Hello everyone I am new to this site and will need all the help that I can get. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am a 55 year old female. I am a foster parent of medically fragile children. Currently we have four ages 9 years, 4 years, 3 years and 2 years old. They keep me going but not enough to keep my blood sugars down. I am happly married for twenty years to a man that was recently diagnosed with MS. I can't wait to meet some of you and have some friends that share my same medical condition. Looking forward to getting some new ideas to help.

Hey Darla! since you have MS, are you aware of a sister site to DC? at the black band on top of page mouseover "visit another community". from the drop down menu select "multiple sclerosis" log in using the sign in information from DC.

Since I don't have MS I'm not on that board, but if my experience on the other "connect" sites is any indication, I suspect you'll be pleased

hello and welcome! it takes a very special person to become a foster parent especially to several children. Best wishes to you

Hi, I'm new here too. I am not diabetic but am wondering about the recipes. I have celiac and figure I can learn something from this group.

Wow, 4 foster kids and fragile yet. Your a great person.

I am glad you are here.. I am happy that you are a foster parent as I was a foster child for most of my life. There is not a lot of people willing to do that for some one elses children. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing what you do.. that is very giving of you. Sorry to hear your husband has MS. I am a type 2 and have been for 7 years but I am learning right now because I was in denial for a long time. But after joining this site I have stepped up to the plate and am taking care of my self. You will have lots of friends and people to support you from DC, I love this site! and I am sure you will to.

Why thank you very much. We just love children and I want to be able to stay around for a long time to be able to help as many as I can. Is it okay if I add you as my FIRST friend?
