Thank you to everyone who posted, shared, commented, sent texts, cheered, rooted, prayed, well-wished, expressed-that-they're-going-on-the-journey-vicariously-with-me, and have been all different shades of beautiful. Thank you.
You are a cohort of my friends and Stephan's friends and family. That makes this very special for the both of us. I have kept Stephan in the loop, and, for his part, he has read through the campaign himself as his energy has allowed.
The next step is that we'll continue planning and considering the logistics of his visitors, my schedule, etc. I'll keep posting updates as we go forward.
Thank you, thank you, beloveds.
Call your friends. Reach out to your family.
Hug and heal.
