"Love when did you say she was supposed to be here?" I called to Lena who was in the kitchen making a bottle for me to feed Callie who I had in my arms and kept pulling at my hair.

"I told her to come back around noon, it's now 12:17." she said walking into the living room and handing me the bottle. Callie looked at the bottle and stopped grabbing my hair.

"Is this all you really want? you're just using us aren't you?" I put the bottle in her mouth. she was only about a week and half old but I loved being able to feed her also. Lena sat next to me on the couch and as soon as she did there was a knock at the door. I looked up at her and she groaned then got up. "everyone just seems to always have perfect timing." I said laughing. She shot her look at me which everyone knows not to mess with that look. I smiled at her then looked down at the baby whose eyes were starting to close. All she did was sleep, eat and poop.

"Hi again," I unfamiliar voice said at the door. Lena waved her in, "hi, just go to your left." Lena said. And the girl looked to her left as saw me. If I lied last night and didn't understand why Lena was so sure on this girl being mine, I sure as hell did now, she looked a lot like me, it was crazy. I smiled at her easing the tension in the room, "hi I'm Stef, have a seat." She sat in one of the chairs.

Lena came and picked up a sleeping Callie out of my arms, "I'm going to put her in her crib, ill be back."

"So what's your name? How old are you?" I had more questions but decided right now those two were good enough.

"My name is Emily and I am 14." 14? She couldn't be mine even if I had unknowingly got knocked up and gave birth.

Lena came back down the stairs and sat next to me and held my hand. "do you want anything to drink?" Emily shook her head no.

"I'm sorry sweetie but there is no way you are my child, you're a little to old and Callie is my first biological child. She just stared at me then started crying. I got up and walked over to her and crouched down. "I'm sorry."

"No it's okay. I was just hoping I could find my real mom. And somehow I got you. maybe I got all of it mixed up."

I looked at her. "does your mom know where you are, your adopted mom?"

"Yes she dropped me off here. But all this looking has made her so sad and now I feel bad for it all."

"Well maybe you should stop looking. It doesn't matter who your related to, that's not what makes a family." Lena got up and came over to us.

"DNA doesn't make a family, love does. And I'm sure your mom loves you. And your real mom probably does too, she just wanted what was best for you." I looked at Lena and mouthed a thank you to her.

"You're right. After meeting you two I think I'm done looking for my biological mom, I have a real one who loves me. Thank you," she gave us a hug then we walked her to the door where her mom was waiting out in the car.

Lena shut the door and leaned against it. "It's about time to get the kids, I'll go get them and be back soon."she frowned and so I kissed her forehead. "unless you want to get out and get them and I'll stay her with the baby." She put a smile on her face and it made me laugh.

"Stefanie Marie, don't you laugh at me. I'm stuck in this house, which I love, 24/7 and most the time it's just Callie and I." She was the one person that I loved when she said my full first name and middle name, unless she was mad then it was Stefanie Marie Adams Foster, and I dreaded those words.

"Alright love, go get our babies." I kissed her lips and walked up stairs to check on the baby and she left.
