“Maria,” she said simply. “A boy?”

“Two boys,” said Maria with a sad smile. “Your dad would have been so proud.”

“You know then,” said Allie.

“Oh, Allie, how could I not know? Go home, be with your mother. I know she sent you here, but she needs you now.”

Allie returned to her mother’s home, feeling torn apart inside. Nowhere was she wanted. Everyone was sending her away. Even Weldon was difficult on the walk home. He didn’t understand. She didn’t understand. Why did no one want her around?

And then she walked into her mother’s home, and knew she was where she was needed most.
