Good day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very important to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my private email(a.pierre63@yahoo.com) if you dont mind ?
Have a nice day and God bless you,
pierre

Thanks, Elizabeth. It would be tough, I guess, to find hard data re longitudinal research, bec this trend toward children NOT in nature is a phenomenon mostly within one generation, which has not come fully into adulthood. It seems common sense. Thanks for the link to C&NN research!

Hey Elizabeth,
My business name is From the Ground Up. Website is
www.designfromthegroundup.com
Check in on Sunday and it should be updated with pictures from our pilot project!
Thanks. I love having this forum to share with others, especially since I couldn't make it to the Grassroots gathering.

Yes Yes -- of course we want to include title, org/agency/bio. I'll have the elves work on the site tonight and send a notice to all asking for additional profile info.
