814th Issue of the LFCA

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The point of Lost and Found is to level the support playing field. When LFCA works correctly, the newest blogger with the smallest readership can receive the same level of support as the oldest blogger with the largest readership. Anyone can submit news to LFCA by clicking here.

Lost and Found is open to anyone in the
infertility, pregnancy loss, adoption, pregnancy-and-parenting after infertility, assisted conception, living child-free after infertility or loss community (as well as anyone I inadvertently missed on that list). Please support the list as well as anyone posting announcements below.

After living for 8 hours, her precious Kallan Jay got his angels wings. There is a collection being taken at http://www.nurselovesfarmer.com/2014/06/baby-kallan/. We're hoping to earn enough money so Deanna and her husband can buy memorial rings.
