mamacats -- First of all, thank you for discussing my thoughts on this so kindly and respectfully. This is a tender place I'm in, the double whammy of loss and TTC emotions. It really hit me hard when I realized what was going on here, in the only space where I really talk about and process this journey. I felt really violated by this person's actions, and actually shed a few angry tears, the first in a long time.

I agree that a "donate" button isn't by itself offensive or commercial; blogs do cost money to publish. She goes far beyond that button. If you click through her "get a reading" and "ttc package" links, you see that a basic communication with your spirit baby costs $25 and an "in depth" reading is $250. Her TTC package is $150. This is a business, not just a ministry.

I will move away from this thread, because I needed to stand up for myself and others who may also find this tactic offensive, but I don't want to argue in a negative way with those who may be happy with the thread.

If it were me, and if I truly just wanted to share thoughts for these women's lost babies, I would have just started the spirit baby thread and started on that discussion. I think it could have been very positive and healing without all the cross-posting and commercial content. Hopefully, the positive elements will continue and help your peace grow.

M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2000. DS #1 -- March 2001. DS #2 -- November 2002. (Ten year break!) DD -- October 2011. M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2013. Expecting #4 late July.

Of course my dear! Time is too short to be unkind flowersforyou.gif . Aaaahhh, see, I didn't click through all that, just zeroed in on what attracted my attention as Spirit Babies are so fascinating to me, ever since I read Peggy Vincent's Baby Catcher years ago. I saw those things but wasn't drawn there; didn't want a reading since I read for myself and not really interested in any kind of TTC package.

I am so sorry this brought you to such an emotional place and I truly felt your words when I read them. I agree wholeheartedly with you on how I, personally, would go about discussing the topic. Even if this was a faux pas on the OP's part, out of kindness, love, and respect, it would be the right thing to do to acknowledge that some of us were hurt by the way it was executed. I will step away too as now it just seems like a more neutral thread would be best and I definitely don't want to see anyone hurt. Yet more of those lessons in life we take with us, these experiences and what they hit in each of us. I will see you on the boards though! Hopefully we won't be TTC for much longer and our Rainbows are right around the corner dust.gif .

I'm sorry to everyone who suffered a loss...I don't feel like KateST is spamming or trying to profit off of anyone....She was honest and forthcoming from the beginning....Different people believe and need different things....for me it touch my soul and helped me relax and enjoy the process instead of being anxious all day...which we know doesn't help...We are all hormonal around here...which is expected its a TTC board but I think that we should all remember that and take the good and leave whatever is not applicable to the side.

KateST. I removed the link in your signature and a paragraph in your first post as they are both violations of our advertising guidelines. You offer a service for a fee, which you say is not your point in posting as you are. So to avoid self promotion you should avoid discussing such services or linking to your website. Sharing your "TTC info" as you are doing in your posts is acceptable and can continue as long as you avoid linking to your site and promoting your services. If you have any questions you may PM me. :)

Dear Sisters, The energy this thread has taken on is not an energy I wish to be in. I've asked Cynthia to please delete this thread.  For those who I was able to connect with briefly, I truly appreciate you and wish you all the best. For those who have taken offense to me for any reason, I realize there was an energetic exchange going on that has served us each in some way, no matter how uncomfortably. Maybe your anger at me was a way to start healing your grief. And perhaps my hurt and disappointment in your reaction was just a mirror being held up to my face so I can heal my own wounds. I thank you and wish you all the best as well. 

 

I do feel I was "supposed" to come here for a reason.

I feel now that I'm supposed to leave. 

 

If we are to meet again, we will. Good luck to each of you on your journey toward your Spirit Baby. ♥

When members take the time to post their feelings, thoughts and opinions to further a discussion that has been started it is not appropriate for me to delete their contributions without a very compelling reason to do so. The thread will remain and the invitation to you, KateSt,, to continue your thread stands as well. Obviously many who posted to the thread enjoyed your input and feel they benefit from what you have to offer. :)
