The slow and simple melody of the tears you cannot keep from me -- Late October 1961

Post  Marcus Darwin on Sat May 16, 2015 10:26 am

I had to do something.  I knew that Darwin was closing in on where I was with our daughter - my daughter.  I kept trying to hide from him, but he wanted to have her and raise her to be as dark as he was... I did not want to risk my daughter being raised to hate.  I bit my lip and went into the adoption agency.  I had already picked a family and this was the night I would give my one month old child away to her new family.  I hoped that it woudl protect her from him -- they were a kind family and I knew they would protect her the way she needed to be protected.  A way that I would not be able to protect her at all.  Marcus scared me... his intensity at first had intrigued me.  But then, after I got pregnant, his intesity got too extreme.  He became overbearing and wanting to control me... and his thoughts were intimidating.  I had to protect my baby girl.

We had James with us to meet his baby sister that we were adopting.  James was only two years old, but still.  This little girl was only a month old and we were going to be meeting her mother and taking her home today.  It was all so sudden.  I mean, Ryan and I were looking to adopt for nearly a year now, so we were prepared for getting a baby.  But it was just sudden that this mother wanted us and loved us from the instant that she read about us.  There was no prior meeting before now.  We were a little concerned, but were glad to get the baby out of any odd situation it may be in.  We walked in, Ryan holding James, and I saw the mother holding a little baby.  "You must be Annaliese Kensington," I said, smiling at her warmly.

I looked at them and tears came to my eyes.  They told me that they had a little boy and he seemed so excited to have a sister!  I went to my daughter's future mother and nodded, embracing her.  "And you must me Tabatha Potter," I said.  "Thank you so much for wanting to adopt my baby girl."  I pulled away and went to the llittle makeshift crib that the agency had in the room where I had laid my little girl down.

I was surprised by the hug, but gave it to her because she was so upset.  I wondered if she really wanted to do this.  She looked down at the baby girl with such love -- just like any mother would.  "I am so glad that you chose us," I said.  "Our son, James, he was a little miracle for us since we are a little older.  But we can easily keep up with them."  I hoped that I was not ruining our case.

I chuckled and looked at Annaliese.  "Excuse my wife," I said.  "I'm Ryan and this here, this is James.  We're all a little nervous and excited, as I'm sure you can understand."

I smiled sadly at my daughter and then towards the Potters.  "You are perfectly fine," I assured them.  I adjusted my daughter in my arms so they could better see her.  "Her name Alana Lacey Rylan Kensington... but please, you must rename her."  I wanted to ruin any chance that marcus had in finding her.

I nodded at the poor girl.  "Whatever you'd like," I said to her quietly.  "May I...?" I offered my arms.  Annaleisa let me take her from he rmother's arms and I held her so tenderly.  "She is so beautiful."

I was grateful that the Potters would take my daughter and change her name.  They would love her like I wanted to love her.  Their son already seemed so loved by the way they let him gently meet his new baby sister.  I wiped away a tear.  "James, you best make sure no one hurts your little sister, okay?" I said to the boy, bending down and giving him a watery smile.

I let my son go up to Annaliese.  "James, it's okay," I said to my young boy.  He was never one to be shy, though.  He went right up to her.  "He'll be the best big brother possible."

I held the little girl in my arms and looked at Annaliese.  "Please stop me if I am pushing my boundaries, but do you need any assistance?  I almost feel as if you don't believe you're safe," I said to her gently, glancing over at my husband as we spoke.

I nodded at the lady with a big grin.  "She's my baby," I said as I giggled a little bit.

I gave their son a hug, surprised he let me actually.  When Mrs. Potter spoke, I stood back up and took a deep breath, shaking my head.  "You are helping in the best way possible," I assured her.  "There isn't much else you can do for me or for Alana."

I wished that there was something I could do for the poor girl.  "I will protect her like my own," I assured Annaliesa who looked so worried.

I let the lady give me a hug; she was giving me her baby to have a sister.  "She's mine!" I said to Mummy.

I chuckled sadly at James.  "Alright, settle down," I said to him and then looked at Annaliese.  "And there is nothing that we can do for you, dear?"

I had tears in my eyes as I shook my head.  "You are doing everything," I said to them.  "I am just so happy that you are getting her away from the dangers she would have to face if she stayed with me."
