It is amazing how something so simple as...((Hugs))..."We are here for you"..."Welcome"...can warm my heart and give me the lift that I so desperately needed.

It was a wonderful welcome!


  1. Hi Connie!
    I'm Hallie. I'm a little late but I wanted to welcome you to the wonderful world of the blogging D Mommas! My daughter, Avery, was diagnosed almost a year ago - April 27, 2009. She just turned 4. You can find out more about us at BitterSweet -
    It's so nice to "meet" you! I look forward to getting to know you better!

  2. Hi Connie,

    I, too, am a little late. Nonetheless, I extend a warm welcome! :) My six-year-old son Jack was diagnosed in October, 2007. I blog at

    I'm a newcomer to the group as well. This is a really warm, welcoming, suppportive online community. It's great to be connected with other parents who just "get it."

    Looking forward to reading more of your blog and getting to know you,

  3. Welcome! I've learned so much from these fellow D moms!! This is a great D blog community~

  4. Connie, you can for sure add me to your blog list! I usually ask if it is a new blogger...but if you see other blogs on multiple blog lists, generally the authors look at this as an honor. Grab anyone off my bloglist. They are all good with it. :)

  5. Hi Connie! Welcome! I'm a bit late to the party, but I always love reading new d-blogs. :-)
