I was here before the crash, for some time.

 

In the past 10 years I had another child, adopted one and lost 3 babies to miscarriage. I am still a sahm, still homeschool and still AP. My oldest is now almost 18!

I was here under a different name but have been a member for at least 8 yrs.  Will come back tomorrow to post more.  Time to watch a movie.

I know that my 10 year old son was a newborn when I first came to MDC.  I remember having to join twice, so that must have been the crash.  Everything from that time is clouded by that dense firstborn fog. 

 

MDC influenced so much of those baby days:  cloth diapering and our daughter's homebirth were the biggies.  MDC was my lifeline back then.  I didn't find a group of IRL friends who practiced AP until my kids were much older.

Joined before the crash.  Used to be hugely active on here, but this is the first time I've posted in quite awhile.  The boards changed a lot, especially over the past few years, and it just wasn't the same community anymore.

 

My kids are 10 and 7, we're homeschooling, still trying to be AP but the preteen years are more challenging and I don't find much support for alternative parenting.  MDC had a profound impact on my early years as a mother, and I will never forget my time here.

I was here pre-crash, too-under a different username and I can't for the life of me remember that! My daughters are now 11 and 8, we moved across country, my father passed away and my mother moved in with us, and I now homeschool.

I was here pre-crash with a different user name. When MDC first came into being I had a baby and a toddler and then had another baby shortly after.  Now two of those children are teenagers and one will be soon!

I hope that I am here long enough to become a 10-yr member and that MDC is still around.

My original screen name was Carriebeary77. I've been here since early 2001, after my son was born (April 2000), but while I was pregnant w/ my daughter, who was born in October 2001. It was this site that pushed me to homebirth her and UC my youngest.

I'm confused on the time line with the crash... Anyone willing to clarify that for me?

 

Anyway, I left, deleted my account and everything, sometime around 2005, then I got pregnant with my youngest in 2007 and came back. 

 

Through the years, we left our former religion, moved into our first house, and I became a writer.

It came back November of '01.... which is why so many of us have 11/2001 join dates!  I didn't think it was down a full month, but it might have been.

It crashed before 9/11... I remember wishing the site was up when it happened. So, 2-3 months without MDC... Felt like an eternity!

I have been here for almost nine years. It got me through some serious isolation when I moved from suburban chicago to living in the middle of nowhere. MDC was some serious therapy for me and thanks to all the moms that kept me company when I felt so alone!
