I hope y'all don't mind if I jump in here...

As Sam puts the phone back in its cradle, he motions Al over. "I have an appointment with them tomorrow at one."

"That's great, Sam," Al said. He smacks his hand link with the ball of his hand. "It looks like things have changed in favor of the twins... but only by 12%. You're gonna have to... "

"I know, I know... make a good impression tomorrow."

"You got it," Al said.

The next day, Sam walks up the sidewalk toward the adoption center. He looks down to check the time as he approaches the door, it flies open and nearly hits him. A well-dressed couple rushes out.

Sam sidesteps and mumbles, "Sorry. Excuse me."

The woman locks eyes with him, but Sam tears his gaze away and instinctively puts his hands over his belly. Her eyes narrow. The husband puts his hand on her arm.

"Maddie..." he says.

Maddie looks intently at Sam. "Pardon me, but are you... ?"

Sam nods.

Maddie looks at her husband and back at Sam, a slow smile creeps onto her face.
