This is my little boy Tristen. He is 6 years old and has down syndrome. February 2013 Tristen was also diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Because of the diagnose of down syndrome he can not communicate when hes having high or low blood sugar. We constantly poke his little fingers to test him but he always has a smile. We are in the process of getting a diabetic alert dog, his story can be found on facebook “A Guardian for Tristen”. I wouldnt change anything about my little boy he has taught me so much and that God only gives us what we can handle. We need a cure NOW!
