Hi Sabrina: What an interesting background! I remember reading about Kirsten's delivery in Europe and everything that went with it. It's nice to hear more details. When you say Univ of SC do you mean South Carolina?

Have I ever mentioned that I love your avatar? Your children are lovely.

BTW, don't be surprised when we ask you to use your negotiation skills for PF! Thanks for sharing. :)

Well, I'll join in here, but I'm afraid there isn't much that my skills could qualify me to do for the PF. I'm a high school band director, I have a Bachelor of Music degree in Instrumental music education. I play instruments like trumpet, flute and clarinet, and sing in the choir at church (where DH is the choir director). I actually taught middle school band for 8 years before Andrew was born, then was a SAHM for 2 years, now am teaching at a Catholic high school (part time).

I'd love to help in any additional way that I could, if there is anything to offer. I'm enjoying doing the moderator thing and am very interested in increasing awareness, etc for the "cause", if there were ever anything I'm qualified for. [:)]

Ok, update since the other day when I posted...........I wrote this in Parents of Preemies already, but my family was asked to be an Ambassador Family for the March of Dimes in the metro-Charleston SC area for 2006. So, we will be doing public speaking (mostly me and not DH[:I]), press releases, etc. If there is any way that our role in this could somehow be of help for PF, then I'd love to do that. Be thinking about it I guess, and let me know if you come up with anything. I certainly will be mentioning PE in any speeches we do, and stressing the need for research and to eventually find a way to prevent it! [:)]

former pre school teacher and nanny here. I have a ba in psych and an a.s. in early childhood education. I have been "retired" since my son was born. If y'all need help with anything , let me know. I have a lot of free time on my hands.

I have two careers to offer, though I don't know if it will help. One is a mortgage loan officer. I have my real estate license in CA. I'm also a captioner for the hearing impaired/deaf. I'm taking my state test to get my CSR license for court reporting. I don't know what kind of services I would be able to provide but I can type between 200-225 wpm on a stenograph machine.

I'm a freelance journalist and editor based in Toronto. I do news, features, the occasional t.v. spot and quite a bit of travel writing (though these days I'm basically desk-bound). I guess I should pitch a story about pre-e somewhere one of these days. Great articles on the subject do seen to pop up with some regularity (but then I'm always hunting for them), so I wonder where another one would do the most good. Any thoughts on what really needs to be said that hasn't made it on to the public radar?

Anyway, I'd be happy to offer writing/editing services to the PF or just to spread the word in Canada.

Hi Susan-

Welcome to the boards, and thank you for volunteering your time.

I would suggest contacting Eleni, who is the director of communications. I am sure that she can answer your question of what needs to get on "the radar." I know that they were looking for articles to be written for magazines...

Let me know if you have any questions or need help getting in contact with Eleni.
