    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Good news to share and official goodbye

    I have been on/off the boards since I was pregnant with my DS- almost 7 years ago.
    I was hanging around after DS turned 6. However, he is now 6+, so I think it's time to officially say goodbye to this board. Plus I havent been on much. I lurk more then post. Work and life is keeping me busy.

    Good news to share is that I am now engaged and we put an offer in on a house yesterday! I will be gaining 4 step kids (19, 18, 16, 13). I am very happy.

    Not sure if any of you remember my story, but my son's father pretty much sucked the whole time we were together. Cheated on me, was a drunk, never wanted to pay the bills, etc. So I feel so grateful to have met my fiance and to be so happy. We are each others best friends, he is great to my son, we have a lot of fun together and get along so well.

    So just wanted to share! Hope everyone is having a great day.

    Congratulations! That's great news about the engagement and house!

    I wish there was an active board for 6 . Emily will be 7 soon, so she's kind of outgrown this board.

    Congratulations on you engagement!

    I have read your story for a while and I am so happy that you have found someone you are happy with. You are a great mom and your fiance and his kids are lucky to have found you!

    Best of luck with everything!

    Best of luck to you and congrats!

    Even if this is an "official goodbye" you're always welcome to lurk and post.

    Have a great day too!

    Congratulations!!! I have stuck around here b/c the other board is so slow. Colby is 5 now so I know I will have to find a new board at some point.

    What board are you considering moving to? I can post a link and sticky an announcement to the top...

    mrswhitecastle replied to Mainemommy's response:
    I agree about moving together.

    I posted an intro on the Elementary board like a month ago, but never got any responses. There doesn't seem to be any community over there anymore -- just random questions/issues posted every few days.

    Levi turns 6 at the end of April but I have no problem moving over to the Elementary board a little early.
