Welcome Lucy, 
So happy to have someone just wanting to be asked a question!  My husband and I are raising our son Paul, he also has LCA with some very limited vision, &  who will be three in august.  He was attempting to ride a tricycle for the first time over the weekend and we would like to make riding bikes a frequent family outing.  Would you recommend a pull behind cart for riding on the roads?  We may be able to borrow one to try before we commit.  We live in a very small community that is very bike friendly although the traffic can get bad this time of year. Paul is fiercely independent and will hop out of his wagon in motion so he can push it his self, and was more interested in pushing the trike over the weekend then he was in attempting to learn how to power it with his feet using the pedals.  Any pointers or advice will be much appreciated :-)

Hi all,

  I'm Lucy Sirianni, a new member of this group.  A few of you may recognize my name from other listservs, but for those who don't know me, let me briefly introduce myself.  I'm a doctoral student who has been totally blind since birth due to Leber's Congenital Amaurosis.  After growing up in Minnesota, where I homeschooled along with my three younger (sighted) siblings, I did my undergraduate work at Johns Hopkins, majoring in English, and I'm now working toward my Ph.D.  in English at Berkeley, preparing to become a literature professor once I've finished the program.  I'm always happy to be a resource for parents raising blind children and will be glad to do my best to answer any questions any of you may have, either on the list or privately.

  I'm glad to be here and look forward to future discussions!
