I don't own this story, I found it online and wanted to share it. The link is:
So Ann and Karen rode back home. As they pulled into the driveway, she was looking at the house a bit better this time and she noticed a playground in the backyard along with a tented picnic table and a pool. That made her excited a bit. The house was also a 2 story house and white with matching trim. Ann and Karen didn’t really talk on the way back home, because Ann was so entranced by looking out the window at everything. It seemed every time she looked at everything, it all seemed so unreal and made her sort of scared that it was all a dream.
Karen stopped the vehicle and got out and unstrapped Ann. She still clutched her doll as Karen lifted her into her arms.
As they walked to the front door Karen smiled at Ann. “So what do you want to do now sweetheart?” She unlocked the door with her free arm.
Ann really wasn’t sure what she wanted to do. She did know she wanted to stay close to Karen though, but other than that she hadn’t given it much thought.
Ann Shrugged then hugged Karen. “I don’t know mommy, I just want to stay close to you for now.” She frowned slightly but didn’t let Karen see it. She was still afraid it was all a dream.
Karen stepped into the house and set the diaper bag down on the floor by the sofa and set Ann down onto the sofa. Ann looked around. The sofa was huge, she felt so small being on it, but it was very comfy. Karen went into the kitchen and came back a second later and sat next to Ann. As soon as Karen was seated, Ann scooted close to her mommy and leaned on her. She was secretly glad to be back at home and away from everyone else so she could spend some time alone with Karen. Karen gently caressed Ann’s head.
Ann looked up at Karen and Karen was looking down at Ann quietly and smiling warmly. Ann didn’t know what to say but she knew that the moment their eyes met, she felt warmth inside her that she had not felt in a very long time. She blushed and hugged her mommy.
“You are so sweet Ann and I am so happy you are here with us now.” She was still caressing her head. “I love you so much Ann.”
Ann felt tears well up in her eyes again. “I Love you too mommy! Thank you for adopting me!” By now she was crying again.
Visions were filling her head of what would have been happening to her on earth about now if she had not been kidnapped and adopted. It made her grateful to Karen even if it was against her will, she would be a lot better off now.
Ann Sat up and wiped her eyes and was almost balling now. She hated being so emotional but she just couldn’t help it. “I’m sorry for crying, I am just so grateful to be here.”
Karen picked her up and put her in her lap and put her head to her own chest. “Oh it’s alright sweetheart.” She rocked her gently. “I am glad they are happy tears and not sad tears.”
Ann calmed down some and sniffed. It felt very good to be loved after so long of being alone and scared.
“I remember one of my friends had adopted a little boy, and he was terrified, well he’s a young man to you but to us all little humans are like little children to us.” Karen paused and Ann nodded. “The poor dear, he was really sensitive and he was so scared he cried all the time. It was very hard on everyone.”
Ann sniffed again and looked up at Karen. Karen reached over to the end table for some tissues and held the box for Ann.
She took some. “Thank you.” And blew her nose and wiped her eyes. “What happened?”
Karen leaned back on the couch, looking at Ann. “Well after about a week or so, it got easier for him, I suppose because he was lonely. I am not really sure why, but then a little more time passed and he was very loving and accepting but it was a long battle.”
Ann didn’t know what to say but leaned on Karen. It felt good to cuddle like this.
Karen gently rubbed Ann’s back. “You can ask me some questions right now if you like, but some I will only tell you when daddy gets home, he would really like that.”
Ann nodded silently, thinking of what she could ask. She had lots of questions but she knew most of them could wait till her new daddy got home.
Karen could tell she wasn’t going to ask after a long silence. “Want to watch a movie with me?”
Ann pulled herself away from Karen and looked at her. “Really!? I haven’t really watched a movie in ages.”
Karen nodded and smiled and set Ann down onto the sofa. “I’ll show you what we have.”
Then she went to the TV and looked in the entertainment center and pulled out a lot of movies back. There were so many movies and a lot had very colorful covers. A lot of them she recognized were from earth.
“Mommy, why do you have earth movies too?” Ann held up a few Cartoon Disney movies she recognized.
