Hi Piper,

I've been reading your blog for ages now, from London, Ontario.  Originally because we thought my young son had cf I turned to websites like yours to immerse myself in it.  When we found out that he did NOT hav cf, we were of course relieved, but I feel an odd kinship with those that do.  So I have kept reading, thinking and praying about you.  You sound awesome, ambitious, fun and from a great family.  And your puppy is SO cute.  Almost as cute as our baby golden retriever that we are raising to work with children with autism!  Her name is Isla and she rocks.  Anyway, I just thought I'd comment for the first time so you'd know there's another reader in your corner who checks your blog for your updates!


Take care.
