Kind of new Jack would take children. This decision will change his life and the life of those around him.

This was such an awesome story! It took me over 8 hours to read (and I stayed up late a couple nights into the wee hours of the morning to read it)...whew! Thank you so much for your time. You had so many good parts...I especially loved those pictures Sam took of the guys at the tea party and all the comments in the last chapter. There were truly just too many good parts to mention. You have a gift for writing; thank you for sharing and please continue to inspire others by publishing your work. Excellent job!

Good epilogue. I love when people write a fast-forward. I love the fact that they had two more kids. Thanks for the story.

I was very surprised at this chapter. Usually when a story focuses on T'ealc, it focuses on the Jaffas - not my favorite story theme. I was not looking forward to reading this. But you reminded me that I really do like T'ealc. This type of synario is a perfect example of how great he is. I loved this chapter! I read several scenes out loud to my friend. Which leads me to tell you that I have enjoyed the story even though it was not a typical SG-1 adventure - even the earthbound variety. Nevertheless, I have been keeping my friend informed on the plot line as I have been reading. It is a great story. Maybe there is a way to change the names & a few references and publish it as an original work of fiction. :-) Sadly, this would be the chapter that is most difficult to adapt.

My first guess is that the money came at the same time as the relative. Hmmm. Good story. So Worth staying up late.

Cliffhanger Forshadowing! And I told myself that this was the last chapter before bed. I really need my sleep.. but maybe just one more... Yay!

"He knew it was realistic to expect that a trip to the zoo would suddenly make everything better. What he hadn't expected was that it would things worse." did you mean "unrealistic" and "would make things worse"?

Thank you for this story. I think you might know something about child psychology and/or grief. It was very insightful - as you had Janet say very insightful things - that the kids were LESS warm to Jack because he was MORE important than Sam and Daniel. I loved the moment when the kids opened up to Sam by talking about their Uncle Jack. I can really see how that would be a safe way for the kids to express their appreciation, admiration & growing love for Jack.
Even though I really wanted to read a Sam/Jack story with typical Jack and typical Sam stuff, I can't put this story down. This situation is so out of the norm for them that it makes sense that their characters would not be typical. I can imagine that this is exactly the way that Jack would behave if he were suddenly the only hope for three children. I keep thinking Nanny, though. If he is ever going to go back to work he may even need a back-up Nanny for the nights he gets stuck off base.
I love the way that you sneak in sentiments between Jack & Sam. My favorite was when Jack acknowledged that he saw Sam as the solution for most things. - well one of my favorites. I also oved how O'Neill wanted to go over & bug her.

Thank you for this whole story :). The one-liners made me chuckle serveral times :D.
I hope you get back to this story once in a while to write a wedding scene for the kids or maybe something sad and finally two funerals, one for Jack and one for Sam, just to give it a final conclusion.

Amazing story! Very deep, moving and emotional! I really enjoyed it! I think what Jack did for Chloe at the zoo was incredible! I'm glad that everything worked out and that Sam was able to reach Chloe! I also love that she was the one to propose and straighten Jacob over! Incredible story!
