I am 37 and stay at home with my kids. Before kids, I taught 3rd grade, computers and substitute taught for several years as well. We just found out about my son 2 months ago and I am still reeling from the shock. I had many problems getting pregnant and then got pregnant with my son while taking a break from fertility treatments.
About my family:
My son was just diagnosed with Dushenne's md. He just turned 4 in Feb. We are waiting to see Dr. Wong at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. I also have 2 daughters, a 2 1/2yr old and a 7 month old.

My name is Diana Elder. Jill Keenan gave me your name. She said you had moved to Dallas. We live in Allen, TX north of Dallas near Plano, McKinney and Frisco. I'm very sorry about your son Corbin's recent diagnosis. Our son Logan, who will turn 4yrs this month, was diagnosed about 4weeks ago. I know the pain you are feeling. It feels like my heart is breaking. I just registered for the Connect conference. I'll be rooming with a mom from Vermont. Ryan Fischer the contact person for the conference gave her my name. If you are planning to attend alone you could stay with us. Unless you like rooming alone, some people do. Joanne will be flying in on Thursday, but I might fly in on Wednesday because I hate feeling rushed to get somewhere. Depending when you are planning to fly we might be able to fly together. I hope I'm not boring you with all my gibber jabber about the conference. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and home number 469-675-0656 cell 972-849-6393 Please call or email me so we can arrange a playdate with the kids or just to talk. Diana
We too have a recent diagnosis...January 24th 2008 to be exact. I am sorry that we are connected by this, but I am glad we have this site to support one another...if you want to talk, feel free to drop me a line.
