We did receive an email from Brit's parents in response to the letter we mailed them. The letter to them asked that they might consider opening up our relationship more between our families..
I have processed it enough that I can type this, but enough that I can find a sweet silver lining. So the usual LisaAnne way of focusing on the positives will have to wait until I can type without tears.
That may be a while.
They are not interested in a familial relationship with us. They are comfortable with the ways things are and they will let Brit decide when she wants a relationship with us.
That is all I can bring myself to say right now.
I know others of you walk this path with me. Thank you for the outpouring of support.
Please continue to pray for an opening of their hearts and for God to help comfort mine. And above all else, pray for sweet Brit, for she is the one who ultimately pays the price for our decisions.
