"The last reason, and quite possibly the biggest reason, is that this is so incredibly public.  Yes, I know most of you readers personally.  BUT, I have had it happen before that complete strangers have walked up to me and said "Oh, I love reading your blog!  How are the kids?!"  To me, this is becoming unnerving..."

Remember that paragraph?  It was one of the final paragraphs in my *previous* final post on this blog.  I was posting about my lack of blogging, and explaining why I was becoming uneasy continue posts in this space.

You know what else is unnerving?  Having a complete stranger come to this space, steal my pictures and information, and pass it off as their own.

If you scroll down, you may notice that this page is missing something.  Quite a bit of something.  All of my previous posts something.  Don't worry, I didn't delete them all.  I still have them all saved on the backspace of this blog.  I can read them and revisit them anytime I would like to.  But....why aren't they here?  Because someone actually pulled a bunch of pictures from this blog and passed them off as their own.  Someone was claiming that they were expecting triplets....the same triplets that are currently snuggled in my bed watching IPTV on a lazy first day of 2015.  Someone had taken my profile picture and said that it was them.

I'm sad that this space will end this way, but I feel I need to give an explanation why "The Koobers" is no more.  Yes, it's unnerving that a complete stranger would approach me in a store to talk about my own children.  But it's even more unnerving that someone would steal photos and information and try to pass it off as themselves for their own gain. 

I'm on facebook, so if you still need a Koober fix you can friend me there.  But, I guess as far as this blog is concerned, this really is it.  Thanks for being a part of our story. Thanks for the prayers, the comments, the support, all of it.  We treasure it more than you could possibly know.


  1. I'm so sad this happened to you. I have enjoyed ready about your journey. It helped me as I struggled with my own infertility. I would love to follow you on facebook but I couldn't find you.
    Good luck!

  2. Oh that's awful! People can be so... Pathetic!
    All my very best to you and your family!

  3. This is absolutely horrible and maddening! I am glad you've removed your blog posts - for the safety of your family and peace of mind. And thank you for sharing your journey, you've been an ispiration to so many!! Best wishes to you all and may God continue to bless your family!

  4. That is so scary! You know you can make your blog private, visible only to those that you let subscribe? I know several people that blog this way. This might be a way for you to control your readership and still let those that love following your journey get their Koober fix?

  5. that is awful. i know reading this blog was cathartic for me as i WAS pregnant with triplets, and after going into preterm later and delivering them at 22 weeks, they were too young to survive. that is just plain awful that someone would pretend to have that life. pretend to have triplets and all the complications that came with yours. terrible.

  6. That's absolt horrible, happened to some friends too... I messaged you viafb

  7. Oh, my. Awful. I am very sorry for that. I also would like to say thank you for wonderful reading throughout many years no. I wish your family the very best. Wish I could see you on FB, too, but I understand this "hardly knowing" bit very well and understand perfectly if you feel like this about me. Especially as I am so far away.
    My warmest regards, and again, Thank You!
