What a Thanksgiving delight! Starting with Brenda's totally believable reaction to the news that Hostess was shutting down production, Fritz's wondering what the rest of the pregnancy would hold in the way of their emotional roller coaster ride, to a big Thanksgiving reveal.
And Brenda's reaction to Clay's friendship with Ginny Conway was spot-on. Not only was it believable for Brenda to react that way, I'm sure it's a typical reaction for a lot of adult children when their parent decides to resume an active social life after the death of a spouse.
But most of all I loved the pregnancy journal. The message from Mama to Baby Brenda was touching and so timely for Brenda to read at this point in her own pregnancy journal.
Thank you for this heartwarming chapter.

Well, Kate, you've done it again. You have written another wonderful, realistic chapter. You take your readers through Brenda's and Fritz's pain and misgivings and lead them back together, no matter what the decision is.
I love how you bring them full circle back in Dr. Dioli's office. It's so fitting where this is where Brenda makes her decision. And now on to Brenda's next hurdle: dealing with her family.

WOW! What a story! Having a baby can be a frightening experience for any woman, especially an older one. My mom found herself pregnant with my youngest sibling when she was 43. Needless to say, my dad was a bit stunned but my siblings and I just rallied around her. Being the youngest (12), I was so happy to have a baby brother/sister. Ultimately, like Brenda, my mother decided that she would have the baby.
Even though it worked out for our family. I know that's not always the case. My baby sis was a healthy little bundle of joy. My oldest sister left for college and my two high school aged brothers figured out early on that girls loved guys who babysat their little sister. Yep, they affectionately called her their "chick magnet." Fortunately for us, we worked together and having older children who could drive helped alleviate a lot of stress for my mom.
I'm so looking forward to future chapters. Keep writing!

Happy,happy,happy... Beautifully written Kate Rosen! You are one talented writter and story teller. You really know how to capture Brenda and Fritz's relationship. Thank you so much for this wonderful story,so far. So looking forward to the next chapter. The selfish part of me wants to jump in and say...hope we don't have to wait so long for the next chapter. Pure torture that is.
