"The adoption" (will add pic.s later) (Jade and Chris are sitting on the couch, watching tv. A woman with a baby in her arms comes on tv and Jade starts crying.) Chris: What's wrong Jade? Jade: It's just that she looks so happy with holding her baby, and I never will know that feeling. Chris: You want to try again for a baby? Jade: No. It's no use. Remember what the Dr. said? I can't get pregnant. Chris: Oh. Sorry hun. (Chris hugs Jade and turns off the tv.) Jade: I guess we were never meant to have kids. Chris: I guess not. (long pause) Wait! My job covers over half of the cost to adopt! Jade: Huh. I never thought of that! You want to? Chris: YEA! Jade: Okay, on two conditions. Chris: Okay, what? Jade: It's a girl, and she looks like you. (Jade smiles) Chris: I can live with that! (Hugs her.) (The next day) (Chris and Jade come home and sit on the couch. Their cat sits on Jades lap.) Chris: So, what do you think? You like the baby? Jade: Yes, very much. It's just that.... Well, never mind. Chris: What, tell me. Jade: Okay, Well she said it would take almost 8 months to file the paper work. Chris: Yea, and...? Jade: The baby will be almost a year by then. I don't want to miss that much. Chris: Oh. Uh. It's kind of too late now. Jade: I know. I love her, but at least we will see her toddler years. (Jade rests her head on his, and closes her eyes) (8 months later) Jade: CHRIS!!!!!!!! Chris: What honey? Jade: The adoption agency said that we singed for 4 kids!!!!!! Chris: WHAT?!? Jade: That's what they said. And it's too late to back out. (Chris and Jade sit down on the couch and think) Chris: Well, maybe it won't be so bad? Jade: I guess not. But there is one boy! Chris: REALLY? Jade: Yep, one boy and three girls. The baby is 8 mo., the next little girl is 6 years, the next girl and her twin brother are 10. Chris: Wow! That's one lonely boy with 3 girls! Jade: Yea, but he'll do fine. (March 25th. Day of the 4 kids coming home) (The alarm clock goes off at 3am.) Chris: Babe. Wake up. It's time to go. Jade: Okay, I'll dress Cass is you load the car. (Chris carring bags out to the car and Jade carring the bags fot the kids to put their stuff in. They load the car and get in.) Chris: We're almost at the airport. Jade: Finally! Chris: We're here. Come on, the flight leaves in 45 mins. (On the plane) Jade: Babe? Couldn't we have just drove to Mexico? Chris: Sure, but would you want to drive 7 hours back, with 4 kids? Rather than flying 3 hours? Jade: Oh, I didn't think of that. You're right. Chris: Oh look! We're over Mexico now! Pilot: 2 min.s till we land, please buckle your seat belts and turn off all laptops and cell phones. Thank you for flying Priority Air. (At the adoption agency office) Receptionist: Okay, have a seat and they will bring your children out. (Jade and Chris sit down) (4 kids run out to meet their new parents.) (They all shake hands and introduce themselves) Jade: Wait! Let me guess. You are Rodin? (Pointing to the boy) You are Kelly? (pointing to the oldest girl) You are Nikki? (Pointing to the middle girl) And you are Sadie? (Pointing to the baby) All: Yes! Jade: Yay! I know my kids! (At 11pm they got to the hotel.) Jade: Good night kids. (Kissing them all on their heads) Kelly: Mrs. Lantina? Jade: You can call me Jade if you want. What sweetie? Kelly: What is our house like? Jade: Well, it is kind of small. But I think we'll fit. Kelly: Do we live in a country place or a city place? Jade: It's called a suburb where we live. It's like in between. Kelly: I think I like that! Jade: Good, now it's time for bed. Kelly: Okay, thank you for adopting me and my sisters and brother. (Kelly runs over and hugs Jade) Jade: You are VERY welcome. (All cramed in the car back home) Jade: I'm glad we left Sadie in Mexico with your mom Chris. There is NOT enough room in this car! Chris: Yea, but I miss her. I can't wait till you go get her on April 5th. 15 days is TOO LONG. Jade: I know! (Chris pulls into their driveway.) Jade: OH MY GOSH!!!!! What happened??? (Their house was burned to the ground) Jade: Stay in the car kids! (Chris and Jade got out and hugged and cried) Chris: Lets go to your grandma's house for tonight. (Sniffling, Jade agrees.) (After getting all the kids to bed in the guest room, Chris sat hugging Jade) Jade: (Still upset) Now what? Chris: I will say, for the first time, I don't know. (Long pause) I guess buy another house. Jade: Babe, we can't afford it. We just spent close to $10,000 on the kids. We just can't... Chris: Rent to buy? Jade: I guess. Chris: Come on, let's go to sleep now. (They lay down on the couch and cover up.) No one seemed interested in the last one, so here's all i've got on this one. Hope you enjoy. I will add to it when I can!
