My wife and I started the adoption process in 2016 (and continued in 2017). But we were never matched and have now decided to stop the process. Over the course of these two years we have incurred some expenses. Are these expenses deductible as part of the adoption tax credit (i.e. is it considered a "failed adoption" even if we were never matched)? Presumably, for 2017 we can only deduct expenses incurred in 2016 as far as I can tell. Then next year (2018) we could deduct the expenses we had in 2017? Thanks for any and all help!

I did one return last month with TT 2017 on my Mac. Now I want to do a second return, but TT said it needed to do an update. So I said "update". But it just downloads and then when I restart the app, it goes right back to needing to download the update. This is a perpetual loop. So, after researching the issue here, I found out that I have to delete the app in its entirety and then re-download and re-install. So I deleted the app, but now my downloads don't work. I go to my list of downloads and see TT 2017 Mac listed. But when I click on "Download" it just takes me to a page that shows my account overview. There does not appear to be any way to download the app anymore. This is turning out to be a freaking nightmare. I have a very tiny window of time to complete my taxes and now two bugs stacked up are making the app completely unusable. I'll just skip past the part where I go on a tirade and vent my frustrations and go directly to the part where I ask for some help. Can anyone guide me on how to actually re-download the app?