“Well sweetheart, I suppose I can tell you that. When the Adoption Agency sets up an adoption, they give the parents a huge care package of sorts that basically has things from earth that they will recognize and items made to fit them. It helps make the transition a little easier by having familiar things. That includes the nursery, movies and sometimes accessories and such. But they usually give it to us before we actually get the child.” Karen smiled.
All of that made sense to Ann, so she smiled and nodded and went back to looking through the movies. She finally picked a movie that was her favorite of all time, “Alice in Wonderland”.
She handed it to Karen. “Mommy, can we get a blanket to cover up with, while we watch our movie? I wanna snuggle up with you while we watch it.”
Karen smiled and nodded. “I’ll be right back sweetie.”
While her mommy was gone, she looked around the room. It still amazed her at how big everything was, it was also very nice and clean. She could look at the furniture and stuff and tell that her new mommy and daddy were not poor. Karen was back in no time and covered Ann up and went to put the movie in, then took her place by Ann on the sofa. Ann rested her head on Karen’s leg while she watched the movie.
About in the middle of the movie Ann had fallen asleep. It was such a deep sleep that she didn’t even wake up when Karen got up and put a pillow under Ann’s head and covered her better with the blanket. Karen went into the kitchen while Ann slept, so she could start dinner.
As she entered the kitchen, the phone rang. She quickly picked up the wireless phone. “Hello?” She peeked in on Ann to see if the phone woke her up but she was sound asleep.
It was Christopher on the other end. “Hi Karen it’s me Chris.” He sounded excited.
Karen was happy to hear from him and smiled. “Hi honey! Oh I am so happy you called!”
“How is little Ann? Is she ok?” He asked excitedly.
“Oh she is doing wonderfully like I thought she would. She was a bit surprised at first but she is very open minded and today has been such a big day for her. We went to the hair dresser and then to the store to get her a gift and she chose a cute doll that she just loves. We also went ahead and saw the doctor today too.” Karen paused for she knew Chris would be asking about the doctor.
“What did Dr. Blackwell say?” He asked sounding concerned.
“She took some blood and Ann was well behaved and the doctor said the blood results looked good but said she had some issues with her liver and bladder.” She rubbed her neck.
There was a silence. “Well sweetheart, the adoption agency did warn us that there could be some malnutrition issues. I mean she was homeless after all and didn’t always get to eat properly.” Chris said, sounding sad.
It made them both sad to think of Ann not being able to eat properly.
Christopher broke the silence. “What did you do after the visit to the doctor?”
Karen came out of her thoughts. “Oh we went to the playground and she met Sarah and Becky, and Ann just adores them! She and Sarah played and then we went to lunch with them and then we came back home! Ann was lying on the couch watching a movie, under a blanket and snuggled up to me and she fell asleep!” She was smiling. “Oh Chris, she is just a darling and wonderful, you’re going to love her. She is nervous but can’t wait to meet you.”
Chris’s voice sounded elated. “Oh I can’t wait! Well I better go now; I’ll be home in about an hour. I want to stop and get Ann that little gift we ordered; they said it was ready today. I’m at the airport now. Love you!”
“I love you too darling! Be safe!” Karen smiled and hung up after Chris did.
Karen then began to make dinner. Ann was still asleep and only stirred a little here and there to change positions. About an hour or so later, Chris pulled up to the house and parked his car. It was dark outside by now and he ran into the house holding a wrapped gift.
Karen greeted him at the door with a hug and a kiss. “Welcome home darling!”
She pulled away and looked at him. He looked excited.
“Where is she? Oh I can’t wait to see her!” He smiled.
Karen smiled and kissed his cheek. “I’ll go wake her. She is napping on the couch.”
Chris nodded and stayed there in the foyer while Karen went into the living room.
Karen got on her knees in front of where Ann was asleep on the sofa and gently nudged her. “Ann, sweetie.” She said gently
Ann stirred and blinked her eyes several times, and laid there looking at her mommy, glad it was all real. She was still waking up and then she slowly sat up, keeping her legs covered and she rubbed her eyes and yawned.
To Karen, Ann looked so adorable when she yawned and stretched. “Ann sweetie, your daddy is here and he wants to meet you.” Karen caressed her head and smiled. “You think you’re ready?”
