My wife and I grew up in Rockford. We live in Machesney Park now. Quite impressive to come across other poly folk within a few minutes driving distance!
We would love to meet you both and talk, get to know you two, and compare experiences. I think it would be great to know people, in the flesh, that we can communicate with! I'll PM you our contact info here shortly when I can get off my smart phone and onto a real computer.
