My child just got diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, now what?

In the days at the hospital following our daughters diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes, I googled furiously. I wanted to know everything. I drank from the fire hose. I needed control, I needed hope and peace and I needed someone to give it to me. I found an article written specifically from a Mom with a kid with type 1 to parents that we’re getting newly diagnosed with type 1 and I promised myself that one day I would write the same article.
