I know a fairly large number of women in this group including my best friend. A short version about me is that we have been infertile for five years and have attempted IVF and are now proceeding with Adoption. We are potentially matched with a young girl. At this point if things continue then we may be parents in the next few months. I am posting here because I know some
of the social group here but are due date is actually in July. So I thought I might just post a little mini introduction and then lurk in the background for a little bit so in case we do end up becoming parents in couple of weeks I will already have a group of girls as a support network. I've wanted it to be in a DDC since I came to JM back in 2006 and infertility has kind of robbed that experience from me. Lurking in the past has been what I've done but this may be the closest I ever get to joining an actual group

I'm going to cross post this in July because her due date is actually in July and I may just lurking both groups for little bit. Thanks you guys!

We are most definitely glad to have you Lauren! Welcome! (I remember you from back in the day on WTTC).

So pleased to hear you have a potential match already sweetie and we will be here for you on your journey, no matter what. There are several ladies here straddling July and August so you are not alone!

In case you don't remember me, I'm Sharron, 36, and mummy to Daniel aged 5 from the UK. When I knew you on WTTC I was still with my ex, Daniel's daddy. Then I had a break because we split up and I had no idea if or when I would ever TTC again. I'm now with my soulmate and pregnant with #2.

WOOOOHOOO! I'm sooo excited to see you posting in a DDC and even more excited to see you posting in a DDC WITH ME!!!

I met Lauren on WTTC back in 06 and we bonded over twilight... she lives several states away from me but we met up and flew to Seattle and went to Forks with our husbands! She came to my wedding, I've been to her house, we have flown back and forth hanging out (including a second trip to Forks just this past March!) and she's my best friend. Its amazing the friendships that can be created and maintained thanks to JM.

So I can't tell ya'll how excited I am that she and her husband will FINALLY be parents and my whole family is praying t hat this works out best for everyone involved!

here are some pics of us over the years, just for fun





her with Tiny Lily:




and last month Lauren saved me from near death when my pregnant arse nearly rolled backwards down this cliff:
