March matches
OK ladies, the March matches have been posted on the member status table: http://community.livejournal.com/preg_exchange/2303.html

I only got feedback from a couple people but it sounds like the overal consensus is that there is still time to get a package together for this month, so we are going to officially move forward with the package buddies for March! Please contact your buddy in the next couple of days to exchange contact information and get your packages going.

Due to the delay in matching this month, if you and your buddy mutually decide to put off sending your first packages until April, that's fine...plesae just let us know so we're aware.

Thank you so much, ladies!

Also, I would like to say that as moms/moms-to-be, we all know that life stuff comes up sometimes, and our real-life worlds sometimes take precedence over our online worlds. I would hope that everyone here would be understanding of such situations. I personally feel that a more constructive way to find out if a community has been abandoned would be to contact the moderators and ask them if there is a problem or if the community has been abandoned rather than jumping to conclusions and spamming all the other members with comments noting that the community has been abandoned when that is in fact not true. I would ask that in the future, members of this community please contact either myself or legendofthehawk with any questions about this community or the way it is being run. Also, if anyone is interested in becoming a moderator, please feel free to let us know that as well, we're happy to consider having other mods too!

Thank you ladies, and again I'm very sorry for the inconvenience.

Ladies, I'm SO sorry, I completely dropped the ball here. I just got caught up in life stuff and I can't believe it's March 12th already. I had done up the matches and all and completely forgot to post them! I'm such a doof. Can I blame pregnancy brain? *sheepish grin* Ahh!

Please accept my sincere apologies. Due to the lateness of the date, do you guys still feel like you have time to put together a small package and start for March, or would you rather push this off until April? It's up to you guys; please let me know your overall preference here.

I do have the matches done and I will post them a bit later today.

Again, I'm so sorry ladies!

OK ladies - less than a week to go before we get matched up with buddies and begin shipping packages! :)

When you have a chance, please make sure that your information has been added to the member status list. http://community.livejournal.com/preg_exchange/2303.html#cutid1
I believe I have captured everyone that is currently in the community and has posted an intro. If I've missed you or something is wrong, please let me know!

Feel free to spread the word on this community to your mommy and mommy-to-be friends...as long as they join and post an intro by the end of the month, they'll be matched up with a buddy for the March packages!
