I just wanted to thank you for all the help and support you have given me with regards to my daughter in the last week. You have offered some good advice and information. I would also like to thank you for also taking the time to ask how I am as not many people think to ask about me. You made it very easy for me to talk to you and I really appreciate that. Take care and keep up the good work you do.
