    I feel soo silly writing this post.
    I am not a mom yet, but I have a breeder holding a baby
    for me. OK here is my problem...
    I am 20 and a BIRD LOVER, my fiancee' and I are NOT having
    children (b/c I have a neuromuscular disease and in a
    wheelchair) and I want something to love and to love me
    back. I am home ALL the time and plan to work from home
    but I will be returning to school in the fall (for no more
    than 3 hours a day). I have been researching, reading and
    asking numerous owners/breeders on advice.
    I was recently on a website that was almost telling me not
    to get my umbrella and I saw HORRIBLE pictures and I am
    not reconsidering getting my baby, I am just SOOO nervous
    that I will do something to my baby to hurt it
    psychologically! I am desperate for some insight on how I
    can overcome this brain violation from this weirdo who is
    the ONLY one on the net who has said all these things. But
    the worst part is that there are people that agree with
    this person and REGRET getting their Cockatoos!
    Well, anyway, I just hope someone can help and just
    reassure my heart and head, b/c I don't want to be a bad
    mom!
    Thanks so much!!!
    -Leigh
