While the Rubin family story is interesting because it covers so many elements of the problem (contractors breaking the law, abatement contractors not doing their job, children inhaling fumes (not eating paint chips), a middle-class family that was completely uneducated about lead poisoning before this happened to their family).... there are so many other stories out there that are equally compelling. 

There are also many parents of children that were lead poisoned long ago who have amazing words and insights to share. 

I am still working on how to structure this website to give equal time to all of the stories I want to share with you - if you have a suggestion on how to organize it better, please let me know. In the meantime I have asked other parents and advocates to contribute some words to my site and I will be posting their stories here. If you have a story you would like to add, please contact me leadsafe@mac.com
