New Beginnings

I have written and rewritten this post half a hundred times now.  For the longest time, I felt far too lost to write anything at all about our family, our lives, or the direction we were headed.  I just didn't know what to say. 

Life went on, of course.  Aidan turned 5, he graduated Pre-K, and we're all eagerly preparing for Kindergarten.  Things are very much as they've always been - doctor's appointments, ER visits, inpatient stays, birthday parties, playdates, and everything in between.

But everything is different at the same time.  We live at our house.  Daddy lives at his house.  Since late last year, we have been working to figure out what's best for all of us, and this is undeniably it.  We worried about how he would take it, or what he would wonder or ask - the truth is, he seems to understand and accept this essentially without question.  He understands that he is loved without question, and we are all moving toward the happiness we deserve.  It took us a lot of time and soul searching to understand that, for our family, that happiness didn't involve all of us staying together.

Enough about that.  It's the elephant in the room, and if you didn't know, you do now.  Families come in all shapes and sizes.  Ours is no less for the changes we have made.
