And I promise the braces that I can offer you don't hurt-in fact, they are quite comforting.
Not long after we got our male factor diagnosis, I was feeling pretty knocked down. I was slowly getting into blogging, but still felt like I need a little bit more TLC. So, the Braces Bunch was born. You can read about the conception (ha, the only conception that has come easy to me) by going back in time to April 2007 (Link will open in a new window) annnnd the 1st anniversary last year.
The idea: Connecting with bloggers through snail mail--the good old fashioned USPS is our friend. Sending a note, card, letter to a fellow blogger when they need extra TLC, or to celebrate with them.
Here is just a sample of the ahhh-maaa-zinng TLC I have received over the past 2 years...
Over the past 2 years, we've had an fantastic group of women participate in the Braces Bunch-and each year, we re-group to see who needs to rotate out for a variety of reasons. And that means, we would love to invite a new group of snail-mail-junkies to join the Bunch!
Things to know:
- Your info: Don't worry, it's safe. If you want to join, your address and info is protected in an invite-only blog, so Joe Schmoe can't google you.
- Whos Bunchin' It? : If you are starting out on the IF journey, in the thick of treatments, currently carrying, adoptive mothers, parents after IF...etc. I guess I should have just said: all ALI chickies! (adoption, loss, infertility)
- Keeping it real: Please be sure to read the posts I listed above. No exclusion here, since this blogging community is all about connecting. BUT please consider the time you can dedicate to sending out snail-mail before asking me to send you further info. And don't panic-you arent expected to send mail each week! This is just an added bonus to the blogging community we are a part of.
