Hello MDCers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Thank you all for your participation in the Ronald McDonald House issues. This is absolutely a concern and one we need to keep up with. I apologize, but I had to remove 3 threads on the issue while we work through them due to posts that name individuals, this could be a possible liable issue for Mothering.<br><br>
I am discussing the situation with Peggy now and we'll do what we can to have the threads returned ASAP.<br><br>
In the meantime, please feel free to continue the discussion here - but please refrain from using specific names when posting.<br><br>
Thank you all in advance for your understanding and please PM me if you have any further questions or concerns.<br><br>
In reading the threads I've been extremely impressed with the exchange of information and overwhelmed by everyone's support - you women amaze me!

Big love and hugs to bluegreen, her sister, and children. Especially sending good vibes to the little guy in the hospital.<br>
With that said... This thread is so important to us all. It's unfortunate that breastfeeding always seems to be questioned at challanging times of life. But these tests make one stronger.<br>
Is there anyway the thread can be modified enough so that some of the contact information can be left. I understand that there were a lot of names floating. Can I contact someone to know whom we should write, call, email?

It's all public info, 2 minutes on google pulls it up. The MySpace group can point people in the right direction as well.

I still feel strongly that there is a definate difference between "advocating for causes" and "having standing in a court of law" when deciding to do other than follow the law, no matter what the law is, or whether you're non-profit, or whatever...but that's been hashed out before, I suppose...

Hey everyone. Things have been a little crazy for us so I apologize for being so absent from the board. I just wanted to let you all know we will be making an update later, about Tobin's progress and how things are going around here at the RMH. The update will appear on Birth Without Boundaries and I will post it to this thread or start a new one. Thanks alot for all your hard work.