Ann nodded but felt butterflies in her stomach. She felt so nervous to meet him but was excited about it as well. Her own daddy had passed away when she was 18 years old and it had been a long time since she had known what it was like to have a daddy again.
“Ok Christopher, she’s ready, you can come in here now.” Karen called out.
Chris walked into the living room slowly, and into Ann’s view. He stood some feet from the couch just looking at Ann and she looked at him. When she saw him, her stomach did flips. He was very tall, taller than Karen. Karen sat next to Ann on the sofa. Sarah wasn’t kidding when she said that Ann’s new daddy was handsome. He wore a business suite and he had blonde hair.
Ann’s cheeks were red from nervousness. Chris slowly came over to the sofa. Ann looked up at him, her stomach full of butterflies. He smiled warmly at her and she blushed. He then kneeled so he could be more leveled with Ann.
“Hello Ann. I have waited a long time to meet you. You are very pretty.” He said it kindly.
“Thank you.” Ann Said shyly.
He looked at the gift he was holding in his hand and handed it to Ann. “I got you a present Ann.” He smiled bigger. “You can open it now if you like.”
Ann smiled and took the present. “Thank you!” Her eyes gleamed with happiness.
It had been many years since she received a gift. It was wrapped in very pretty wrapping paper. It was shiny with pink colors and flowers. The bow on top was also a shiny pink color.
Ann looked at her new mommy and daddy, smiling and she tore into the wrapping paper. When she finally removed the paper and looked at the box, it was a white box. So she opened the box and removed the packaging and inside was a beautiful Ballerina Music Box that was pink, trimmed with flowers and had a very intricate ballerina inside that slowly spun around when you opened it. The inside was also lined with light pink velvet. It was the prettiest thing Ann had ever seen. She ran her fingers along the smooth velvet. She then opened the little drawer and gasped.
She looked at her mommy and daddy as she pulled out a gold locket. It was lovely with a pink diamond in the front. Her fingers shook as she opened it. Inside were pictures of her new mommy and daddy, one on each side. She then closed it and looked on the back for she felt something engraved on the back. It read “We will always love you Ann Love Mommy & Daddy” Which Ann read aloud and as she read, she started to cry. She had never received such a beautiful gift before.
By now Chris was on the sofa on the other side of Ann. He rubbed her back.
Ann hugged him and then Karen. “Thank you so much! It is lovely. I have never had anything so beautiful!” She then dried her eyes.
Ann then put the locket back in the jewelry box, even though she wanted to wear it, but it was so late now that she knew she couldn’t. There was silence in the room and then Ann’s stomach broke the silence. Ann felt hungry again.
Chris only laughed. “I suppose that’s our queue to eat now.” He smiled at Ann and Karen.
Karen smiled and looked at Ann. “Yes let’s have dinner, now. It’s staying warm in the oven.”
Karen and Chris then stood up.
Karen was about to pick up Ann but stopped. “Ann, would you like daddy to carry you into the dining room instead since I have got to spend more time with you today?”
Ann didn’t really expect her to ask this, but it did sound like a lovely idea so she smiled and nodded, then looked at Chris. Her daddy smiled, seeming delighted and he gently picked Ann up. Her stomach was full of butterflies and nervous about it but he was so gentle and he held her like a daddy would hold a little girl. He then put her in her little high chair at the dining room table. Karen had moved it there some time ago. Her daddy then put her bib on her, being careful not to snag her hair. He then went into the kitchen to help Karen with bringing out the food. As she waited in her high chair, she wondered what Karen had cooked for it smelled really yummy and her tummy growled with anticipation. When they finally brought out the food on a roll cart, Ann could see that there was a large roasted bird, a lot like a turkey on earth only it was larger. There were also vegetables, like the ones on earth only they were larger. The last thing that Karen sat on the table looked like a chocolate cream pie. Karen made Ann’s plate and then her own while Chris made his own.
The food was so good. “Mmmmm this is so good mommy!” She then took another bite.
Karen smiled. “Why thank you sweetheart!”
Chris wiped his mouth with a napkin. “Yes, she does cook a wonderfully delicious meal!”
They all seemed happy as they ate though Ann didn’t talk much because she was too busy enjoying the food and the dessert was the best of all.
