Married my husband Jason, 7/7/2007.  Together we have two children.  Nathan was born August 2008, and was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was one month old.  We knew there was a possibilty he would be born with Cystic Fibrosis because we found out we were both carriers of the CF gene during the pregnancy.  He was flagged for one of the mutations on the newborn screening, and after several attempts at sweat testing (not enough sweat to collect), his was diagnosed through a blood test of our two mutations.

Teagan was born 2 years later, in September 2010, and does not have Cystic Fibrosis.
