Life is good.

Life is wonderful.

I never thought that my brother dying seven years ago would ultimately lead me to the greatest happiness of my life.

I've been so blessed.

I have my loving wife, the one woman who has ever owned my heart, the only woman who ever will.

I have my two beautiful daughters.

Eva is seven now, and so incredibly smart, and Cassidy is five, and absolutely loving kindergarten and the karate classes we started her in, even though we have to tell her it's not okay to practice on her siblings.

And I have my adorable two year old twin boys, Paxton and Peter.

They are my spitting image, and I couldn't be prouder…they have the penny colored hair and are identical…except for the eyes.

Paxton's are blue and Peter's are green.

Emmett and Rose are doing well too; they have a four year old little boy named Declan and a three year old little girl named Julia.

Alice and Jasper are great as well. Their son Oliver just turned four, and their second son, Thomas is due next month.

Things with Bella's parents are better than ever, and they love that we've given them so many grandchildren.

They, along with my parents want more, but for now, Bella and I are quite content with our bustling brood of four.

We've made sure that Eva knows about Evan…although we've never made mention of Charlotte…maybe when she's older we'll broach that conversation.

As angry as I was all those years ago when everything happened, and then when the truth of the things Evan had done came out…I'm thankful to him.

I needed to learn how to hold on to hope that life has its own way of working out, and he taught me that…he showed me how to trust that with a bit of hope and faith, I would find my happiness, and finally find and experience all the wonderful things that life had in store for me.


A/N: I would just like to take a moment and thank everyone who has read and reviewed this story. I know I may not have responded to each and every review, but I have read them all and am more thankful than I could ever say for all of your kind words. I started out writing Learning to Let Go and somewhere along the lines I found myself falling in love with this Edward. He has become so near and dear to my heart, and now, as I mark his POV complete, it leaves me incredibly sad.

Catastrophia, this EPOV was and is dedicated to you. You love this Edward just as much as I do, and I truly hope you've enjoyed this early birthday gift.

I truly don't enjoy the thought of leaving the characters from this story behind, so there may be outtakes in the future. If there are any particular scenes you would like, feel free to let me know in your review.

Until next time,

Stephanie
