So wow this is it I guess. I'm still a little overwhelmed and should probably wait to write this review but I simply can't. Tbh I didn't think you would let it end that way but when I think further ahead I don't even know what I expected so you did a great job as always. You are right, Tony and Ziva are only human after all and it can't alwyas be sunshine and rainbows so it just make sense to remind everybody that even though it's fictional you are still portraying 'normal' people as far as this group of people can be addressed as normal. I like that Haven is not as easy going as Chaya, I like that Ziva is still after all this time having flashbacks, I like that Sammy had to go at the end and didn't was allowed to stay forever just because Abby made big eyes and threw a fuss. I don't know if you understand what I mean and if that even make sense, what I'm trying to say is that I personally find it great when I can relate to characters or when they are not written as super heros that get everything right the first time. So thanks so much for writing this for sharing these amazing stories with us! I'm glad i got to read them!
PS: is Three Years Family the story that continues this one? I'm a little confused hahha

Haven is such a beautiful and adorable name you couldn't have picked anything more fitting. Perfect!

I really really liked this chapter. Just as the one with McGee and Abby fighting it shows that it cannot always be sunshine and rainbows even though McGee and Tony are the most loving husbands on planet earth. They will eventually disagree with each other and can't always put the needs of the other one first. So just as always: brilliantly written I enjoyed reading it a lot!

Your stories are great. You are a wonderful storyteller. I'm glad these are complete, because I'm not sure if I could have waited for each chapter to be posted.

Hey I dont know if you still read your reviews but I had to do one anyway.
It is not my first because I've already read the story once (or twice..).
It is just that the recent changes brought me back. Since Cote left the series I guess I just needed some Tiva romance, and where do I find purer Tiva than here.
I want to thank you again, not just for writing and sharing this amazing story with your readers, but also that .. well .. that you and your characters were my kind of Devon for the last couple of days :)
So thank you very much, all the best from germany

I think you captured the intimacy scene well for this story, I liked it. I love this series of stories!

This chapter, WOW. That was so touching and made me wanna cry. It was just amazing.

I'm tellin you, anytime I read about Gibbs and his first times with Kelly, it makes me want to cry. Love the images of T running around like a chicken with his head cut off, wanting to get back to the hospital with Z and Chaya. I think he would make a fantastic father, if given the opportunity.

Gibbs sat down at his desk. "You're wrong. You will hurt her and she'll hurt you. Both of you will say things you don't mean and when you fight all the past stuff will suddenly come back. There will be some days you don't feel like loving Ziva, some days she'll find it hard to love you. Love is a choice you make, like forgiving and forgetting. You need to be ready for the tough parts too." He paused and let himself picture his girls for the briefest of seconds.
"But Ziva and that child will also be the best thing that ever happened to you. They will light up your life when the darkness is so thick you can't find your way out. They will be your joy, your reason to smile every day. And loving them will be worth any trouble you face together. That is what you need to think about when you promise her all the days of your life."
How very very true. There are days I want to strangle my husband, but at the same time I can't imagine my life without him.

Okay, so I started re-reading this story again...Yes I'm starting practically at the end of the series, but I will work my way back. Lol.
She went for a notepad and sharpie and began meticulously detailing what was in each box, while Tony stood and observed, waiting to be needed. The list she made was taped to the lids so she would know exactly where to find things when they unpacked. At last Ziva put everything away and Tony checked his watch. ****this is so me, if I ever move again. lol.**
It's so weird reading this and reading the healing in MIT, you have done a wonderful job making both of these separate and not sounding at all alike, I know you were worried about that, but it's fantastic.

I am re reading all of you after Somalia stories for the third time because they are that good! On to TYF next. Thank You for all your hard work. I will miss Cote/ Ziva after she is done. Please keep writting stories with her in them. I will read them TIVA FOREVER.

I meant to ask...
"Everything Tony wanted for a year."...so does that mean while Micheal Rivkin was in the picture? Interesting. I always thought he was in love with her since agent afloat.

