Thank you all, so very much, for your kind words and encouragement. And for sharing your stories, too. It felt good to write this post, and "air" my worries here ... even though I try not to dwell on the negatives, sometimes it's hard to avoid them entirely. I hope to share more in the future, as things pop up and we move forward. We have a lot of changes coming up - a beloved therapist is moving away and another is going on maternity leave. This will take some adjustment. And of course Crackerjack leaves for college at the end of the summer ... our life next fall will look different but I hope with some reflection and purposeful planning we will be in a good place and ready to keep on keepin' on! Bless you all.