After they had finished eating, Karen put away what leftovers were left and then she cleared the table. As she did all this, Chris took Ann into the living room to finish the movie.
Not long after Karen had finished, she joined Ann and Chris on the sofa. Karen and Chris sat on either side of her.
It was getting very late by now but once the movie was over, Ann looked up at Karen. “Mommy can I ask some of those questions now that daddy is here too?”
Karen smiled and nodded.
“How does the adoption thing work exactly? I’m very curious to know.” She looked at both of them.
Karen spoke. “Well sweetheart, when we decided we wanted to adopt a child, we went to the adoption agency and they ask us what we’re looking for and we told them we wanted a little girl. So then they handed us a binder filled with pages and pages of different ones available and each page has info on it like, your age, sex, and other simple info and a DVD was also included with footage of them on earth.”
Ann listened quietly.
Karen continued. “They told us to take it home and look through it and gave us some forms to fill out, and once we decided on you, we filled out the forms and went back to the agency.”
Chris then took up at that point because Karen looked at him. “After that we went through a very long process, we were given DVD’s of you living on earth. We had to wait to get you, so that took a long time, but they did get everything set up for your arrival, like the nursery and other stuff.”
Ann looked confused. “But why did you have to wait so long. Sarah said you both had to wait a long time, why?”
Karen put her hands on Ann’s shoulders. “They had to wait for a perfect time to acquire you.”
Ann looked at Karen. “Do you know anything about the moment they took me?”
Karen shook her head. “Not much but we do know they couldn’t wait any longer.”
At this Karen looked at Chris and he seemed to understand what Karen was asking with her eyes for he nodded.
Ann looked from one to the other.
Karen then smiled at Ann. “Would you like to see the footage, they shot of when they handed you to me? They film it so the parents can have it for memorabilia.”
Ann looked at the TV for a moment and nodded then looked at mommy then daddy. “Yes please I would like that very much.”
Karen got up and got the DVD and put it into the player. The First scene was of Ann lying on a table with padding that had a cute print on it. They did various things to her while she slept deeply like take some blood. There was a pretty lady that closed the curtain where the camera could not see but then it went black and the next scene, Ann was all cleaned up and in a sleeper and covered up to stay warm. That part made sense to Ann because she remembered it was very cold when she had fallen asleep.
“Mommy, why did they want to keep me warm even after they had cleaned and dressed me?” Ann asked.
Karen pressed the pause button on the remote. She then sighed kind of heavily. “Your body was in shock sweetheart.”
Chris had known about it before they received Ann.
“What do you mean, in shock?” She looked confused.
Karen looked at her. “It had begun to snow when you were asleep sweetheart, and they couldn’t wait because you didn’t wake up from the cold, so they grew worried and went ahead and took you. You had hypothermia sweetie.”
Ann was shocked to hear this. She had almost died in the cold but they saved her.
“You see, Chris left his meeting immediately when the agency told me and him of what had happened, I was so worried but they told us no damage was done.” She then smiled and caressed Ann’s head. “The rest is on the video.”
She then pressed play. In the next scene someone was holding the camera and a pretty lady in a nurse uniform were carrying Ann wrapped in a blanket into what looked like a waiting room where Karen was. The film was on Karen. She stood and looked very happy as the nurse handed Ann to Karen. She was crying tears of joy.
“Hello Ann, oh you are so beautiful!” then she kissed Ann’s cheek and forehead.
The nurse was smiling. “You are set to take her home. She will be fine. Just keep her warm.” She nodded.
Karen smiled and nodded. “Thank you.”
The nurse then congratulated her and that was the end of the video.
Karen looked at the clock on the wall and saw the time. “Ann sweetie, I know you are clean, because they had bathed you at the agency but would you like a nice warm bath?” She smiled.
Ann smiled. “Yes please I would really like that a lot! I haven’t had a nice warm bath in a long time!” She then hugged her.
Chris was smiling, and then Ann hugged him too. He returned the hug and kissed the top of her head and caressed it. “I love you Ann.”
She smiled and looked up at him. “I love you too daddy.”
Calling him daddy felt so good but it felt even better to know she now had a family of her own.
