Failed cycle. I logged on to write it all out but I haven’t been able to find the right words this time and, besides, I know I don’t have to explain it to any of you. Sadly, this is the end of the road for us for now. It’s not financially feasible for us to go any further at this point no matter which route we take and we are choosing to step back and heal for now. We would like to preserve the resources we have left to spend this year enjoying each other. We may choose to adopt in the future but it will be quite a while before we are ready (and able) to begin a whole new journey. Thank you for being such a loving and supportive community throughout the last year and for everything you have offered along the way. I am so grateful to you.
