it's time! answers seem to be coming. as soon as i know for sure i will post it for all to hear (or read), but for now it will have to suffice to say i feel good. really good. for the first time since this whole ordeal started i feel like i can see a clear path ahead. things seem to be going according to the timeline i got the impression we were working with 4 months ago. i'm so very excited to see what comes next. i'm also happy that we will get to spend the holidays here for one more year. thanks to everyone for all the prayers and support. we feel very loved.
