#theguerreiroeilerstribe

this isn’t an easy post to write and i have been putting it off because of not knowing exactly what words to use but I’m just going to say what comes naturally and from the heart

because so many of you are and have been a part of our journey (personally and virtually) William and I thought it was only right to let you know that as of February, we made the decision to separate

after couples therapy and trying to work out our differences on our own, we made the decision that we are better friends to one another than we are husband and wife

not an easy decision but the right decision

for us

we will always be good friends

we will always be family

and we will continue to always be the best parents to Lily that we can be

as for Lily, telling her was the hardest thing we have ever had to do but we have raised an amazingly understanding and loving human who despite her tears, understood and is dealing with everything in the best way possible

this isn’t the end for us

this is just a different ending to the story we originally started twelve years ago

individually and together we love and appreciate all of you and will need your support and love more than ever as we go forward through this new chapter in our lives

with love, Claudia William and Lily
