THANK YOU, Rick!!  Thank you for all your hard work and for putting up with all the raging hormones.  icon_wink.gif


You have given many of us a voice when we felt we had none, and you've given us friends when we felt all alone.  I could go on and on ... you've helped some of us more than you will probably ever know.  


And most of all, you've been a great example of how to create the change we want to see ... instead of just sitting around and complaining (although that can be fun too.)


Philip - Welcome, and thanks for taking over!

I know you don't own this site any longer, as I just came across this post. I have been a lurker for quite a few years and I just recently started posting thoughts here on this site. I just wanted to say thankyou for creating a place where I have been visiting for the longest while. A place for us all and will continue to be that special place where we all turn too , to feel connected to others struggling with infertility. Take care
