We are always looking for new members for our Facebook Group!
This group is for female members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) who have gone through infertility and/or attempted adoption to finally conclude that it is not the Lord’s will for them to have children in this life. This group’s purpose is to provide support and resources for women looking at a permanently childless life rather than for those still pursuing parenthood.
The group can be found by searching via Facebook or by following the Facebook icon on the front page of the website.
In order to keep the group a safe and non-judgemental place for those in similar situations, we have a very specific procedure to becoming a member.
If you are interested in joining the group please follow the procedure below:
- Please contact us via the contact form on the website or alternatively…
- Contact the group Administrators – Jamie Wilcox or Katie Jennings via Facebook
- Please include a few sentences about why you’d like to be a part of the group (this will always remain confidential).
- If you do not contact the Administrators – they will send you a short message asking you to explain your situation – if you’ve requested to join already, check your “others” messages on Facebook for this message.
- Depending on demand, your request will be replied to either with an invite to the group or a message explaining why the group might not be a good fit – within 24 hours.
Our aim is to accept all those who request to join, but there may be instances where a woman is still pursuing adoption or infertility treatments. Women who are in those situations will not be added to the group, as it is only for those who are living a childless life. Those seeking treatments for infertility can find support by Googling “LDS Infertility Support Groups,” while those seeking to adopt are encouraged to join their local Families Supporting Adoption (FSA) chapter.
A similar group for men is also found on FB by searching “Childless Mormon Support Group for Men.” They also have a similar process to be a part of the group and is run by husbands of some members of the women’s group.
