Hi Virginia,
Happy to see you have joined Polio Today! This is a wonderful site where we can all learn and get to know each other. I look forward to getting to know my new "friend"!

Dear Virginia, So happy you joined poliotoday! I know you haven't been able to get to the meetings, but now with your photo we can see what a great smile you have! May 2010 be your best year yet. We're all getting better at being who we are, even if our bodies aren't keeping up! (But we're learning better each day how to manage!) Wishing you joy in the new year, and success in meeting every challenge. - Judy
