Agreed! The forums provided me with the knowledge I needed to brave a second pregnancy, the support to sustain the pregnancy and also have a successful outcome. Additionally, the forums have been a place to help me process through the tramatic experience with my first born, like group therapy, a place to connect with others that understand. Now I try to assist and support others to pay it forward the way so many others have done for me. I frequently refer women to this site from the What to Expect Complications Boards who are looking for answers, guidance and support in the face of this terrible disease. Finally, this board has inspired me to be part of raising awareness through participating in Denver's inaugural Promise Walk. I just got a reply from my volunteer application submission and I'm so excited to be part of such an amazing cause. Thank you to the countless women who have done and continue to do so much! You rock!
