I suppose introductions are in order, so here I go. I'll start off by saying that it feels -very- strange to be coming back after all these years, and yet- here I am.

Sugar Gliders first captured my heart when I was sixteen, I had done quite a bit of research before I got my first girl and before I knew it I had a trio, Two females (one with some 'issues') and a beautiful little boy. I had this group for several years, participated in a couple SGGA events and loved each of them fiercely, but lost my boy to an unknown, sudden illness, and my littlest girl to a seizure (we had long suspected that there might have been something 'wrong' which caused her parents to attack her when she was a joey.) My oldest female, Gintei, I left with my mother, with whom she was also closely bonded, when I moved out to AZ.

My Mother decided after several months she could no longer keep her, and returned her to our friend and breeder- I've no idea what happened to her after that, but I pray she lived a long and happy life.

In AZ, I found myself two years later with yet another trio, a baby boy and two girls who were given to me by a customer at the Pet Store where I worked. Then- as it does, life happened. My fiancee lost his job, I had been put on disability and we were given the option to move back home to MO. I found someone on the Sugar Glider Railroad to help me, as the location we were moving to would not allow pets.

That was ten years ago now, and here I am considerably older, but now with a stable home life and the ability to once again have these precious little ones come into my life. The journey to this point has been long, my husband and I have had many discussions on wether or not we would bring Gliders into our lives again, and finally we made the decision to do so.

With the holidays coming around, I started to prepare to once again do as much research as possible and brush up on my Glider facts, reminding myself of the commitment and work that I was going to be putting into my new furry baby. We began 'window shopping' for cages and accessories, discussing options and what we wanted. My husband wanted a girl- Only a girl, and I had long ago fallen in love with the color mutations.

What we didn't expect was that our window shopping last Thursday would end quite abruptly when we walked into a pet store, and walked out with a beautiful mosaic -boy-. ;P

So now, here I am again, more than ready to rejoin the community and be the best glider parent I can be. ^_^

:welcome2: Back!

I think things have changed for the better for gliders in 10 years. I have only been a vlider parent for 2+ years, but have enjoyed every minute!

So glad you're here!

Please ask any questions and we love pics once your little boy settles in.

Be patient,
