Hello, loves :)

First of all, I apologize that this is an author's note and not an update! I know that some of you have been waiting quite a while for this, and I feel terrible about that.

You've all been just insanely patient with me as you've waited for an update on this story. So many of you have been with me from the very beginning, when I first joined the fanfiction world and posted the first chapter to "A Fresh Start". It means so very much to me. I can't even begin to describe how blessed I've been by the friendship and support you've all shown me!

Because of this, I felt that you deserved an explanation as to why there have been no recent updates, and why there may not be for the next little bit.

You see, my husband and I were expecting a baby. It was quite a surprise to us, but we were thrilled, none the less. Unfortunately, I lost the baby. This is the fourth time I have experienced this kind of loss, and it was quite devastating. The truth is, I just don't have it in me at the moment to write the story of this amazing little family and their newborn baby. The hurt in my real life is just a bit too fresh.

I'm already doing much better, thanks to the support of my amazing friends and family, and will continue to get better. It just takes time.

I want to thank you for your patience as I heal, and I appreciate so very much your support of this story and me as an author. It will be finished. I promise you that. There are a few chapters left before this 'verse is complete, and a couple of surprises in store for the Hummel family yet ;)

Much love and sloppy cyber kisses to you all!

xoxoxo,

Violet
