Sorry, but I have to vent on this one. As a born again Christian, as well as being a Type I Diabetic, I am outraged at what has happened to this little girl. This did not have to happen! View the news story (warning, commentator Nancy Grace is annoying) on how this family did not get help for their daughter, and slowly let her die from ketoacidosis, caused by Type I diabetes (you'll have to believe me on this one, ketoacidosis is not fun...). I completely believe in the power of prayer, but that doesn't mean ignorance. I can't imagine watching my child suffer like this, and I can't imagine what the daughter was thinking. Did she know it didn't have to be this way? Did she share her parents belief? I pray she is at peace now.
