822nd Issue of the LFCA

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The point of Lost and Found is to level the support playing field. When LFCA works correctly, the newest blogger with the smallest readership can receive the same level of support as the oldest blogger with the largest readership. Anyone can submit news to LFCA by clicking here.

Lost and Found is open to anyone in the
infertility, pregnancy loss, adoption, pregnancy-and-parenting after infertility, assisted conception, living child-free after infertility or loss community (as well as anyone I inadvertently missed on that list). Please support the list as well as anyone posting announcements below.

MISCELLANEOUS NEWS

  • Project: Foxy writes: "My friend Amber is creating a postage stamp quilt in memory of the 26,000+ babies born sleeping every year in the USA. Every day she will sew together 72 tiny 1" squares, 71 to represent the number of stillborn babies born daily (no two fabrics will be the same) + 1 to represent hope. If you would like to have a block dedicated to your sweet baby please email amalley@expectedhugs.com. Please include their name, birthday, and anything else you would like me to know. If you are a quilter and would like to contribute to this project (tiny one inch 100% quilting cotton scraps are all I need) please mail scrap fabric to: Expected Hugs, P.O. Box 429 Cool, CA 95614
