498th 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

  • Kirtsy'd Pick O' the Day: Please vote for this one from Mindful Meanderings. The difference in mindset that the author finds from her years of trying to her conceive to her current path of adoption. Removing the "if" from her life. How do you vote? Simply by clicking on the words "this one" above and then clicking on the post's title. Why the Kirtsy'd Pick O' the Day? Click on that link in the header navigation bar above for the story. And send me stuff!
  • Giveaway: Life According to Leah has a great giveaway going on at her blog. If you want to win a Flip Video, all you need to do is stop by her blog and leave a comment.
  • Daily Update: There are currently 155 participants on the Creme de la Creme 2009 list.
  • Forums: If you are not a member of the forums, you will not have access to the LFCA on days when we are utilizing an open thread in the forums instead of posting on this site. Any blog reader or writer can become a member of the forums by clicking here and registering. On days when we don't have the LFCA, it also follows that I'll be slow on approving new members (that whole lack of Internet access thing) so please be patient.

just wanted to be the first to offer EARLY congratulations on the upcming 500th LFCA! I'll be out offline for a few days (the horror!) and I didn't want to miss it.

on another note, my 27yo newlywed niece is suffering a miscarriage at 10 weeks after a much wanted yet surprise pregnancy. I'm grateful to be there for her, but I only wish she had the support offered here in these pages.

you are AMAZING.
