Dear Carlisle...He's a good dad. I don't recommend teenage pregnancy, but I've also learned in my 23 years as a parent, that screaming about something that's already happened doesn't help anyone.

I've been reading The Path We Chose a little at a time as time allows. I came to Carlisle's outtake today. Carlisle may not have spoken to you like E/B but he did pack a punch.
"I couldn't predict the future...Who could? The truths we saw-they were just ours, and more times than not, they were misguided. I thought about what I'd told Esme earlier-that everyone has their unique terrain of problems to trek through. This was Edward and Bella's landscape. It could be a lonely desert, or a busy city rich with lights, or a calm forest strung with trees. It could be what they made of it. Not impossible. Not the end of the world. So I wouldn't lay my disappointment on my son. He needed me and my understanding now more than ever-and that, he would get."
Having raised teenage sons this passage warms my very soul. There are times in each of our lives that we need guidance to make the right decisions as no decision is right for everyone.
An open mind, unconditional love, being there with support and understanding is all a part of being a family. I loved this outtake.

Thank goodness Carlisle and Esme have been through this before. Hopefully their support will help Edward and Bella get through this. Show them that they CAN get through it. Great chapter!

Thank you so much for sharing this Carlisle's POV.
I read it before moving on to chapter 13 of The Path we Chose.
This is great insight into the history of E/C...
how Edward came to be, etc.
I think this is a great one-shot POV chapter.

Thank you for including this outtake... this was just so hopeful, so beautiful...
