Connections Abound

MISCELLANEOUS NEWS
New
  • Shop Mom or Pop is open! This post is a grouping of people who are using their creativity to fund treatments or adoption (current or recently past). Support your fellow stirrup queens and sperm palace jesters by shopping at their stores when you need a gift. Write me to add your business (either currently established or started today) to the listing: the towncriers@gmail.com.
  • Was just told about a great bulletin board. It's essentially Babycenter for those who have gone through IF. So when you're asking for parenting advice, you're getting it from someone else who conceived their child via treatments or through adoption. How cool is that? I signed up and only read the message boards at this point, but I plan on swinging through there more in the future. It's called Baby Steps.
  • Dawn at This Woman's Work has a request for submissions on her blog for an upcoming anthology. She writes: "Who’s Your Mama: The Voices of Unsung Women and Mothers is looking for women writers who are mothers, trying to become mothers and who are childless by choice or circumstance."
