623rd Issue of the LFCA

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The point of Lost and Found is to level the support playing field. When LFCA works correctly, the newest blogger with the smallest readership can receive the same level of support as the oldest blogger with the largest readership. Anyone can submit news to LFCA by clicking here.

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

  • Lost Blogger: a blogger asks, "Does anyone know how to get in touch with Gwendomama? My blog reader says it's been 4 weeks since Gwendomama last updated, and when I tried to go to her blog, it appears that the password has changed. I am worried about her!" Leave a note in the comment section below.
  • Question: April had a scare on Saturday with some bleeding. They believe it was from her pelvic and pap smear done the day before. Was curious if anyone else has had a P&P done while pregnant and had bleeding afterwards.
  • Fundraiser: Lisa has created an adoption fundraiser. They received their referral last week after over 3 years of waiting.
  • First Time Reading the LFCA: If this is your first time reading the LFCA or you need a refresher about how the LFCA works, please read this post. It has everything you need to know about getting your news in the LFCA.
