Calm Amongst the Chaos

Mama of 5 seeking calm in the chaos

I found out I was pregnant December 2001 and shortly after those two lines were pink I found myself all over the internet. I didn’t know the first thing about why my boobs hurt, why I was crying at a drop of a hat and the next minute attempting a drop kick to Andrew and I found an August 2002 expecting club on Ivillage and joined there I got my questions answers and sometimes just an offer for a virtual frypan to hit Andrew with if needed. Cut to 9 years later, I still go on that board daily (we’ve moved our meeting place, but you get my point). Yes people will say I don’t really “know” these people, but I beg to differ. I’ve shared with these ladies more sometimes than I am willing to share out loud. We have seen so much together and the fact that so many of us are still coming to that board daily for 9 years says something. I’ve met a few lovely ladies in the real world and love being a part of this group. And right now we have a tragedy going on and I am asking for prayers for a very special little guy named Collin. He has an awful disease called NMO that he has been bravely fighting for years now and right now he is very sick.

His amazing parents have moved mountains to make this little boy comfortable and receiving the best care possible and right now they are praying that God’s will be done. I think we all are praying for a miracle and we know God is able, but we pray his will be done.
Please join me in storming the heavens with prayers for this amazing family.

    “That board is how I met you” I was on the August 2003 playgroup. I am not so active on that board any more, but I have met most of them. We have had reunions and even started a facebook page to keep up. Sorry to hear about Collin will give some prayers up.