“Well let’s go get you washed up and ready for bed, ok sweetie?” Karen said.
Ann nodded and Karen picked up Ann and carried her upstairs. Chris sat on the couch and watched them walk away. As Karen walked away, she held Ann where her head could rest on her shoulder. Ann could see her daddy and waved at him, smiling, and he waved in return, smiling back.
Once in the bathroom, Karen sat Ann on the floor and started the bath for her. She put bubble bath in it too which made Ann very happy. Soon Karen had her undressed and in the tub of water. To Ann the tub was so huge but Karen didn’t fill it up too much, but made it just right for her. Karen gave Ann some bath toys to play with. While she washed Ann they talked.
“I know I am saying this again but I really am so happy to have you here Ann.” Karen said looking elated.
Ann was playing with the bubbles and the toys and looked at Karen, smiling. “I am very happy to be here. You and daddy are so kind to me and I am so grateful you both adopted me.” She paused and blew on some bubbles. “I just love a bubble bath!”
Karen smiled. “I am happy to see you happy Ann.” She paused to wash under Ann’s arms. “Would you like your daddy to read you a bedtime story to go to bed? I think your daddy would like that since I got to spend the whole day with you.”
Ann smiled. “That would be great.” Ann thought of something she wanted to ask. “Mommy, how often does daddy work?”
Karen was done washing Ann and sat on her knees by the tub. “He goes to the office every day except the weekends. But he won’t go back for a few days; his boss let him have time off for you.”
Ann smiled. “That was very kind of him or her to do that.”
Karen smiled. “Yes it was. Just let me know when you are done ok sweetie? You enjoy yourself, you deserve it sweetheart.”
Ann smiled and nodded. “Thank you mommy!” and she continued to play with bubbles and the toys and soaked in the warm water.
“You are very welcome Ann.” Karen then sat on the toilet while Ann enjoyed the water.
Ann played for a while longer but then she yawned and found herself very sleepy. “Mommy, I am ready to get out now, I am so sleepy.”
“Ok sweetie.” Karen smiled.
Ann stood up carefully and her mommy wrapped a towel around her and picked her up and held her close. Then she sat Ann down a moment to let the water out and picked her back up again and carried her to the bedroom. When they arrived her mommy dried Ann off really good and put a fresh diaper on her. Then she dressed her in a soft, warm sleeper. Ann felt even more tired now.
Once Karen zipped up Ann’s sleeper she looked at Ann lovingly and smiling, she caressed the side of Ann’s head, then she kissed her on the forehead. “I love you Ann.” She was kneeling in front Ann.
“I love you too mommy!” She smiled and hugged her.
Karen returned the hug, gently. She then picked Ann up and sat her in her crib. “Daddy will be here in a moment to tuck you in ok sweetheart. Goodnight my sweet sweet Ann.”
Ann nodded. “Goodnight mommy.”
Karen then left the room. Ann just sat there in the crib. The mattress felt very soft and the pillow inviting, but she knew if she lay down, she might fall asleep before daddy could come in to tuck her in. She saw a teddy bear in the corner and grabbed it up and looked at it a moment then hugged it to her. Soon her daddy came into the nursery and he was carrying two things. She recognized both. One was a sippy cup and the other was a pacifier, but the nuk on it looked different.
Her daddy let the bar on the crib down and set the sippy cup next to Ann’s pillow. “Here you go sweetheart, I fixed you some drink, in case you get thirsty in the middle of the night.” He smiled and set the pacifier by her pillow too. “Mommy and I thought you may like to have that at some point, you can use it if you like.”
Ann smiled up at him. “Thank you, daddy!”
He then tucked Ann into bed and covered her with the covers and kissed her on the head, and caressed it. He then pulled up the rocking chair so he could sit by the crib. “What kind of story would you like me to read you sweetheart?” He sat down with a book in his hand.
Ann was laying on her side looking at him and yawned. “You pick ok daddy?”
He smiled. “Ok then. I know the perfect story to read to you.”
Ann was only able to stay awake till the middle of it. She did know it was a story about a princess. When she had fallen asleep, her daddy kissed her on the head and lifted the bar quietly and put the book away and turned out the lights, and left the room. Ann was fast asleep and in dreamland.
