Welcome to Barefoot with Maria!

Welcome to my little world! I am very excited to have you here!

I am a Puertorican momma to two awesome kids and wife to a great husband. I started this blog as an inspiration in helping parents and/or caregivers in overcoming the overwhelming challenges that comes about being a parent to a diabetic child. My daughter was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 1 when she was only 15 months old. This blog will mostly focus on how we overcome the struggles and challenges a parent and/or a caregiver faces every day with this chronic condition. I will also talk about everything motherhood and parenting for new moms and dad, and the challenges they may have as a new parent.

My mission in life is to teach both my children to be kind, big-hearted, respectful, and to be as independent as possible, so they are ready for the real world when they get older.

My goal is for you to find this website useful and for you to have comforting knowledge that you are not alone. We are all in this amazing journey called parenting.

Thank you for making me part of your world, and I hope to help you find the answers that you are looking for.
