550th 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: None Today.
  • Blog Change: A Mama 2 Twins (the blogger formerly known as My M.irac.le Mult.iples) writes: "Due to some unwanted attention from people in real life, I am moving on. There will be no further posts at Mot.hering M.y Mirac.le Mult.iples and I am not leaving forwarding info on that page. Followers can find me here or email me at amama2twins at gmail dot com. It is not anyone in the blogosphere, it is the actual real life idiots where I live that I don't want to find the blog. You would think after almost 5 years of blogging I wouldn't have to do this...... sad...just too damn sad......"
