Chapter 26

The house you had bought on your own with your own money over four years ago was a large family home in Brooklyn.  It wasn’t fancy, nor was it in a particularly good neighborhood.  As much as you would have loved to buy a five-story brownstone on the upper east side of Manhattan, even with Steve’s years of back pay from the army, you couldn’t have afforded that.  Still, your home was three stories and had four bedrooms – enough so that each of your kids could have their own room.  It had three bathrooms and the kitchen was roomy with a floating island.  It had a backyard and even though it was oddly shaped and you had to go up a flight of stairs to access half of it, it was big enough for a trampoline and a basketball hoop.  It was a good home for a family, and even though you and Steve had planned a lot of upgrades that you’d never gotten to, it was comfortable, big enough for all of you, and it was yours.

Chapter 25

Numb.  It was the only way to describe the feeling you had waiting for Steve to get back from returning the stones.  The wound of Isabella being taken from you paired with the sheer bone-deep exhaustion you had from work had pushed you into a level of depression where you were just working on autopilot and not feeling anything at all.  You’d wished that there had been more time between Isabella leaving and Steve returning the stones because on top of the fact you needed to grieve with him, you couldn’t help but think something terrible was going to happen and he’d get stuck in the past or worse be killed and you’d have no way of ever knowing.

You were sure the kids were picking up on your feelings too.  They were quiet and withdrawn most of the day and Jacob kept breaking down into tears.  It was understandable.  He’d lost his sister too, and with his dad at work along with you barely emoting, it was bound to affect him strongly.

Chapter 24

The following two weeks you spent as much time as you could letting Isabella know that you and Steve would always be her family and that if when she was older she wanted to find you again, you’d be waiting.  You wanted to make sure her last memories of you were good, and that she knew for sure you weren’t rejecting her.  You knew it was going to make her parents seem like the bad guys – and you knew they were trying to do what they thought was best – but it was better if they looked like the bad guys than for her to think that she had been abandoned again.

The problem was that there was also so much else going on.  You were helping supervise handovers over children, and petitioning the government to reconsider the position that allowed parents blipped from being able to cut off all contact with their adoptive parents.  The kids still had school to attend and Steve was still working with Bruce to rebuild the time travel device.  It didn’t leave much time for much else.

Chapter 23

There was only so much stress a person could take and you were starting to think you might have reached your limit.  You didn’t know how you could keep doing this.  Losing your children, having the ex-boyfriend of your husband – a man he was still in love with – kiss you, having to help take children from the families they’d been living with for the past five years, the death of Natasha – it was too much and you didn’t think you had it in you to keep going.  Something had to give or you were going to go into complete shutdown.

Chapter 22

You had gone into work the day following Tony Stark’s funeral trying to feel positive.  You were going to try making friends with Mark and Julia in the hope that there could be some agreement made that you could all be part of Isabella’s life.  You were also going to start working harder at getting families who were in arguments about custody arrangements to try and do the same. You had an idea that maybe you could hold a picnic or book out Luna Park for all the families that were affected and maybe under a relaxed setting everyone could see that these children were all loved and maybe it could stop being a conversation about who had the right to raise the children, and turn into one about how can everyone involved be a part of their children’s lives.

That was your hope anyway.  By mid-morning that hope had been shattered.

Chapter 21

You were unsettled.

The words Pepper had spoken at the funeral had sat with you and you pawed over them as you had dinner with your family and the family of your family.  So many people who were all now connected with you, all sitting at the little metal tables in the cafeteria.  Your husband, and your children.  The biological parents of your children.  Your husband’s ex and his friends.  The room should be filled with joy because these people all loved each other, and yet instead there were a bunch of what-ifs and maybes.

Chapter 30

It only took a week to reunite all the children who had reappeared thanks to the blip with their parents who had been missing them all these years.  The reunions were the one bright light in the dark mess you were wading through.  Every time one of the parents arrived and saw the children they hadn’t seen for five years, there was such joy and relief.  You had never done this for the thanks but every time they were so thankful and so relieved it gave you that boost to keep going.

You needed that boost.  You felt like you were drowning in a sea of angry and upset parents who just want to know they could have custody of their children. With your focus solely on the children who had been adopted out pre-blip, you were wading through email after email of blipped parents looking for their children, and adoptive parents worried they weren’t going to be able to keep the children they had been raising for the past five years.

Chapter 19

You had been pacing the room for the past fifteen minutes.  Isabella’s birth parents were on their way and Steve wasn’t home yet.  Not to mention you already felt overwhelmed by everything that still needed to be done.  It was only the day after the blip and you had a large group of children in your care who had blipped back into a world where their parents had moved on and now were waiting to be reunited with them.  You were being inundated with calls from parents who had blipped back looking for their kids who had all been legally adopted in the time their biological parents were gone.  It was getting to be too much for you to handle but if you didn’t do it, then who would?

Chapter 18

To say the morning after the blip was hectic would be the biggest understatement of the century.  As well as having to feed, clothe and entertain over seventy children with just the three adults, the phones started ringing.  Everyone who had reappeared to find their children missing as well as everyone who had children reappear in homes they no longer lived in were all being directed to call you.  The lines were in use constantly making it difficult for you to call out and see if any of the old employees or volunteers might be able to come in and help to ease the strain on not only you and the other women but also the phones so that you could get the work done to reunite these children with their families.

You were on the phone feeding a baby a bottle when Steve, Bucky, Sam, and Callie showed up with the children.  Steve made his way to the office with just Alice, Jacob, and Isabella and the three children ran at you, hugging you awkwardly while you spoke on the phone.

Chapter 17

You were thrust out of a restless sleep by your phone ringing.  Keeping it on silent was not an option with the job you had, even now, five years after the event kids would have panic attacks and call up, or something would happen that an adoptive parent would need help with.  It was much less common now, but even still it never went on mute.  It didn’t matter that yesterday was one of the most emotionally and physically exhausting days for you since the incident.  You kept your phone on.

You sat up and reached out blindly, only briefly making note that it was 2.11 in the morning.  “Hello?” you said sleepily.
