I hope that some remember me as a former CL of this Board. I served as CL through 2 years of disappointments, 16 months with a Reproductive Endocrinologist, 4 months of Clomid treatments, a lot of soul searching and finally a successful pregnancy. I stepped down as CL with about 3 months to go before delivering a son (Nov/08) and I stayed around for quite a long time after he was delivered. I was replaced by Krista (eli2005), who served through her own disappointments, treatments and eventually DEs giving her twins.
We both endured a lot to conceive our children, and what is expected afterwards is that we get to enjoy them with our DHs. Sadly, this is not the case for Krista. Her husband died very suddenly this month, and she is absolutely devastated. Krista has a 6 yr old son and twins that are 15 months. She is alone now. She is not getting enough help from family and she really need support and assistance.
Some women from the TTC >40 Facebook Group, the iVillage DE Group and otherwise have started a fund to help Krista however we can. It has been decided that we will use whatever monies we can collect to arrange some assistance at home for Krista, and her kids.
If you remember Krista or feel inclined, please contact me and I will give you more information about the situation and the funds we are collecting.
I ask all of you to have some P&PT for her and her kids as they adjust to this enormous loss.
Best wishes to you all!
Mom to Juliana (12), Teagan (6) and Sawyer (3)
