620th 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.

  • Organization's Program: MyDestinationFamily writes: "So what exactly is embryo donation? Because embryo donation can be a challenge for some to understand, we’re offering you the opportunity to ask your embryo donation questions AND get a personalized video answer straight from RESOLVE’s Executive Director Barb Collura. Please fill out the form to participate in our “So what exactly is embryo donation?” Q&A video project. A select number of questions will be chosen for personalized video responses, which will be posted on RESOLVE’s YouTube channel, and across RESOLVE’s Twitter and Facebook pages."
