Tuesday's Connections Abound

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The Face-to-Face 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 thetowncriers@gmail.com 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.

  • Sorry that I've been so terrible with email: writing/Extravaganzaing/working/making excuses.

  • IComLeavWe began yesterday. Commence commenting galore from now until the 28th. Sign up for August will begin on the 1st if you're too late to join up for July. I'm going to take a cue from Cupcakes and Conundrums and keep track of my first 6 comments each day.
  • Technically, you should have your Roundup Extravaganza blurb in yesterday. I am still adding them so I'm not sure who is late yet in order to bother you with constant, scathing emails :-)
  • Invite Only: Morrisa is going invite only. In order to get an invitation to keep reading, please email her with your first name.
  • If you notice another loading slow down or receive error messages for Stirrup Queens or Lost and Found, please let me know. Now I'm nervous every time I add anything to the side bar!

Hi, Mel!

If you can, can you give an update on Mary? I've been thinking about her all week and am hoping for rising Betas for her...
