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.
