Your dedication to monitoring this forum really makes it possible. Many forums don't continue, and become inactive, because they don't provide for someone to be there for responses. I think posters become discouraged, so it's impossible to learn from their experiences. Thanks so much for all you do!
I know that I was looking for information that I could use as I made my decision to go forward. Hopefully my posts will help someone else.
I also appreciate the responses of members who have been through this, to help me through the rough spots.
I do have a question...how do you safely communicate your email address to another forum member?
Thanks again! Gentle hugs received and appreciated!
