Well ladies... I really didn't want to have to do this. But I know it's the right thing to do for the board. I'm going to be stepping down as your co-host. It makes me so incredibly sad, but I know I'm not able to do the job anymore. I'm just too busy, and with going back to work full time on the horizon... I know my time is going to be even more restricted.

I need you all to know how much this board has meant to me. I know in my heart that I NEVER would have made it this far, I wouldn't be a mommy right now, if it weren't for the love and support that I have gotten here over the years. Becoming one of the co-hosts was a complete honor and I was so thrilled to finally be able to give back to this place that has gotten me through the toughest times in my life. I will never forget or be able to repay you all for that.

I'm sorry towards the end that I wasn't around as often as I should have been, but it was a big indicator to me that my time here has come to an end. (At least as a host! ) I won't be going anywhere. TTC w/ MA is my HOME! I will still be here... as often as I possibly can, but you ladies deserve to have someone that has more time to commit to making your journey as easy and pain-free as possible.

Thank you all for this wonderful opportunity... it has truly changed my life!

PS... I'm going to try and figure out what will happen with SOTW. I'll see if Lindsey will keep it going but if not, hopefully we can figure out a way to make sure it still happens.

kari you have been one of the best hosts that i've known... always with a kind word to offer or a phrase of encouragment. you've done yourself proud! you have so much to juggle right now that it amazed me that you were attempting to do it all and still host. while i'm sad to see you go as a host i know that it's the right thing for you right now and i'm glad to hear that you will still post when you can. KUP on ella and your little one on the way!

Sad news!!! But I totally understand. There's a special place for all of us here in TTCMA, but the wonderful news is that it's not permanent! You have been an extraordinary hostess, but your focus should now be on your Ella and new baby. We totally understand and support your decision. BUT, you MUST check in on us from time to time. I for one, expect your cheers when I announce my BFP in a few days!

You are so much more than just a good host here on JM... You are a special person. I never told you this, but during one of the darkest times of my TTC journey you made a huge impact in my life. Don't feel like going into details, but out of no where you were my angel sent to help my aching heart.

Take good care of you and enjoy those babies. xoxoxoxo

Thank you ladies so much. You have certainly made this tough process a bit easier.

I'm definitely not gonna disappear. I love it too much around here. Seeing the BFP's from this group makes me smile on a daily basis.

And yes Lindsey... I'll be here bouncing off the walls with enjoyment when I get to see that announcement!!!

I know I am really new here.. but I lurked here long before I came out & introduced myself and I felt like you were one of the girls I really "got to know" as silly as that may sound. You are such an amazing woman and mommy! I'm so sad to see you go as co-host but can see how it is the right thing for you at this time. Baby Ella and baby #2 need their mommy
