We stayed with my in-laws since we didn't know how long the process would be. We hated to get tied into a lease on an apartment and not be there very long. My in-laws were very generous and offered for us to stay there until we moved to New York. Mitch got a job working at a local grocery store that was only like 2 miles away.
I felt like I had been dealing with death for so long. Not that I had lost anyone before that, but I felt like my dreams of being a mom were dying all the time. I felt like I had lost someone I never had, so many times, which made the loss of my uncle even more difficult.
