Thanks for visiting! My name is Ashley and I am the mother of Carter, a now 17-month-old Neonatal Monogenic Diabetic. He is 2 in a million with this exact diagnosis and is currently managed by an Omnipod insulin pump and Dexcom G6 CGM. This blog is not just about our journey together since Carter’s diagnosis 11/1/17, but also about other parts of our lives, including a look into my journey through motherhood with 3 kids and the relationships we’ve made along the way.
