"Are you sure that this won't be too much?" I asked Charlie. "It's not too late to cancel the process."
"This feels right Renee. I think we should continue."
My husband was a man of few words and even fewer opinions. When he told me that we should go ahead with the adoption after finding out that we were expecting, I listened. We had put in our application that we wanted a boy. Charlie wanted a little boy to fish and play ball with him. We weren't unable to have our own children, obviously, but we felt as though there were enough unloved children in the world that we would start our family that way.
I was thrilled when I discovered I was pregnant, contrary to how I would have thought I would feel. I enjoyed growing round and my hair had never looked better. At our 22 week ultrasound we discovered that we were having a girl.
On September 13, 1989 our baby girl was born. Bella Marie Swan was pink and perfect and going to be the envy of our small town. I envisioned her in little pink dresses with bows in her hair. She would be my princess.
The adoption process took a little longer than anticipated, allowing me to get used to one baby before getting another. Once they found a match for us we had to wait for the girl to give birth. We were a little weary about getting a newborn at first as Bella was only four months when they told us about our match. There would only be eleven months different between her and her new brother. But in the end, the twinkle in Charlie's eyes when he mentioned his boy was impossible to mistake.
We were told the mother's first name and location. She was a seventeen year-old girl who was unable to take care of a child. She was an A student who just made a bad decision. I could never fault her for it; she would be the reason that my family was complete.
On June 20, 1990 our son was born. We took Bella with us to the hospital. The mother had requested that we wait in an adjoining room. The baby would be brought to us once he was checked over and cleaned.
The first moment I seen my son I knew that we had made the right choice. He had a strong face and beautiful, wide eyes. His head was covered in a thick coat of dark hair.
"The name we picked isn't right," Charlie said, looking down at his son.
"No, he is not a David, is he?" I replied. I placed the small bundle down on the hospital bed and Charlie placed Bella beside him. Their little hands flailed towards each other until they settled with their hands resting on each others. Bella's face brightened with a smile as the two babies cooed at each other. Bella's arm slipped over her new brothers and they slowly drifted to sleep.
"Edward," Charlie said, stirring me out of my daze.
"What?" I asked.
"Edward Masen Swan," he repeated.
