I am brand new to this website. I surfed on, and I’m glad I found it! My husband Brian and I have been married for 2 1/2 years and live happily in Cincinnati, OH. We have one child, Monica Clare, born November 13, 2008 (13 months old). We’re trying for baby #2.
I am longing for adult contact, specifically with other moms, and even more for Catholic women contacts. I’m in MOPS – and love it, but I need a Catholic network. What is hard about my region is that so few women my age (mid-20’s) are practicing Catholics AND stay-at-home moms. I have very few people I can call in the middle of the day just to chat!
Anyhow, I have high hopes for this website!December 31, 2009 at 6:08 pm #3979
I just came across this website today and joined…I, too, am a SAHM with 3 young children, ages 3.5, 2 and 5 months. My husband and I have been married 5.5 years now and I converted to Catholicism 5 years ago this Easter.
Like you, I am longing for some adult interaction…especially with other Catholic moms!!! I just tried MOPS last month, I was able to make it to one meeting…i had fun, but i could definitely tell something was missing…and for me, that was Catholicism.
Hopefully we can connect with conversation…I am always pondering my role as a Catholic mother and my role as a stay at home mom…two things I would have never imagined for my life 10 years ago, but am so thankful for today.

Hi Annika! I don’t know why this website doesn’t alert me to new messages. I was bored and browsing when I found your reply.
I found out this morning that I’m pregnant with baby #2! I’m pretty excited! It’s also quite frightening at the same time. I’m five weeks tomorrow.
In terms of “something missing” at MOPS meetings, I always feel a little bad saying that, because it makes me feel as though I’m trying to be superior to Protestants or something, but I truly do feel that something is missing!
I’d love to keep in contact. Just reply or message me – whatever you can do on this website. I’ll try to check back soon.February 4, 2010 at 9:26 pm #3981
Sorry it has been a while since i checked this site…yes, let’s keep in touch. Personally, I am still trying to figure out how to navigate this website! Congratulations on your pregnancy! so exciting!!!

Hi I am a new member! I hope you women are still on here I would love to talk with you. I have been to MOPS as well but I am just discovering the Catholic church and believe the Holy Spirit has led me back to it after hard times.
