About Me

I'm Christina Shaver, mother of two children -- one adopted and with special needs, and one neurotypical kid who I birthed. They're boys, three and five years old.

I started the Hopeful Parents website and am so thankful for everyone who has helped build it -- the writers, the community moderators, our social networking team, our advocacy team, and everyone who participates by commenting on the blog, becoming a member of the community, and participating in our activities.

Pooped, in a Good Way!

It seems like forever ago that I put an announcement on Hopeful Parents that I was looking for three people to moderate the forums.

Heather, Jessica and Insideout510 raised their hands, and we got to work. Each of them are veterans when it comes to online networks like this.

Dear Christina,
Would you ever consider connecting with a group of parents whose kids have/ have had cancer? I'm a member of Team Unite (they are on fb, and at www.teamunite.net .) It's a group that raises awareness about pediatric cancer, but they are Hopeful Parents, too. I wonder if there is a possibility of mutual benefit and support between that group and this one. Please let me know if you want more info.

Dear Christina,
I posted my piece (for tomorrow) today via email to the site. I hope it worked. I don't know where to look for it in order to upload photos into it (my email won't let me do that). Can you please help me? Thanks a bushel!
