I've written fairly extensively about the different twists and turns life has taken for us over the last year or so, and I'm really excited to share this latest addition! It's funny, actually, because, just when I had given up on becoming a Doula at this time, this opportunity dropped into our laps.
Husband has long dreamed of investing in websites, so he looks at websites for sale as often as I look at puppies for sale. A few weeks ago, he found that mommyforums.com was for sale. We talked about it; the seller gave him a behind the scenes tour; to make a long story short, we are now the proud owners of a website! It's very small, but we have a lot of hopes and dreams for it.
Through this website we are hoping to build a community for moms all across the country (and hopefully, eventually, world-wide). We want it to be a place where moms and moms-to-be can come and share questions, concerns, and experiences and find sound advice (of the non-medical variety because lawsuits), support, encouragement, and friendship. I've learned over the last year and a half of being a stay-at-home-mom the irreplaceable value of having mom friends and a safe place to share my heart, and we hope to provide just such a place for moms everywhere.
We are growing an incredible team of moderators, and I truly can't wait to see where this goes! If you're interested in checking out Mommy Forums, feel free to click the Forum link on the menu bar or follow this link here. Please remember before passing judgement that this website is still in the very preliminary stages; we have a lot of changes to make to it, starting with the awful pink and green logo, so it could look different with every visit for the next little while. And, if you're a mom or hope to one day be a mom, feel free to sign up to join the forum!
