My friend, Karri Andersen just published a book! I am extremely jealous because I have always wanted to be a writer. How many times have I started a writing project and then given it up because I was sure that nobody would like it, I wasn’t any good..etc., etc.. Anyway, this isn’t about me, it is about how she wrote the book for a heart-felt purpose.
Karri’s daughter, Kindra was diagnosed with Diabetes when she was 4 years old. It was very scary and very strange for this young girl (and her family). Karri wrote a book called “I Have Diabetes” about a little girl who has just been diagnosed with Juvenile (Type 1) diabetes and her struggle to understand and cope with her new situation. You can see the book through this link: https://www.createspace.com/3450297
I am so glad that Karri didn’t give up on her idea to help other children cope with and understand their disease. I believe she has made it possible for even children not diagnosed to understand and accept what their friends and classmates might be dealing with.
Congratulations, Karri; and Thank you.
