About Me

IMPORTANT: I literally just logged online today for the first time in a month or so. I want to deeply apologize for everyone who was waiting for replies to messages that were sent to me. I just got done replying to all messages that were sent while I was away. I just finished one swap and sending tomorrow and then sending the second one off by Monday afternoon the latest. Things are literally just getting back to normal somewhat around here, but we still have a good ways to go. I won't be able to swap for quite some time though due to finances, postage costs rising, and some health issues I need to work on fixing which could take a while. I will however still stay a member of the site and talk back and forth to people. I will also be penpalling only as a counselor said that it may benefit me and help in some degree, so anyone wanting to be penpals feel free to request my mailing address.

I want to personally thank every single Angel on this site that sent gifts to the boys, sent donations via paypal which I just accessed online today to see who exactly donated. I apologize if anyone feels I am ungrateful because I didn't reply right away as it was only because I couldn't get online until today. I'm a very very grateful person. Thank you so so much and I will never be able to thank you enough.

Forever Grateful, Me aka shortmommy23/Amber

After I'm done the last 2 swaps on my board I will not be swapping for a while as I have to take a break for financial reasons, but I will be checking in with groups and all still. I want to thank everyone that has been so generous and helpful since I became a member of this site. There are so many nice people on here and I've definitely met new friends whether just online or even in person.

If a swap never reaches you please please please contact me and I'm more than happy to resend right away. I work hard for my ratings and for my good relationships with swappers on this site and don't want it to go downhill because of people not being understanding or patient. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
