Let me rephrase my request please. What i am doing is a high school report and my teacher told me to ask parents who have children with CF to tell me what they would say to other couples if they asked them. I do not know anyone with CF so this is my only hope of passing this report so please i really need some people to reply but if this is still against the rules then i am sorry for being a burden.
Thank you,

It is okay if people want to post their experience with children with CF in this thread.

Dear Whitney,

Hi, perhaps I can be of some help to you.

I would like to see if you can be a bit more specific here. Perhaps, if a couple was thinking about having a child and possibly having CF? Let me answer this one.

There is a 1 in 4 chance that both parents can concieve a child or children (in my case twins) having cystic fibroisis. In my case, I have 3 children. My first girl born did not have CF. My twins born 10 yrs later did have CF. I am a carrier, my husband is a carrier, my daughter is a carrier, her daughter is a carrier. But does this mean that everyone who is a carrier will concieve with their spouse a CF child? the answer would be no.

I hope this helps some and if you need further assistance, I'd be happy to help.

My own personal quote:  If there is a CURE for CF this very moment and "this is not soon enough"!!!!....you would here this twin mom across "AMERICA"...."YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS"!!!
