He is only six months old, and there are no legal complications so it is only up to you now to make a decision.

“Can we see him?’

“Yes of course. Pat picked up the telephone and asked the receptionist to get in touch with the nurse in charge of the nursery and to bring the child whom she had already informed Nurse Williamson that day that the perspective parents would like to see.

Ten minutes later there was a knock on the door and Nurse Williamson brought the child in. Laura stood up right away and went to the crib on wheels and looked in. There looking back at her was the most beautiful child she’d ever seen.

“You can hold him if you like said Patricia.’

May I said Laura and held out her arms as the child was passed to her.’

The baby boy reached out and took hold of her finger and Laura smiled.

“I think he may be hungry, said Nurse Williamson. Would you like to feed him?’

The nurse handed Laura a ready-made up bottle of milk formula and she carefully placed the teat into the child’s mouth. The baby happily sucked away on the milk that it had been used to as Patricia explained what would happen now. She told them that they could take the child home as she knew that they had a nursery prepared. First there was a lot of paperwork to fill in and sign before they could take the child home. Nurse Williams prepared a large bag with all the things that she would need to care for the child. There was a generous supply of milk formula and she was told where she could get more if needed. There was creams, Johnson’s baby shampoo, and a good supply of disposable nappies. Some jars of Cow and Gate baby foods for when he started on solids.

“Have you chosen a name for him yet asked Patricia Allen?

“Yes we want to call him Robert Millsap Kinnear, but he will be called Bobby won’t he Albert.’

Yes, Laura that’s the name you chose.’

“Is that after your parent’s?’

“No,’ said Laura: my first child was named after my father.’

“Oh I’m sorry.’

“Its Fine Mrs Allen, Bobby will have his own name won’t you she cooed.’

“I think that you are both going to make wonderful parents.’ Good luck and if you have any problems don’t hesitate to give me a call. Now as I’ve already told you Mrs Kinnear you will be visited quite frequently just to see how you and your husband are coping with young Bobby here. It’s nice to be able to finally put a name to the face.’

Laura went out to the car and Albert held Bobby until Laura got into the back seat then handed Laura the child over gently and placed him into Laura’s arms. The child was happy to be snuggled up in the arms of Laura. He looked up at her as she looked down on him and Albert drove the car home.

“I do not want anyone fussing over Bobby Albert so we will wait a couple of days before we tell our parents.’ I want Bobby to settle into his new surroundings first.’
