Regina Doman, Fairy Tales, and Juvenile Diabetes

I am making a special appeal to you on behalf of our dear Regina Doman. If you do not know Regina, she is a very special Catholic homeschooling mother. Her Fairy Tale Novels have been inspiring teens, including my daughters, for some years now. When I see Regina at conferences there is always a line out the door of homeschooled teens waiting their turn to gush over her.

Recently, Regina's 6-year-old son was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. Unfortunately, the Doman's current financial and insurance situation leaves little if any room to cover the projected on-going costs of managing this illness.

What I would like to ask of you is this:

In addition to your prayers, please ask your bookstore, library, youth group, homeschool group, school, and book club to consider buying Regina Doman's Fairy Tale Novels.

Buying directly from Regina is the best route to help financially. Also, Regina's Fairy Tale Novels are available on and Barnes & Noble, as well as from these websites and others:

St. George Books
Adoremus Books
Catholic Child
Catholic Company
Living Bread

Interestingly, Regina's Fairy Tale Novels will also be available in Polish. She recently signed an agreement with a publisher in Poland. How cool is that!

I am looking for the connection with Juvenile diabetes and do not see any mention. We are Catholic, and have a 13 year old son who has type 1 diabetes , I was curious if this author had a book that tied the two things together...

Please disregard the previous post...I see now that the mention of diabetes is her son. I fully appreciate this appeal. When my, now 13 year old son was diagnosed at age 8, it not only emotionally floored us, it nearly financially devastated us. We were forced to change our lifestyle in many ways. One lasting example was when my daughter had to sacrifice a chance for a college scholarship in swimming as we could no longer afford the swim fees. It was a hard thing to accept- the fears for my son, the tears from the sacrifices, but God is good! He led us through the difficulties and with the help of our faith, friends and the understanding that all things happen for a reason we have, united as a family, survived. My prayer and best wishes go with this author and her family. I will do my best to spread the word of her works.
