...consider that becoming a mom can be as tough or tougher. That's what Melissa Ford has been blogging about for quite a while. I haven't had much time to do anything exciting this week, but I've reading about what she's up to and, well it's a lot. When Gboy and I were waiting (not so patiently) to get pregnant, I stumbled upon her webpage and found lots of support and kind words there. She's an amazing connector. She facilitates a compassionate and welcoming community of men and women from all different walks of life struggling to create their family in whatever way makes sense for them. She's an advocate. She's an amazing writer who is funny and thoughtful and provocative and sensitive and about a million other things. She's got a lot on her plate these days and I'd like to help spread the word.
First there's her blog, it's been nominate for a 2009 Weblog Award. Please consider stopping by and voting for her if you haven't already. I'm guessing she supports thousands of people who have experienced pregnancy loss(es), infertility, the pain of a failed adoption, and those still anxiously waiting for their families to grow.
Second there's her book. It's due to be released in June 2009. Feel free to pre-order it today for yourself or someone you care about.
Finally, if you haven't seen her webpage, just pop on over for a visit for a wealth of information and links to other cool blogs to check out. She's in the midst of publishing the Creme de la Creme - the best posts from 2008 for infertility, loss, and adoption blogs. You won't believe the kind of stuff you can find there!
