Meredith's point of view.

I don't know what to expect when I get of this plane. It's been almost nineteen years since I last stepped foot in Settle. See, I moved to LA to live with my grandmother after my father left my mother and I. My mother is a surgeon at Settle Grace Hospital in Seattle so never was home to take care of me. Sometimes I think I don't have a mother. Recently my grandmother died and I didn't what to me alone. So, here I am. I'm back in Seattle with my own medical degree to be a surgeon just like my mother. Surprise, I'm going to be working next to her too. I'm Seattle Grace's new medical surgeon. Dr. Webber heard about my grandmother and called me. When I told him that I would be moving back to Seattle he was very quick to offer me a position at the hospital.

As I walk off the plane I see the woman who gave me life, but not home. I can't blame her after I had my seven year internship back in LA in know how time consuming the medical field is.

"Meredith" the woman said. She looked as though she was about to cry with just looking at me.

"Mom" She walked toward me with her arms opened wide. She engulfed me in her arms and held me tight.

"I'm so sorry Meredith. I should have been there for you all those years ago. I promise that it won't happen again."

"I know mom."

"Oh and Mer.

"Yes Mom."

"Welcome Home"
