As Callans first diaversary approached, I tried to think of ways to make the day special for him. I didn't want it to be a sad day, and let diabetes win. I wanted it to be a day that he looks back on and says "Look how far I've come!" So I started a diaversary card exchange in my facebook group that is for parents of babies/toddlers with diabetes.
When Callans first diaversary came, the cards and even small gifts, were pouring in. Callan was so happy, and excited! When I told him that these were from other kids with diabetes just like him, he was even more excited!! It was an amazing day.

I want to extend this opportunity to the rest of the DOC. It doesn't matter how old you are, or how long since the diagnosis. I want to help you, or your little one feel special and not so alone on that day!
I am looking for volunteers to make cards each month. For your privacy, these will be sent to me, and then I will send all of them to your address. This is free! You just need to sign up!
If you are interested, please send me a message on Facebook through The Diaversary Club or you can email me!
