Name: Ashley
Where do you live: Wyoming
How many kids do you have, names and ages: 2, Clark is 5 and Anna will be three in Jan.
Wanna post their pics: I would, if I could ever figure out the html tags around here, but I can't.
Are you partnered: it's complicated - we are not 'officially' together any longer, but neither have we moved into new relationships either. We are taking some time to work on our personal issues and then we will revisit our relationship. See, I told you it was complicated
. And FTR, this is not my children's father I am talking about - I've been separated from him for 2 years now and would never consider going back.

What drew you to MDC: The lactivism forums are what drew me in - back when I was helping to organize the ABC Nurse-In.

Hello!

Name: Helen
Where do you live: Swindon, England. But I grew up just down the road from Kiz

How many kids? 4- Alex turns 11 in November, Isaac is 9, Skye turns 4 in November and River is nearly 20 months old. Our newbie is due in December.
Pictures to follow, I've been slacking about uploading them
:
Partner: Steve and I have been together for 7 years and married for almost 5.

I found MDC after several recommendations from FYT and seeing references from other parenting communities- the old Hipmama boards, a few yahoo groups, the ms. boards back in the days- and joined when I got pregnant with DD and wanted to talk babies with someone.
