(With Lori Wetzel, mama of 3) Illnesses can bully everything & everyone in their path. Superheroes exist!
Lori is one of them. She’s the mama of a son with Type 1 Diabetes. Lori shares a day in her life, from waking up to test blood sugar levels every few hours, to keeping track & managing her son’s food intake, so he can sometimes splurge on candy & other fun “kid things”.
She also gets real and shares about the highs & lows that are all part of living with a beautiful kiddo with demanding needs. You’ll walk away with tips on dealing with major challenges as a family- and a profound respect for the families confronted with life changing illness.
You’ll Also Learn:
- How fighting an illness takes a strong marriage. Stick together. Your spouse is the only person who truly knows what life is like for you.
- Lori gives suggestions on finding community, particularly people who are going through similar challenges or are in similar situations
- Sometimes community is online- that works too! Being able to connect and “let go” with people in your same shoes both near and far can alleviate a lot of loneliness you might feel.
Who is Lori Wetzel?
Simultaneously adopting a newborn, getting pregnant & adding a third child to the mix fifteen months later hasn’t left Lori & Chris much time. Parents to two very busy six year old girls & a 4 year old son (living with type 1 diabetes), these parents are an amazing example of the tenacity, tenderness, love and endurance it takes to raise kids who have special needs.
