Hi!
I'm new and this looks like a great site! I hope to get to know you all. I'm from Canada and have 3 small boys. I homeschool our oldest son. It took us almost 3 years to get pregnant with our first child. The frusturation and waiting tested out patience. He finally arrived 4 1/2 years into our marriage. We got pregnant with a little girl shortly after, but had a sad event and lost her. After 11 hours of labor she was born still born at 32 weeks. We went on to have 2 more boys after her. I look forward to getting to know you!

Welcome to MDC!!

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your little girl. I also lost my little boy shortly after he was born.

Where in BC are you? There's quite a few of us around here. Looking forward to getting to know you!

kimmyj7777,
by the way, have you checked out the 'tribes' yet? The Canada one has a few different threads from BC.
And I send for you, for the girl you miss.

Cool! Where were you on the coast?
We were in Port Coquitlam for awhile and then Abbotsford and then finally Chilliwack. After a few years down there we moved up to Kamloops and then eventually moved to this area. Looks like a storm is on it's way today! :0(

We're not actually in Vernon, I always say the Vernon area because no one usually knows the small towns around B.C. Lol! We're actually in Enderby! We've been here about 5 years now. And we had hail yesterday! :0(
