It is with a sad and yet happy heart that I say goodbye to you, my readers, after 14 wonderful years as the Guide to Doll Collecting at About.com. Early this year I was diagnosed with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. I've had a difficult year which has led me to the very difficult decision to leave About.com to focus on my health. I have loved every minute of being your Guide to Dolls; I'm sure as my health improves I'll see many of you at shows and events in the future. Thank you all so much for sharing the last 14 years of dolls and doll collecting with me! I hope you will continue to read About.com on a daily basis; it is full of passionate Guides who are the very best in their topics!
