Chapter 15

Several weeks had gone by and Brooklyn was growing stronger but was still having to stay at the hospital. Carrie and Brad were constantly at the hospital visiting Brooklyn and the nurses were not complaining because Brad was cute. Carrie has to laugh at the nurses falling all over themselves at Brad when he walked by or said hey to them. He was really nice and signed autographs and took pictures with them.

"You have tons of fans here" Carrie giggled one afternoon as they past the nurse's station as the nurses smiled and waved.
Brad looked and smiled, blushed, and nodded and then took Carrie's hand in his as they continued down the hallway to the NICU unit.
"You're embarrassed Mr Richards" Carrie smirked.
"Yeah I am" Brad said turning more red with embarrassment.

They got to the NICU and headed in to visit with Brooklyn. Carrie sat in a rocking chair and the nurse brought Brooklyn over because Brooklyn was able to be out of her incubator for just a short time.

Carrie was holding Brooklyn and it was so amazing and made her happy because her baby was in her arms.

"She is getting bigger" Carrie exclaimed with a huge smile and looked at Brad. Brad smiled back, "Yes she is and hopefully soon we will have her home in the nursery".
"Oh Brad we gotta finish the nursery" Carrie said slightly freaking out.
"It will be done relax sweetheart. I promise" Brad said leaning over to give Carrie a quick kiss.


Carrie and Brad were home that evening chilling watching a movie. Carrie was leaning on Brad's chest and snuggling. It was fun to be close like this and just being alone.

"Hey Brad, I am really happy now"
"Oh yeah"
"Yes because I know Brooklyn is going to be home soon and I will finally get to be a mom. Everything is perfect now".
"Yeah things are definitely great now" Brad said and kissed the top of Carrie's head.

Carrie moved and leaned into Brad and kissed him deeply on the lips. Brad smirked and kissed her passionately back. It turned into a fun make out session for Brad and Carrie on their sofa. The movie was ignored and that was fine.

Chapter 14

Carrie was finally released from the hospital but had to leave her daughter in the NICU. Carrie was getting pushed by the nursery and she said, "Stop and I wanna see my little girl before I go".

The nurse stopped and helped Carrie out of the wheelchair. Brad took Carrie's hand and walked with her over to the window to look at their daughter.

Carrie looked at Brooklyn in her special bassinet and hook up to some machines and it made her sad.

"She is so little" Carrie said biting her lip as she looked at Brad.
"Yes she is but remember she is a Richards" Brad said and took Carrie's face in his hands and leaned down and kissed her deeply.

Brad pulled back and looked at Carrie and they smiled at each other and then he helped her back into her wheelchair. The nurse pushed her down to the car and then Brad helped Carrie into the car. They headed home and Carrie looked out her window thinking about her baby.

When they got home Carrie walked into the condo and went over to the sofa and sat down. She put her hands on her abdomen and let the tears fall. Brad sat down next to her and pulled her into a hug and held her close. Brad rubbed her back and just whispered how much he loved her and everything would be fine.


That night Carrie and Brad were laying in bed snuggled together. Carrie was laying on Brad's chest and thinking about their daughter.

"Brad, you know how scared I am about losing Brooklyn right?"
"Yes baby, I know its hard for you after losing two babies before but Brooklyn is stronger and I feel in my heart she will be home very soon" Brad explained.
"I can't lose another baby especially our baby" Carrie said smiling up at Brad.
Brad leaned down and kissed Carrie deeply and then they feel asleep in each others arms.

The next morning Carrie woke up and untangled herself from Brad's arms. She walked quietly into the bathroom.

Brad moved to pulled Carrie close and realized she was not in bed next to him.

"Sweetheart, where are you?"

Carrie came out of the bathroom and Brad patted the spot next to him on the bed. Carrie giggled and climbed back into bed and snuggled against Brad. They started kissing and making out and then cuddled together.

Carrie pulled back and said, "We need to go and see Brooklyn this morning". Brad kissed Carrie one more time and then they got ready to go to the hospital.


At the hospital Carrie and Brad spent time talking to Brooklyn. The doctor had said talking to their baby was good for her and would help her getting better quicker. That made Brad and Carrie hope that Brooklyn would be home soon.

Chapter 13

Carrie was in her hospital room and the nurses were prepping her for labor. Brad was a nervous wreak and not sure what to do so he sat off to the side and waited until he could hold Carrie's hand. Finally Carrie reached out for Brad's hand and he walked over and held her hand.

"Oh god Brad this is freaking out" Carrie said flipping out.
"It is going to be fine. Just relax" Brad said gently pushing her hair off her face and then giving her a quick kiss on the forehead.
"I...can....not...relax Brad! I have a baby inside of me and it wants OUT! UGH Oh God" Carrie stuttered.

Brad gave Carrie some ice chips to suck and he caressed her hand to try and relax her.

Carrie was slowly starting to calm down because Brad seemed to have that affect on her and that he was caressing her hand was wonderful. He always knew how to calm her down by either holding her hand or giving her a kiss.

The doctor walked in and asked, "How's the patient?"
"I am doing better" Carrie said smiling at Brad, who smiled back at Carrie.
"Good then let's have a baby" the doctor said.


Several hours later Brad and Carrie were the proud parents of a beautiful baby girl. They named her Brooklyn Grace Richards. Little Brooklyn was rushed off to the Neonatal Unit because she was born early. Carrie and Brad had a few moments with their new daughter and then had to watch as the nurses took her so the doctor could check Brooklyn out.

After Brooklyn was gone, Carrie took a deep breath and look up at Brad with tears in her eyes. Brad looked down at Carrie and kissed her.

"I can not say if everything will be perfect but Brooklyn is a Richards and we are strong" Brad said looking lovingly into his fiancee's eyes.
"I hope so because I need our baby daughter to survive after losing two other babies" Carrie said strongly.
"I know sweetheart and all you and I can do is pray for Brooklyn to be strong and survive".
"Bradley you always make me feel better and I love you so much" Carrie said smiling.
"I love you more Carrie" Brad said kissing Carrie again and held her as they prayed for their new baby girl and her survival.
