Awww, you made me cry. How I remember going through all of those things with you; shedding tears right along with you. Back then, there were less "online" worlds like facebook and blogs and this forum was a life line to many. I still believe it's a unique forum where you can get the facts, encouragement and support from people who truly understand all in one stop. I think about you and your family often and hope all is well!

I'd like to echo your sentiments...after the loss of my baby Elissa, I spent hours every night reading as many old posts as I could, trying to absorb it all. It would be nice if all the mommies could find time to come back after their pregnancies and offer support and wisdom. But having an 8-month old at home, I know it can be very hard sometimes.

Seems like sooo few of the old posters are still here, I feel sooo bad I hardly ever get on def not as much as I used to but I keep thinking about what a lifesaver this board was through some of the hardest time of my life.

You guys were my main support after losing Sebastian and going through Sebanna's pregnancy (I still remember after I got hosplized on bedrest with Sebanna one of the wonderful ladfies here tracked down my info and I actually got a call in my hospital room) than my absolute lifeline when Sebanna died of Whooping Cough. I remember spending hours here pouring out my heart, asking questions, being angry and not understanding, I sat by this computer and sobbed to the most supportive people (you guys) when I had no one, sometimes I needed gentle words and sometimes I needed a firm kick in the butt and you guys supported me every step, I got cards and encouragement and the faith that I would survive, seriously without this board I am not sure I would have lived through Sebanna's death.

Just want you to know this board changed my life and I have never forgotten nor will I. The Preeclampsia Foundation will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart.
