We had ordered Aviana's costume earlier this month. It had arrived the day everything changed. I opened the box that day and felt such sadness in knowing I needed to send it back.
In filling out the return form, I was going to spare both the person reading the form, as well as myself in the, 'reason for return' box. At the last minute, and based on the costume we chose for her this year - I changed my mind and wrote,
"Our daughter is on Hospice and recently took an unexpected turn. She will no longer be needing her costume, because soon our girl will be flying with wings of her own!"
I felt much better as I sealed the box and sent it off.
