One of the greatest joys in the world is to look into the eyes of a small child and to see the world as they see it, trusting and in awe.

Children with their innocence do not understand things which are complex and they trust and depend on us to teach and explain to them as well as to protect them.

Diabetes afflicts both the young as well as the old, yet we blame and children accept.

Although they do not understand why.

When a child places his \ her hand in yours they are also placing blind faith in you that everything will be alright.
When you see a child drained of that youthful spirit, unnaturally tired yet trying to smile at you whenever they see you, it breaks your heart.

Happy one day, sad the next, energetic now, lifeless later, yet trying to force a smile when they see you.

A child will always keep your spirits high knowing that you need that smile much more than they do, what they need is that touch from you, a hug, a kiss, for you to hold their hand tightly, making them feel safe and secure.

We forget that something as simple as a smile does wonders, something that comes naturally is often hidden or forgotten entirely because we forgot that we were once innocent, once children.

We all share this pain in one way or another, together we can help ease some of it.

Smile !

that was a wonderful video and what a beautiful boy. it is amazing to see how many pokes and needles he has to endure and so many more ahead. He will do what he has to and maybe in his lifetime will see a cure. Thanks for sharing it was so touching.

My sweet innocence was stolen when I was 3 years old, and am just now finding it and starting to live my life like I SHOULD have to start with. I won't even try to explain or justify, but that is one reason I have shed so many tears thru the years, I never KNEW HOW to get STARTED!! Poor coping skills/struggles, only brought more misery down onto my head, not any worse than anyone else, but I have faced, or dodged, problems all of my life——-only to learn that I MUST FACE THEM, now my smiles are more real and honest.

No one knows where other's feet have trod so no one should be criticized for their humble beginnings——I can say no more—-Pat R
