Lauren: She still has diabetes, her insulin pump still has to be changed every two days, and she still has to get her tummy poked twice each time they do that. But Lauren refuses to let anything dim her optimism.

Kimie: Born 12 weeks premature, Kimie weighed a mere 2 pounds, 14 ounces at birth, and spent the first 65 days of life in a neonatal intensive care unit.
