Hi there! I posted here about 14 months ago when we were trying to decide if we were going to do IVF... but am now more of a lurker, keeping tabs on a few of you luvly ladies!!

I was just wondering if Brandi has had her little girl yet? I've noticed she doesn't post here much anymore?

The last I heard she left JM because there was some more drama going on with people questioning her failed adoption.

That really sucks - so unfair. Would love an update when Ally arrives as I'm not friends with her on facebook.

I lost my first bubba in the same way she lost her twins, so have always kept tabs on her, hoping and praying she would have a healthy little baby in her arms soon

I've been checking her blog. Ally should be here any day. It's such a shame that people couldn't keep their nasty comments to themselves and leave her alone. She's been through enough!

Its a shame about her feeling that she had to leave, but I understand. I have been following her blog and am excited to see Aaliyah make her debut any day now. I think she still lurks here sometimes, and I am sure she will be thrilled to know that so many of us are still rooting for her!

I really really hate that she left. I understand why she did it and I probably would have done the same. She was soooo helpful and encouraging to me when I first started posting here. I do read her blog but didn't realize she had a fb page.

I did not know Brandi, but it seems sad that there was a bad reason for her to leave. I was not here at that time, but it seems she was unfairly treated. Some people are such a**holes.

I'm a lurker here too. She was on this board when I first arrived. I come to check in on her every now and then. So happy to hear she is due any day now. My T&P are with her and can't wait for her to hold her beautiful baby girl in her arms.

She mostly posts in the Sept 10 PR I believe. She's on FB and Allie should be here by the end of the week.
