Reading the 31st March 2014 edition of the Daily Mail left me feeling melancholy and deep in thoughts for all sorts of reasons?
The front page headline leapt out at me about more and more women over 50 having babies... Thinking "phew they're lucky to get pregnant at that age"' then reading in saw they were IVF cases where women sought help abroad! Even one women giving birth to twins at 61. Hmmm a morally tough subject... As most of these women appeared to be without the "father", choosing sperm donor options. I often think what will that child think and react like when older, but hey each to their own. Who am I to judge? I did know my dad until he left and remarried when I was 12, never seen him again unfortunately ... His choice.
Then reading the next headline that the beautiful kate O'Mara died on Mothers' Day. Although she blessed with children her story ended with tradgey.
Then there is the adoption story above, how we are dealt such diverse circumstances...
We each suffer many different types of bereavement ... The things we never quite had, have and lose!
Your thoughts? Xx

Am working on my mission statement and constitution .... Gosh it's hard to put down words you have in your head, but won't quite spill onto paper! Blockage ... May be it's lack of confidence in self belief of my own words? What will people say or think?
I need my guardian angel...help me please xxxx
I am now in the throws of opening the charity account, wow how complicated is this ... You can't open a registered charity account until you have a turnover of £5k.. Oh jeepers!
So phoned my friends at DotComUnity Credit Union in Bournemouth http://www.dotcu.org.uk who sent me an unincorporated organisation account application form... By the way I like to support community and charities like credit unions, where the computer doesn't say NO and people are treated like individual human beings! Please support credit unions and not greedy banks! I should know I worked many years for one, greedy! This will at least get me started.
On my research today I came across this.. Interesting! http://news.uk.msn.com/video-clips?videoid=7bed4040-85e3-4c1e-97c0-dd18b5c10d20
Ok time to fight isolation and create a community for involuntary childless people. Xxxx
