Another wonderful DW forum kept me sane while Ava was so ill and we were struggling to help her and figure out what was going on. It was the CA DW forum, first one I've ever joined and I was absolutely blown away by all the same things you were Del. The support, kindness, gifts to the girls from all over the world, fun & nutty post to me (which I think cheered up the mailman too!
). All the same qualities are here too and that's so valuable.
I also love the dynamics here. Even if I don't have time to post, I try to peek in because I know something will make me smile or laugh. The pace is good as well, not so many posts that I can't keep up and not so few that there's nothing new to read.
The best thing is that we now have cons over here where I can actually see some of the wonderful people here and on the CA forum face to face.
And they, unfortunately, are subjected to me in person.
