Earendil, my heart goes out to you and your partner. What an absolute mess. And if you are like me, each time something falls apart, another piece of my optimism shrivels up. And at no point can you rage at the social workers who have led you along to believe things will work, lest you are branded unsuitable.
I do believe that somewhere out there, there are siblings coming towards you. Just not the ones that you had imagined.
