Farewell and best wishes

I've been informed that, due to lack of interest, this board will close next week.

I've been part of an iVillage child-free-by-choice board for ... gosh ... has it been almost 10 years? Maybe more? I started on the CFBC board that originally was part of the health channel, and then we merged with another CFBC board to form this one. It's been a pleasure and an honor to meet so many strong people through this board. I don't encounter a lot of CFBCers in my offline life. I know I'm not alone in my decision, but it's still been nice to reaffirm it with likeminded people here. I'm lucky not to have parents and in-laws who nag me to procreate; coming to this board reminds me in that respect how lucky I am not to have to deal with that pressure. (My thoughts go out to those of you who do. Hang in there!)

I'd like to think our board has been quiet in the past months because we're busy living full, vibrant lives filled with our own choices. I hope that continues to be the case for each of you.

Thank you for sharing your stories. Thank you for sharing your strength. I wish all of you the best as you live your lives on your own terms.

Take care.
