A/N: I know that it has been forever since I have updated this story and for that I am sorry... My muse has been stuck on other stories but the good news is I am finally back with an update! Just for those of you who also read my story called The Right Choice you should know that for now it is being discontinued until I can get it re-written... My writing style has changed so much since then that I don't feel comfortable continuing on with that story until I re-write it!

Fox led Ethan out into the garage and turned to look at his brother who he knew had something on his mind. "What is on your mind, Ethan?"
Ethan sighed and shook his head. "It is nothing, Fox."
Fox snorted and shook his head. "It obviously is not nothing, Ethan. Now why don't you tell me what is on your mind because you and I both know that you want to."
Ethan let out a small chuckle as he rubbed a hand down his face. "I feel bad that I have not been here for you or for Theresa like I should have been. I could tell that something was off in Theresa's voice the last few times I have talked to her but I never pushed for her to tell me. How could I not know that you two were parents? Am I so selfish that I didn't even guess that you two had something big to tell Gwen and I?"
Fox sighed and pulled his brother into a hug before he pulled back and looked him in the eyes. "You are not selfish, Ethan. You have had a lot of things going on that needed your attention. As for Theresa she is the one who decided not to tell your or Gwen about the babies. She didn't want to take yours or Gwen's attention off of Sarah. Alistair surprisingly has been a big help in making sure that Theresa and I have everything we need for Raguel and Antonia. He has been a hands on grandfather and comes by a couple times of week. Ever since Theresa has gotten through to him about how he was acting he has made sure that he has been there for her. Hell it was because of him that the adoption of Raguel and Antonia went through as fast as it did. If it wasn't for him then we would probably still be waiting."
Ethan ran a hand through his hair. "I don't understand how someone can just leave a baby or babies on the doorstep of someone's house. Why did whoever left the babies on the doorstep choose Theresa's doorstep?"
Fox shrugged his shoulders. "You are not asking anything that I haven't asked a million times, Ethan. I have wondered every single day why whoever left the babies picked Theresa. And more than likely we will never know the answer to it. Theresa is so great with the babies though that it is not even funny. She is a good mother just like I always knew that she would be. I just wish that we had more answers than what we do. I hear Theresa at night sometimes when she thinks I am asleep and she is in the bedroom with the babies talking to them. She is constantly telling them that she will always love them and that she is sorry that somebody didn't want them. She cries for them, Ethan, and when I hear her do that it breaks my heart. I just want to take all of her pain away but I do not know how to do it."
Ethan clapped a hand on Fox's shoulder and squeezed it. "Theresa will be alright, Fox. She has made it through hell and back and look how strong she came out of it. You know I still regret everything that went down and how it went down. I know that Theresa has forgiven me but I can't forgive myself. I'm happy that she has you now, Fox."
Fox smiled slightly. "Theresa loves you, Ethan, and she always will. You two are better off as friends than anything else. I know that Theresa loves me and is in love with me. I am just happy that now we can finally set a wedding date. I have been pretty impatient to do that."
Ethan laughed and nodded. "I cannot blame you there, Fox. You and Theresa look happy together and that is all that matters. We should get back inside before the women come looking for us."
Fox smirked but followed Ethan back into the house. When his eyes lit upon Theresa he couldn't stop a smile from spreading across his face. He truly loved Theresa and was very lucky to have her in his life. He knew that at first she had been scared but they got through that and worked things out and now they were stronger than ever He really couldn't wait to make her his wife.
