Hello dawnlarea, welcome! There are probably not any regular members here who have type 1 children. Jwags has given you a better website to use. There are many parents there with type 1 kids. If you use Facebook, there are also many groups there for parents.
I have been type 1 for 66 years and am very healthy. With good care your son can have a long, healthy life. Good luck to both of you!!
