Inside Verse: You’re the same great kid you’ve always been. Unless you painted yourself green since I last saw you!

it’s hard feeling different from your peers when you’re a kid diagnosed with diabetes. You feel … alienated!

Visit Doreen’s Salon of Art shop for more great cards. Thanks, Doreen! 🙂
