People are amazing. We have received so many kind notes, calls, emails, cards and comments from family, friends and people we don't even know from near and far. It has meant so much and it really has helped us to know that we have so many people supporting and encouraging us during this tough time. I know we haven't responded personally to everyone, it is too much for us right now. We are focusing on moving forward and healing. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
We are still in touch with the birth mom. She is fighting for custody of Ian and Ada from the birth father. We are there for her and she is for us. It isn't how we thought it would go, but we've been through a lot together. She sends me texts to cheer me up and I tell her how strong she is and she'll be a great mom to them. I truly believe that.
I am not going to lie, this sucks. There hasn't been a day that has gone by that we haven't thought of Ian and Ada or got choked up about something dumb. We miss them. Each day is a little better. Marlon and I have a solid foundation and we will get through this together. I don't know what the future holds for us. We are not shutting the door on having a family. Right now, we are taking each day as it comes.
