Girl stalks Boy until he starts dating her.
Girl & Boy fall in love & get married. They have lots of fun together. Then, they realize something is missing. A puppy is missing. They get a puppy girl.
And call her Libby.
They have more fun together. Life is pretty perfect.
Then, they realize something is missing again. A baby is missing. Easy enough, right?
Wrong. Wrong again.
And, wrong again.
Girl is sad. She doesn't like to be sad. But, she can't help it. She is surrounded by her cute pregnant friends, & cuddly, chubby faced babies. Pink & blue. Blue & pink. In fuzzy, footed pajamas. She tries to be happy for them. And, she is happy for them. But she also feels like a knife is digging into her heart.
The Girl and the Boy are confused because they are good at everything.
They are good at being married. They are good at teaching. They are not good at this.
So, she cries. She wonders why.
Sometimes she yells at the Boy for no reason. She didn't mean it, Boy. But, Boy doesn't care.
He is good at hiding his sadness.
He doesn't want the Girl to feel more sadness if he shows he is sad too. It's ok, Boy.
Then, Boy & Girl remember that someone else is controlling their path. They aren't.
He has been leading them down it all along.
They will adopt a baby & love that baby with every part of their being.
Like they love each other.
If you followed that Dick & Jane version of my life, then you know...
we have started the process to adopt a BABY!
So, in true Carter fashion, we celebrated.
And then, we bought our own fuzzy footed pajamas. In blue AND pink.
