790th 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.

  • Project: Lori Lavender Luz writes, "It's the last Monday of the month! August 26 kicks of a week of noticing Perfect Moments for the Perfect Moment Monday bloghop (doesn't have to be a Monday to post). Get in the habit of noticing moments that have even a speck of perfection in them, and you'll soon discover the power awareness can have in your life. ""With awareness, one could have a perfect moment shackled in a dungeon sitting in one’s own excrement; without it, blessings galore cannot compensate."" Write up your Perfect Moment post and link up between August 26 and September 2. Give and receive support with a community of bloggers who are in the habit of noticing perfect moments and thus receiving more and more of them."

  • Endo_Life writes, "Arriving 9 weeks and one day early my beautiful daughter was born on August 14th. Spending a week in the NICU and now in HDU she is doing well. Any prayers positive thought would be appreciated as she spends possibly another 8 weeks in the hospital. Can't wait to get her home with us but she is currently exactly where she needs to be even if it kills us to leave her behind."
