Round 15: February 2023
Narrated by Stella Harris.
I still can't believe we're getting two children. They're a sister and a brother, a 5-year-old girl called Mariya and a 3-year-old boy called Nikolai. They've been living in a foster home for the past few months and we've met them a few times. They're quite reserved but according to the social worker that's quite normal. It's our main goal now to get them to trust us and open up to us.
"What if they don't like me? What if they say they liked the foster mom more than me?"
"Don't be silly, Stella. They're going to love you. Everyone loves you" he said. I think he was exaggerating a bit but it made me feel better.
"Just call me if you have any questions or need help with something" she said and assured that everything's going very well before she left.
Elissa Cooper's book. I wanted to concentrate on directing so I just had a small part in the first movie and Libby Williamson played the lead. Obviously she's going to star in this upcoming movie as well.
- Title reference: All you need is love by The Beatles.
- Stella and Deacon were very lucky with my adoption roll. I gave them time until Stella's 60th birthday to go through with the adoption and they got "yes" on the third roll.
- Minka and Nick have Russian roots. Either they were born in whatever country Wellington is located in or they were brought there from a Russian orphanage. I haven't decided on the details yet but I might create some kind of a backstory for them at some point.
- Stella was promoted to Blockbuster Director this time so she's just one step away from becoming an Icon. I had the idea of her movie and the sequel and then I remembered that Elissa Cooper wrote a novel about a female detective. I thought it added a nice touch to have a "real" book to refer to.
