It has been a year, and we are in the process of renewing our home study. I can't believe it's been a whole year since we started this journey already. I'd love to hear from you about advice to keep the anticipation in this journey. We were on fire last year! But it seems like it just isn't what it used to be. We've had two disappointments during this last year. Anticipation, but then frustration. It wasn't meant to be. I wish each of the situations had worked out, and unfortunately, one ended in miscarriage, which is absolutely horrible--especially for the birth mother. I understand that kind of loss. I wouldn't wish that kind of pain on anyone. Any advice you have would be great. Anyone have any ideas?
