We think it's important to live your life as normally as possible and don't let CF hold you back. As soon as you start putting them in a bubble that's when things can change.
When Amber was a baby 13 years ago, the CF nurse told me that people with CF are special. She said she didn’t know if it was due to what they went through or whether it was nature’s way of balancing things out.
My life hasn't taken the usual path but I do live it to the full. I like to think anything is possible.
Tailen was born much smaller than my other 3 children, he didn't feed properly and I was forever changing his nappy.
Pip Stocking's son Hayden has CF. Now Pip is on a mission to help raise awareness of CF among Maori.
My hopes for Tayler are the same as they are for my other children. I want them to live long, happy and healthy lives.