I love this story and find it very realistic. I think that Ziva would be a very good mother and would be very maternal. I think that you have done a lot of research on this subject and it shows. Plus, this is Team Gibbs, they get away with a lot of things that other government teams wouldn't. But, to add a little realism for you to go on, I was a breastfeeding mom and I breastfed my children for 1 year. I have many friends that have breast fed their children from anywhere from 6 months until 2 years of age. Not sure why it would be unrealistic to breastfeed beyond 2 weeks. I worked at a school and I had several friends that would pump at work during their lunch break or recess break. These friends worked full time and breast fed until their children were a year old. I also have friends who took a whole year off from teaching in order to stay home with their infants. They used up all their maternity leave, then took their sick days and then took a reduction in pay. In our district (we are a public school) after all your time was used up the substitute teacher's daily rate would be paid from the teacher's daily rate and what was left over was paid to the teacher. Most companies have to abide by the Family and Medical Leave act that gives the main child care provider 12 weeks off to care for their new child in a 12 month period. There is also an amendment that says that nursing mothers must be given break time to express their breast milk for a period of up to one year. I do not find your scenario unrealistic at all. I feel that the Tony and Ziva in your story would definitely be doting parents. And I love baby Chaya! I can never get enough of their little family. I do not think that most people expect your story to be 100% realistic. Just like the show takes liberties, I think that writer's take liberties too. But, the liberties that you have taken are consistent with how the show is written and do not seem out of character to me or over the top. If I wanted to read a true story about working moms, I would find a story in Time magazine or in a newspaper. This is what makes fiction enjoyable to read-we can escape from the reality of daily life and experience it a little bit more perfected. Having said that, I find your stories to be very realistic and I think you are probably one of the best writers on fanfiction of realistic drama. Thank you for your wonderful stories and keep on writing them because I will keep reading them!

Okay, I am tired of Ziva and nursing. In the real world I live in that would have been finished two weeks after birth, no matter how hard the pregnancy and I am tired of this. This is unrealistic and you needed to let the fantasy of unreality go to a long time ago. I live in the real world and I'm on a government paycheck and in the event that I'd have gotten pregnant, they'd have cut me loose months ago, no matter the circumstances. Mandatory bed rest and then six weeks bed rest with the kind of horrific trauma means you'll never get a government job again. Shit, you get a bad paper cut and your job is in question. You're a forever liability or switched into non field work. Desk work. FOREVER. Reality, if you still have a job and are not forced to pump gas.. That is HELL. Ziva is dead as a field agent. Forever. Military follows you and I've seen it with my friends that chose to be idiots and get pregnant while commissioned and doing important work keeping us safe and I only to realize how much it meant until they got stupidly pregnant... Raped means get rid of it and move on. Luckily, my friends got loving husbands and got pregnant and now are are unemployed. AFTER THEIR MILITRY record when they got pregnant, no one will hire them because they are unreliable. Ziva cannot be employed. She is as useless as a bagger with six children that need to be constantly nursed unless she is a bagger at WALMART...AND THAT IS OPTIONABLE. She's just not employable even if it were a small business. Never hire her. Too freaking damaged. I've seen too many friends rotated out because of a pregnancy. Still a boys club. Both Ziva and Abby would be unemployed, no matter the assets. It's a boys' club. Like the story, but Ziva would never have been back because of the Boys' Club and even Vance never could have helped her. Pregnant, damaged and dead and left adrift in the world. She'd be prey or dead before the end of season seven, if left to real life. Pregnant and have it? Dead. Would have killed it for herself. Keep another life from suffering. I'm no one's mom, ever. Teach them and send them out into the world and let them go. Just not employable coming from someone whose employment has been judged and expanded, not taking into account that I just might have a life outside work 16 hours a day and have lost relationships because of it. Realistically, Ziva would be forced to quit entirely and never expected back as a traitor to the work, and being still and Israeli citizen, exportable and a threat to the Nation, and Tony would be expected to keep hours up or fired. Not tolerated at the high levels of MRTC. Truth hurts, sorry. Rather have Ziva dead and no Chaya or Ziva and no Chaya to screw things up. Big mistake. No real healing just reproductive issues on top of issues.
Ziva and her brat would be Eli's issues and not NCIS.
