I can't believe I haven't found this story before now - have just read the whole thing and absolutely loved it!
It made me cry, and laugh, and I love love love the last scene.
Well done, can't wait to read more of your stories :)

So, I cried. The adoption was too much for me, and I cried like a baby. Lovely work. You should be proud.

Eli's visit was so well done. You write Eli the way I understand him to be on the show- as a complicated man with a complicated life who loves his daughter...if badly. Especially poignant to me was the line where she corrected herself from "want" to want-ed."

A note to thank you for this most impressive undertaking. It was an intense, clearly well-researched and eternally fascinating work.
I would have commented more often along the way had the story not consistently reduced me to a blubbering, inarticulate mess. God help me if canon Tiva are ever tested in this way!
I look forward to your follow-up or any other pieces coming our way.

OMG! I can't believe its over...Please, please, PLEASE write a sequel. I LIVED for this story. The ending was PERFECT. I've got tears in my eyes...
| HAZMOT chapter 36 . 4/3/2013
What a monumental moment for Tony and Ziva. Knowing they will be parents to a warm and loving child in Liana. Ziva will always deal with her restrictions as a disabled adult and certainly the marriage ceremony did not disuade her determination to be a mother. Ziva has full support from her NCIS family, regardless of Eli still being a stick in the mud about Ziva's being disabled. But the long wait, tears and endurance are worth their weight in gold for the end result of Tony and Ziva having a child who accepts Ziva for what and who she is, and not the limitations of a wheelchair. :D

So sad to see this ending . Great story. Need to start reading your new one.

I can't... what... oh my goodness, I don't even know what to say. I'm so sad to see this story end, but at the same time, this ending is feels so complete, so RIGHT, so perfect. Their wedding was beautiful and so was the way they welcomed Liana into their family. I love that you had all THREE of their dads be there at their wedding - Gibbs, Eli, and DiNozzo Sr. I LOVE the scene of Tony and Ziva going to the Navy Yard for advice after they first talk to Liana. It shows how even before her arrival, not just her new parents, but an entire team of people were all waiting to meet her and shower her with love - so beautiful. It's like the saying "It takes a village to raise a child" - that's what they have. It feels strange to NOT end this review with "Update soon," but let's just say I smiled through my tears.

I am actually not very sad to see this going, the sequel is already there, right? :)
It's amazing how far they have come in this! It was a wonderful story for the two of them.
I don't even know what to say. It really was a great journey, I was always happy to see a chapter alert in my inbox. :) I hope I'll see more of those soon.
