It is, Samantha Beach, but as Satti pointed out, there are external circumstances that have made everything a lot more difficult than if we’d lived in another country. So there’s that to consider.

The way I look at it, given what we’ve already been through in the last five years, we can probably survive most anything at this point. I’m not going to lie and say it’s easy because it isn’t. Surviving the way we do is both mentally and physically exhausting, and leads to frequent arguments because we’re under so much pressure from all sides.

But we’ve never given up, and I don’t think we ever will.
