Thursday'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.

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.

Connections Abound

  • D.C. Bloggers get together is set for September 23 (all are welcome--bloggers, readers, and lurkers). Read more about it at Looking for 2 Lines.
  • Wish you had a Common Thread bracelet so you could have this identifying marker of community member? D Marie at Bella Vida has graciously offered 100 free bracelets to the first takers. Head over to her blog to learn more--especially how you can spread the word about Infertility's Common Thread. A simple idea from D Marie: add a link to the original post in your email signature that you use on bulletin boards to get the word out there.
NEW BLOGS (started in July or August of 2007)
  • Candy's Land (this is the new location of the old blog, Candy's Land--parenting after adoption)
  • Baby Steps (this is also a new location of an old blog--family building while single)
BIRTHDAYS, ANNIVERSARIES, and BLOGOVERSARIES: Celebrate your birthday or blogoversary with the community. Send me dates in advance and I'll post them on the correct day.
  • None today.
  • Beka at More Love to Thee recently experienced her second loss and a D&E. Please go over to give her support.
MISCELLANEOUS SUPPORT:Bed rest, scary scans, OHSS, and a host of other reasons why these bloggers could use some additional support right now. Also, celebrations!
  • Sarah is making some decisions for IVF #5. Even if you can't weigh in with information, please go over and sit with her while she makes the decision. Let her know that a SQ or SPJ has her back.
  • Brenda just transferred two embryos and is waiting to hear back on her other three. Go over and wish her luck on this cycle.
  • Paper Pregnant just got pre-approval from the embassy to bring Lily home from Guatemala. They are one step closer to bringing their children home.
  • None today.

Would Southeastern Michigan area IF bloggers be interested in a sort of meet-up? I've been thinking that might be a good idea.

Along the same lines...any Denver-area bloggers wanting to get together?
