783rd 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

  • Book Giveaway: Been wanting to read Lori Holden's newly released adoption guide, The Open-Hearted Way to Open Adoption? (Also appropriate for those in adoptions without contact, such as foster and international situations, and those who went the donor gamete route). Head over to for a giveaway of this hardback book you'll refer to for years to come.
  • New Therapy/Fundraising: a scientist sent me a link to this indigogo campaign to raise funds for their infertility/loss research.  The scientist used her own experience with recurrent loss as a focus for treating infertility.
  • 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.
  • Quicklink Resources: Regular ALI Blogroll: If you would like your blog added to the ALI blogroll, please email me directly with your blog url and category pick.
