This is GG, aged 9 and 3 quarters. On Tuesday she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. This is her 24 hours later, in hospital, having already learned to prick her own fingers for blood sugar testing, and inject herself with insulin. I am proud, and humbled by her bravery. She is the most amazing person I know.

This is her 48 hours after diagnosis. She will not let this change her:

I will not be sharing posts this week; we have just so much to get to grips with right now, and I need to focus on my family for a while. But I couldn’t not show you this incredible, brave girl. Feel free to add your post to the linky if you’d like.

The Expressions linky is all about sharing your weekly photo post of a face that means something to you.
