Miranda Was Diagnosed With Type 1 Diabetes Two Years Ago & It Has Forever Changed the Speirs' Family - Read About Their Journey Through the Eyes of a Father

I watched my daughter, three-year-old Miranda, play carefree with the toys in the pediatrician's waiting room...both of us oblivious to the news we were about to receive and how our family's life was about to drastically change. The doctor came back into the room with a look I had never seen before. This was Dr. Widelitz, a jovial, warm and very funny man usually, but that afternoon in March 2009 he knew the extent of the news he was about to divulge. He simply said that Miranda had ketones in her urine and that usually meant a diagnosis of diabetes.
