Wednesday'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 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

  • Today is the anniversary of the Lost and Found as you know it now. See Birthdays and Anniversaries...
  • Bridges continues to post daily. Click over to read a post about addiction by Cecily of Uppercase Woman.
  • Connection: Searching for the Right Path is looking to connect with others pursuing domestic adoption.
  • The IComLeavWe list for August is up. Join in the conversation--it's a week of increased comments and commenting (and hopefully picking up a few new permanent readers along the way). If you still have up the old icon for July, please take it down (the red one).
  • 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!
NEW BLOGS (started in July or August 2008)
  • None Today.
BIRTHDAYS AND ANNIVERSARIES (celebrate your birthday or blogoversary with the community. Send me date at any point and I'll post them on the correct day)
  • Lost and Found moved into its current space (this url) on Wednesday the 13th. That's when the LFCA began looking as it does now. Travel back through time with this first post from the current site. We published 224 editons of the LFCA here this year.

  • This Friday, Jen will be remembering her first loss. Please go give her a hug.
  • None Today.
MISCELLANEOUS SUPPORT AND CELEBRATIONS (scary scans, anxious waits, OHSS, and a host of other reasons why these bloggers could use some additional support right now. Also, celebratory retrievals, transfers, and other good news)
  • Natalie could use some extra love this week.
  • In Due Time's mother is having surgery this morning. She could do with some prayers and hugs.
  • Kel over at Over my Ovaries, could use some support. She's been trying to get past first base in the foster to adopt world for some time now. Her experience is entirely frustrating, and she could use some love and support.
  • Thinking Miracles needs some extra love today.
BEDREST BABES: on bedrest following infertility or loss and needing support. Drop in on them and keep them company.
  • Ashleigh's platelet count is improving. While they need it to be at 100,000 in order to let her go home, she is already at 27,000 and climbing.
  • There's Hope is pregnant with excellent betas.
