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.
