Births

october birthdays 2031

Marta Steele arrives at the hospital for her scheduled delivery. Nothing has been happening, and Dr. Morgan is concerned Marta’s advanced age may be delaying things in the birthing department.

They wait all day, labor pains coming, but not nearly productive enough. Marta and her Mother begin going stir crazy waiting for the baby to arrive. Marta’s Dad, Walter has decided to stay home as was the custom when Marta was born. He really sees no reason to change custom, so he’s still not come around on his daughter having a baby from a donor. “Whatever happened to meeting a man and settling down?”

Marta cares, but she can’t focus on her crazy parents. She’s having a baby for pity sake!

Her Mom, Alberta isn’t exactly thrilled with the circumstances; it’s all so modern and confusing. However, she is thrilled to have a grandbaby while she’s still alive. She really didn’t think this moment would ever arrive.

After a long day under the hot sun, Miriam passes out from heat exhaustion. Dr. Morgan had urged her to take it easy, but it’s difficult for Miriam to not be occupied, especially when there is still so much left to be done.

Quint rushes down to the hospital to find Miriam resting and with an IV to get her fluids back where they needed to be. Dr. Morgan insists Miriam and baby are both fine, but that the dehydration seems to have caused labor, as the machine is picking up on regular contractions.

They won’t be going home until after the baby has arrived, and she suggests Quint get everything in order, because she suspects it will go quickly as soon as Miriam awakes.

narrated by: Vivienne

Only two months left in our junior year and neither of us are prepared for next year. Well Cicely is more prepared, just because she’s known what she wanted to do since she was five. She’s going to be a doctor, just like Mom and Grandma.

I sit in Advanced Biology falling asleep, the cute student teacher, Mr. Millett doesn’t even help keep me alert. I’m not exactly skeeved out by blood or cells, I just don’t care about it at all.

our greatest joy

march 2030

The hospital had scheduled Paloma’s induction for five am, which meant that they had to rise well before the sun. The trees were beginning to blossom and bud, and it felt right with Paloma to be entering the season of rebirth with the delivery of her twins.

Her family knew of the induction, and actually beat her to the hospital. Her sister, Linnea had come in the night before from EU, and despite Paloma insisting that she’d call as soon as the babies arrived, they came to wait.

The boys were in high school, and with Hazel’s Mom living with them, it made sense to downsize. Hazel loved living right off Lincoln Park, that it took waiting before the perfect house became available. It was a two-story, but much more spacious for holidays and hosting, which was very important to Hazel and Mandy.

After raising children for about forty-six years, it was time for Kenzie and Tyler to downsize their home. Dean was a junior at EU, and it didn’t sound like he’d be needing his old bedroom after graduation. He didn’t know exactly what he was going to do, but he had options, and so they sold their home.
