I have been reading this every night for the past few days, and I must say it was amazing. A great sequeal to the other. Though the previous one was my favorite, this concluded the story up wonderfully, and had me in tears on quite a few moments. Wonderful writing, wonderful story. Love it. :3

Dear Mari, I finally mustered up the courage to read the final chapter of your amazing fic. I was in need of some Shamy sugar and I was encouraged by several email alerts indicating that there are some stories out there featuring the Fowler-Cooper offspring awaiting for me (THANK YOU, JESUS!).
The wedding was wonderful as expected. Sheldon's vows were just so beautiful. I could feel Amy's emotion. There were a lot of sounds coming out of me as I was reading about the ceremony, something like 'aww', *sniff* and .
I adored Leonard's speech too. Beverly and Mary were perfect as well. Montessori is a fantastic idea.
The ending was perfect : such a domestic scene at the twins birthday party, the sweetness as well as a sense of being so comfortable with each other, Robert looking for Aditi and running towards each other. It made me so happy. Aditi is a big girl! *tears*
So I want to thank you once again for continuing the GI saga in this story. It's been a real treat. *hug*

I love you're hint at the Emmy's. That was absolutely brilliant.

This would make an AMAZING movie (!) love, love, love it.

Oh, Mari. What a beautiful ending to a spectacular story. Sheldon's vows to Amy are simply one of the most beautiful things I've read or heard from these two...you've made me fall in love with Sheldon more than I already am in those words alone. SOB!
I can't tell you enough how much I've loved this entire story, and I'm so sad to see it end, but I love that everyone got their just (in Lise-Marie's case) and happy endings (Sheldon & Amy!).
Thanks so much for writing this whole thing, you are amazing. :)

Oh, Mari. I've been postponing reading the last two chapters for sooo long. I don't want it to end! *bawl* :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(
I finally gave in and read this one. I absolutely loved it per usual. The idea to celebrate the wedding in the train station is so perfect! You're killing me. My feeeeeeeeeeels.
The Skype conversation between Missy and Penny was hilarious.
"Of course not," Penny said, a bit defensively. "This thing is going to be classy, Missy. Amy is a mom after all."
Bernadette walked up, holding a roll of tape. "Where should I hang the 'Pin the Tail on the Dong' poster?"
Oh, the irony. Too bad they had to hide all the naughty bits. I would have loved to see Amy have a true bachelorette party. I'm sure she would have loved it, too, classy mom and all. :P
Sheldon's bachelor party misunderstanding was great too. I could imagine Shelly pretending not to know anything (specially though there wasn't really anything to pretend about) and barely suppressing his glee.
Interesting that Leonard and Penny are not the best man and maid of honor, respectively. I wonder which pair of angelic misfits would do the honors? :)

MY EMOTIONS! That's all.
As you know I'm a little behind on my fic reading and as I told you, I have been very busy but I've also been very emotional this last month do to many factors. This has been a contributing reason for me to wait with reading this because I expected the last chapter (which were two) to be very emotional and they were. (And I apologize in advance because when you go over your reviews, you'll notice that I spend much time talking about myself. I hope I'm not as self-centered as a come off. The truth is I just ramble a lot which you’ve hopefully become used to.)
Getting back on track, this chapter was met with both laughter and tears on my part. I could copy-paste most of it but to try something new, I decided to make a top ten of the best moments in this chapter. ;)
10. Penny and Amy’s little moment.
Just because it was a true moment between friends and it’s not something we get a lot.
9. "What are you two lovebirds going to do for your honeymoon?" … "Start the rest of our lives."
There was just something so calm and collected about this which made me love it.
8. "CHECKBOOK is the longest English word with horizontal symmetry,"….
Just because it was both nerdy and funny and sadly something I’ll probably never be able to share with anybody because they wouldn’t understand how funny it is.
7. Sheldon’s vows.
Because sometimes the simplest words are the best.
6. "May you pick me up, please?"
Just love for this and the fact that Leonard ended up picking her up and the whole thing about her being a big girl and then Sheldon and *OMG*.
5. She noticed a faint smile on his face.
My biggest hope for this season is that Sheldon will find pride and joy in the fact that he is able to make Amy happy and I sincerely hope that I’m right when I think that it’s one of the things the writers are working on.
4. At that moment Mary Cooper called out. "What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder."
All love to Mary Cooper. :D
3. Leonard’s speech.
I don’t care how much sh*t Leonard gets in some parts of the fandom but he is one good friend and despite the many flaws that Leonard and Sheldon’s friendship has, it is one damn beautiful thing. And again, I love Leonard Hofstadter and I would love to have him as a (boy)friend/brother/ acquaintance/etc..
2. "I'll be brave, Dad. Like Batman."
1. Her presence was odd. Sheldon didn't remember inviting her.
I know this is like the weirdest moment to put as my number 1 but I laughed out loud as I read these two lines because I pictured Mrs. Hofstadter just wandering aimlessly around the party and her being as awkward as she is, it gave me so hilarious pictures in my head. Also, as you know, I have a slight obsession with Mrs. Hofstadter. ;)
All in all thank you for taking the time to write for this fandom. I feel very lucky to have someone like you write something for a show that I adore.
And Lionne6, thank you for beta’ing this. The beta does not always get the
thanks that she deserves so thank you also and please have some virtual Danish Christmas pastry. Or a virtual Ferrari if that makes you happier. ;)
Take care, the both of you. :)

First of all, can I just say that I love the fact that you included so many characters in this chapter. And I know I tell you this a lot but you really know how to right the them. One things is too add them, another is to know how to write them. And although you'll always be my Amy (sounds a little like a love song, doesn't it), you write Leonard to perfection. You have captured his personality, his humor and all the things that make me love him. I would not be opposed to you writing a Leonard-centric something at some point. Just saying. ;)
I love that the wedding is going to be held at a train station and I feel Sheldon's happiness.
I'm a little disappointed that the bachelorette party had to be tuned down. A mother or not, let's get dirty, dirty, dirty. To be honest, I do not see Amy not having something naughty going down at her bachelorette party. ;) But I get why it had to be tuned down. :)
But moving on... I liked the conversation between Missy and Penny, especially the part about Missy's (and Sheldon's) dad actually threating her as a princess. It's not that I am okay with alcoholism but yeah, I don't know, it's just become so fanon that Sheldon's and Missy's dad was the worst father to ever live on the face of the earth, you know. I don't know what I want to say... don't judge the book by it's cover?
Anyway, since it's getting late here, I'm gonna move on to the next chapter because I'm dying for curiosity. ;)

This is something really special here. Not only does this story take some great twists and turns, but you have written it in a way that we can truly imagine Sheldon, Amy and all the other characters saying and doing these things. Really liked the involvement with Lise-Marie - it added a great, slightly dangerous element that I loved! Kudos:)

Such a beautiful story. Tears tears tears. I loved it so much I thank the universe for having you as a writer and a Shamy shipper.
Oh your fics are always on my 'wish they were made into movies' list.

Great ending! I thoroughly enjoyed this fic. It was tasteful, beautifully written, and so captivating that I've been reading it for 2 days straight! Loved how realistic it was and the issues between couples in a committed relationship. An absolute fave and a great story
