Home base: The Billetdeaux Family in Manchester, Michigan
August 15, 2001
Rufus leaves his friends, The Billetdeaux's, to travel to Louisville, Kentucky, for the American Association of Diabetes Educator national conference! He wants to meet lots of diabetes professionals so he can tell them how important it is for kids with type 1 to have a friend who understands, even if that friend is "just a bear!"
Rufus has spent the last month sitting on Laura's desk, overseeing preparations for the conference in Disney. He is anxious to get on the road to meet new friends and families!
Bon Voyage, Rufus! Safe travels!
Your friends, the Billetdeaux's
Sam (11, dx'd 8/98), Carolyn (13), Neal, and Laura
