    Angelica Marie Kennard-Porter

    Benjamin’s suggestion for the marketing strategy to make it so sought after that people would pay a premium was proving to be very effective. Many a crestfallen face had shown the disappointment when the lucky person standing in front of them on line got the last slice of the day. Eyes would follow the empty pie plates being carried out to the kitchen with barely a crumb left of the crust. At $3.99 per slice they made a nice profit, and Kit was overjoyed to see the upswing in cash sales each week.

    “So, tell me how this adoption thing works?” David asked his aunt.

    “Well even though I’m Angelica’s other mother and my name appears on her birth certificate; I don’t have legal parental rights until I adopt her.” Bette answered her nephew. She couldn’t believe he was 30 years old, and this was the first time she’d met him. She was only nine years older. Had things been different they could have grown up together if Melvin had allowed Kit to come home.

    “Does the sperm donor have any parental rights?” David was curious about same-sex parenting. He had no biases about gay marriages; his questions were just about understanding how things worked.

    Melvin was listening intently as he would never ask those questions, but he too was interested to know if the man that donated the sperm to father this child would be involved.

    Tina answered this one. “No David. When Marcus agreed to donate his sperm, he legally signed away his parental rights to any child that is conceived using it. As the birth mother I’m the only one that has a say in whether I want Bette to adopt Angelica and of course that goes without saying. She is her other mother and no matter what the law recognizes, it’s a fact. The adoption is just to formalize it so both Bette and Angie are protected.”

    “I’ve already retained a lawyer, so the paperwork is filed. The next step is undergoing a home study conducted by the social services department of California. It’s a requirement in all states prior to finalizing an adoption. They use the studies to determine the suitability of prospective adoptive couples or singles to parenting.”

    1. Hi Bat,

      Thanks for the update!

      I am a happy reader and big fan of your stories and so glad you came back.

      My father has just recently heard he has prostate cancer, thank god it hasn’t spread and he will have surgery soon and start radiaton too. Stage 1 and 2 when treated soon give you a chance to live for many more years, more than five for example.

      I am happy Melvin is going to undergo treatment so that he can be with his family for more years.

      Angelica Marie Kennard – Porter is a beautiful name. She will bring so much joy and happiness for her mothers and the family.

      Thank you for this beautiful chapter!

      • Bibi28. So sorry to hear about your dad, but glad the prognosis is good. I really appreciate your continued support after so many years. Really makes my day to get comments like this. Thank you.

    2. Hi,

      Well haven’t you made Melvin a likeable old man!
      You’ve also waved your talented writer’s wand over David!

      Thanks for the lovely Post :-)

      As I’ve said before, good to have you back posting BAT.

    3. Hello again, Melvin has turned out to be very likeable this time around., And you’ve even made David better. Thanks so much for the improved personalities, and none of the bigotry of Melvin and David. Maybe the Social Worker could have less bigotry as well, a complete turnaround for all concerned with the adoption, that would be fantastic. So happy you’ve given them softer hearts and minds. Wonderful chapter. The news they are about to have will be devastating for them but, hopefully the treatments, etc he will have will grant him a longer life and maybe a softer heart and mind will help him as well. This is all very well and interesting so hopefully life will go well for everyone for the foreseeable future. Loved this chapter, thanks very much for the turnaround with all the negativity the show had, which never made sense to me. It was as though the writers didn’t know of the advances in medicine that we have, even then when the show was on, there was no excuse for Dana or Melvin to have perished from their ailments. Thanks for turning all that around. Think I’ve mentioned before that you should be one of the writers on the show, especially since they will return in a few months. Thanks again for posting a positive story.

      • Dainty, for some reason this storyline has been on my heart even though it’s taking me years to finish it, I wanted to explore Melvin as a changed man who lives to see his grandchild. There is definitely hope for a few years of happiness for the Porter clan. Thanks as always for your encouragement.
