Is there any hope?
I know it's not a beginner plant. I've been trying to find the "perfect" sun for it and keep the soil moist. But is there any hope?

My suggestion would look into getting a humidifier to keep that baby all nice and humid!

Also find a place where it gets indirect sunlight either in the morning or afternoon, my choice would be afternoon.

Temperature-wise, the fern is best kept above 70 degrees Fahrenheit and should not be placed anywhere in your home where the temperature or cold drafts dip below 60 degrees Fahrenheit!

The small leaves of maidenhair ferns are very sensitive. You'll need to find the perfect indoor spot for the plant or the leaves will let you know it's not positioned well.

If the air is too dry and the plant needs more moisture and humidity, the leaves will do the following: curl up, dry out at the tips and/or brown at the tips, and fall off.

Hope I was able to help and please keep us updated! Good luck! πŸͺ΄πŸ’•
I feel your frustration @witchesspells
I picked up a beautiful maiden hair fern several months ago and it did the same thing - even after moving it's location (I think it was in a draft πŸ€”)- right until I had to chop it right down almost to the dirt πŸ˜•πŸ’”. Sat it on my kitchen island counter and it's been shooting out new fronds. It's still far from being the original full beauty it was - but it's still showing life so I just keep watching it and hoping it'll become restored.
Definitely very fussy plants 😏
Good luck πŸ’šπŸŒΏ
