I'm sorry and I hope I am still welcome

Postby cdingmama » Wed Jun 29, 2005 06:24 am

I feel like I caused an uproar with my WARNING about sharing pictures thread. So I would like say I'm sorry and clarify a few things.

1) I admit I live in a very small town and have led a fairly sheltered life. It really had not occured to me that people that I don't want viewing pictures of my children could be. Or taking pics and posting them on their sites.

2)I posted as a warning because I know of a mom that found pictures of her babies on a site without her permission.

3)Yes I do belong to a cloth diapering support board. I use cloth diapers on my youngest son and went there to find out about the different types of cloth diapers available these days as well as to read reviews about new products available. The reason I cloth diaper is becasue my oldest was allergic to disposibles and I did not realize that was the problem until he switched to cloth training pants and he never had a rash again. While I realize that many moms have not even considered cloth for their children in this day and age there are a lot of options out there that most moms have no knowledge of. I want to make it clear that I DO NOT belong to a board that exploits children in any way. It is simply moms who choose to use cloth talking to each other for support much like you all do here on this board.

Sorry if I offended anyone it was never my intention I just thought there may be other moms like I that had not thought about the possibility of someone other than my friends viewing or using my kids pictures.

Michelle, you are more than welcome here. You've gone through the horrible experience of PE, and we all know how such an experience can affect a person. The thought of having our babies photos used for such a purpose is upsetting to any mom, however some of us look at the risk differently than others. Nothing wrong with that.

I look forward to reading your posts here.
