I'm enjoying the story, for the most part. But I wanted to share something, since it seems like you're trying to write characters that want to be sensitive toward an individual who has been traumatized.
The Cullens' repeated use of baby, babe, and be' be' toward Bella is disturbing. It goes beyond endearment and seems to infantasize her, or make her out to be like a helpless infant. She's not a baby. It's one thing to write a story that explores trauma and healing. It's another, and disturbing, thing to create a victim in order for characters to rescue her. The latter is a form of exploitation.
I'm going to go with the benefit of the doubt and read on. I really hope the baby pattern ceases.

Absolutely amazing story! Loved it. It was very hard to read at times in the beginning when Bella was still with Charlie. You did an excellent job telling this story and wrapping up all the loose ends. Thank you so much for this.

Good bye to you, Frank! Great way to see him go out too! The ultimate revenge.

Ohhh! Tiny little girl. Hope Bella gets better.

Good riddance to Charlie, but Bella has the influenza which can't be good?

I keep waiting to read some resolution on the bad guys, and monkey wrenches keep getting thrown into the mix!

That was something else! So relieved that Jasper showed up!

How can she be so stupid!

Oh, how lovely! Charlie is going to walk away from a criminal trial. I think he needs to get some Cullen justice, then.

It sure would be nice to have an Edward to take-out- err- take care of those people like Frank. He really shouldn't be allowed to continue on as if what he did to Bella never happened.

This story is absolutely amazing. I have not been able to stop reading. Charlie is truly an asshole- cruel beyond words. The story behind Mason is heartbreaking. I sure hope this new baby is going to make Bella and Edward happy.
