Shall I wear some flowers in my hair?

April 23, 2008

in BlogHer

I have an announcement.


And perhaps even more exciting (but not surprising):

The absolute best, best, best, best part is that I am speaking on a panel composed of Pamela Jeanne, Melissa, and Monica Mingo. Our panel is on Infertility/Adoption/Miscarriage.

When the Road To Motherhood Is Anything But Smooth:
Infertility, Adoption and Miscarriage Bloggers
Join Lori from Weebles Wobblog, Monica Mingo, Pamela Jeanne and Melissa from Stirrup Queens for a frank discussion about what it’s like to realize you are not on the fast track to motherhood. These women are in different stages of dealing with infertility issues, but there is one common thread. They all want or wanted to become a mom, and have found roadblocks and detours obscuring what seems to be so easy for others. Is infertility one of the last things that nobody wants to talk about? Not in this blogging community.

Check out the rest of the conference agenda, and then consider joining us in San Francisco this summer. If there’s a Lushary anywhere in the vicinity, Mel‘s buying.

(Just seeing if she’s reading all the way to the end of the post.)

Fabulous! I am not familiar with the other bloggers, but know that you and Mel will be the BEST representatives for the community.And of course you should wear flowers in your hair. And maybe a long, Indian-style tunic to go with it. Hopefully, SF-based bloggers like Watson, Erin and Vicious Cycles and the likes can join up with you. I am jealous.
