I am writing this post not directed personally to anyone, rather it is a general post for all including myself. If you feel upset by this post, then I would strongly advise you to look within your heart and evaluate the reasons why you are upset. I would also strongly advise you to evaluate the reasons you are on this board.

This is suppose to be a safe place for women to unite under a common thread of hope to find shelter and comfort during an already difficult journey of TTC. This is a place to form new bonds and friendship created with the common hope of one day conceiving a much desired child. A child that we have all either individually or with other people prayed and begged for help during this difficult journey. A place where women of different nationalities, religions, colors, and ages come together to not only find but offer comfort, knowledge, advice, love, and support to each other during this journey of TTC. This journey is too painful and difficult; to full of ups and downs; overgrown with trials and tribulations to cause pain, distress, or emotionally wound another woman with our words and actions. We need to be extremely mindful of the women around us, and of their situations. If you don’t know, ask. I know each woman here well enough to say that if they want to share their story with you, they will. If they so desire not to share that story they will let you know politely that they have chosen not to share that intimate part of their lives; and that is ok too.

Please, please, please… if this is not the board for you then I hope and pray to God that you will find one that fits your needs and desires. I also pray that you will find what you are looking for emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. If you are TTC, then I also pray that you get that wonderful blessing that God so longs to bless you with, and that you have a wonderful and blessing filled pregnancy.

If this is the board for you, then I ask this of you. Please, please, please be courteous to the other women on this board. Be mindful of where they are in their TTC journey. Do not be rude, insensitive, condescending, demeaning, or hateful to other women on this board. This needs to be a safe place to find shelter, comfort, love, and support and also to provide these things for all the women on this board. This needs to be a place where we can build those friendships and create bonds that will last a life time, far beyond the journey of TTC.

I pray that all the women here get their BFP really soon, and have a wonderfully blessed pregnancy. I know that God will bless each and every one of us with those precious bundles of joy that our hearts so desire. I also pray that we all create friendships and bonds that last the rest of our lives, and enjoy each others company during this process.

I care about each and every one of the ladies on this board. I am honored and blessed to have met each and every one of you. God has truly given me amazing gifts during this TTC journey of mine, when He blessed me with each and every one of your friendships. Love you all.

Thanks, Raina! This is a good reminder for me and for all of us. Do you think you could make a sticky for this so all new people can know what we're about too?

Thanks for the encouraging words Raina!
I know I am a newbie, but I feel like this forum has a bunch of great ladies with every kind of TTC journey. I feel I can share things here that I would never share even with my closest 'real life' friends.

Also I don't like it when peoples' feeling are hurt or someones' feelings are demeaned, so often I will speak up, which doesn't always make the situation better. Something I need to work on...really...ok I have been saying that for years...

Very well articulated. I don't think anyone who is here for the right reason would have a reason to be offended by the way you worded that. It's something we all do need to be mindful of. Thanks.

I'm with Susan, still a newbie. And it's nice to be reminded every once in a while that everyone's situations are different and we are all battling different things. I am so glad that I've gotten to know you ladies throughout my experience thus far. Hoping to continue these friendships after all this. Thank you for the encouraging words Raina.
