Hi.

(I am a preschool teacher with a brood of 14 3 and 4 year olds, teaching at a sustainable preschool inspired by elements of Reggio and Waldorf philosophies. I love working with children but more than anything I want to have children. I have recently received a shock that my fertility or ability to carry a baby to term is in question--best case scenario is that I am able to resolve this situation with inpatient surgery pending MRI and ultrasound results. )

I am not a mama but with every fiber of my being want to be. I also find reading this site helps me as a teacher--lots of fabulous insight. Am I welcome?

If so... anyone from Missoula...?

And perhaps everything sounds cart before the horse but I am single, 23, and would love to hear thoughts about how to best find a forever person outside of the bar scene and online dating and casual dating and all the things that I have been doing thus far.

whoa. a lot to put out there.

thank you

Yes you are very welcome here. I am aware of several not mothers yet that are here on the boards. I believe they even have a group under the tribes area called not mamas yet.
