I just finished reading this episode -- for probably the sixth or seventh time -- with tears in my eyes. It is so real and such a labor of love.
We have all seen Maddie and David deal with crises before, and certainly not with the best possible results. It is wonderful to see them as a solid couple, still afraid, but united.
Wish we could go back to 1993 and get this one filmed......but the pictures in my head are just as sweet. Your ease with their dialogue is fabulous....it's truly M&D quotable! And the real emotion you've put into this episode make it a joy to keep rerunning...over and over again.
Thanks......reading this was a joy!! You did an amazing job!

What can I say but wow. I got so totally immersed in that episode- I was playing it in my mind like a real one! You mean they didn't make that one? Lol. I would be utterly convinced if someone said it was a lost script from the series. It was really true to the characters and you dealt with the content with a delicate yet deep touch. Brilliant Jen. A great read xxx
Jen - Thank you for this wonderful episode! Like Diane said, I could see the pictures, images and scenes in my head. I read this on a midnight flight from Houston to Jacksonville. After 4 hours of airport delays this was just what I needed not to go berserk. Wonderful job! All you fan fiction writers do so well what I have always wanted to but never had the confidence
So gather the kids, the dog, Grandma... and lock them in another room
Jen This was a beautiful episode. I was very moved by it! It definitely at times made me remember certain things in my pregnancy. SO nice to see D&M are facing these obstacles together but also are still scared in their own ways too. We knew this wouldnt be all smooth sailing for our couple & i'm glad for it! Thanks for writing!
Wow...I just can't tell you guys enough how grateful I am for your feedback and support! I've never tried to write so much, in such a short time--it sure made me appreciate what it must have taken for the ML staff to do it every week...and then for the Virtual staff to carry on from there!
So, so fun though...can't wait to do it again!

Let me express my admiration because I did admire this piece of yours very much! I think I forgot to breathe sometimes while reading! I wish we saw it on the screen because it is terrific! Thank you for this!! x
David: you look awful... Maddie: yeah..well...and you smell awful!
