“Because Daisy and Milo have other siblings, and because we want Daisy and Milo to know that the decision for adoption was a decision of love on both our part and the birth mothers’ parts, one of our traditions is to pick out Christmas presents for Daisy’s and Milo’s siblings every year.”

Can you introduce me to yourselves?
Patrick: We are the Livingston family. We love theater. We have two kids, Milo and Daisy. My name’s Patrick, and this is Lindsay.
Daisy: Umm, your wife.
Patrick: Yes, Lindsay is my wife… And I work at Blickenstaff’s.
Daisy: But you promised to stay where the clothes were!
Patrick: Yes, I did promise, but then I decided to go where the toys were. Which is better: clothes or toys?
Patrick: Right. I used to work at Anthropologie, so that’s what she means by “where the clothes were.”
Lindsay: And like Patrick said, I am Lindsay, his wife. I teach theater at BYU, and we moved here to Provo about a year ago.
Daisy: Mom! Mom, mom, mom. Can you tell them a secret?
Daisy leans in close to Lindsay’s ear to whisper a secret.
Lindsay: Daisy wants me to tell you that she just barely lost her first baby tooth.
Daisy: And my new tooth is coming in and it has bumpy edges!
