Monday's Connections Abound

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The Lost and Found page is permanently located beneath this current post. Old Connections Abound can be accessed via the date or subject archives listed on the sidebar. Check the submissions page, FAQ, and ways to get involved for additional information. Email me at with any questions/concerns.

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.

Connections Abound


  • Do you live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida? Farah at Fertilize Me is forming a Tampa Bay Bloggers group for face-to-face get togethers. Contact her at if interested.
  • Congratulations to the winners of the IIFF: Seasons by Scott and Michele P won the Audience Choice Award. Spring by Vee and Max won the Lucky Dip Prize. Mother Earth's Flower Shop by Mel and Josh won the Jury Prize. The next IIFF screening will be October 27th and has a Halloween theme. Click here for more details and to enter.
  • Did you miss the Oprah episode where Jenna spoke about infertility and loss? In the great tradition of Beagle's traveling book, Jenna is willing to send out a disc of Oprah's show as well as some extra behind the scenes footage. The disc will pass from blogger to blogger in a similar vein to Beagle's traveling book. If you are interested in seeing this episode or if you've seen the episode but want to see the behind-the-scenes After Show, email Jenna at and she'll put you on the list and explain how the traveling disc works.
NEW BLOGS (started in July or August of 2007)
  • Don't go through a loss alone. The purpose of community it to be there for you in both good times and bad. Email me ( or leave a comment below to add to this section. Make sure you include your blog's url so people can come and support you.
MISCELLANEOUS SUPPORT:Bed rest, scary scans, OHSS, and a host of other reasons why these bloggers could use some additional support right now.
  • I'd love some support right about now. Now that IVF is unavoidable, it is getting far less amusing to contemplate. I'm feeling like crap, quite frankly, that my baby died and technology is required for round two. Go over and give Geohde some support at Mission: Impossible.
  • Mrs. B at Empty Womb Syndrome is having a terrible day and could use some extra support. You can find her at Empty Womb Syndrome.

Great summary - do you have a javascript of the illustration and pointer to this site? My side bar is a bit fussy and requires HTML code.
