For weeks and months now we have been preparing.

We have done all that we can to stay committed and hopeful that our adoption would be successful.

The baby that is being born today will not come home to us.  It is heartbreaking, devastating.......the biggest disappointment that we have had to face in our ten years together.

There are times in your life when you have to recognize that no matter how much you want something, it is not meant to be.

Today we face the reality that this was not meant to be.

I know in my heart that this is part of our path.  This experience is an important part of the journey that we are on that will lead us to our child.

We still believe in this process, in growing our family through adoption. We will not give up.

Thank you to all of our friends and family that have been incredibly loving and supportive.  Today we find our strength and hope for the future, we pick up the pieces and we begin again.
