First off, I need to say thank you so much for all of your kind words of encouragement as I struggle with my personal life. Everyone’s support has been so positive, it has been overwhelming. I feel so blessed to be a part of such a supportive community. The words, “thank you” don’t seem to do justice by how appreciative I feel. I am at a loss of words, so again thank you. From both my husband & I thank you. ❤ ❤ ❤
And now here is the much anticipated epilogue to Generation 2. I wanted to post this before things got too crazy, but when does life ever work out 100% to how you plan? Anyway, I still have a few things to set up for G3, but that won’t take too long. I feel like I am rambling on, so I’ll just end this side note with have a great day, or night depending on when you are reading this. 🙂
Sitting on my patio in the early morning hours, sipping my coffee, puts me in a reflective kind of mood. My therapist always says that I should cherish the people in my life, and be proud of what I have accomplished. When she mentions my accomplishments I know that she is probably talking about my PHD in Pediatrics. But my life has been so much more than becoming Dr. Stella Charming. You could say that, from the moment I was born, my life was destined to be extraordinary.
How many people can say that they have survived an evil curse? Not only did I survive, and therefore beat Anastasis at her own evil game, but I am a better person because of the evil curse. As strange as it sounds, I don’t hate Anastasis for cursing me. I don’t even hate Maleficent for giving her the curse in the first place. That evil curse set off a chain of events that brought me to where I am today.
Because of Anastasis’s curse I have an extended family that I love and adore. Aunt April, Aunt May, and Aunt June are more than just the three sisters who took me in. They are my family. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for these three selfless sisters. Three very different, but strong, female role models I look up to.
What’s more, without that curse Anastasis would not have sent Maleficent and her family to Twinbrook. And I would never have met Brandon. We have had a long and bumpy road together, there have been many ups and downs. We both have had to overcome personal obstacles, but those obstacles have only brought Brandon and I closer together. I can say, without a shadow of doubt, that there is no one in this world that I would rather be with than Brandon. He is the love of my life. My sole mate. He has literally seen the worst side of me, but he loves me still.
We have two beautiful children together. Lincoln looks so much like his father. He is strong, brave, yet very caring and protective of his twin. He is the rambunctious adventurous one. He loves to be outside running and playing as loudly as he can be.
Autumn looks so much like Mother that we have started calling her Mini Cindy. Autumn is quiet (the total opposite of her brother). We were worried that she wasn’t developing as fast as her twin, but Autumn’s quietness isn’t a sign of a developmental disability. In actuality, she is very perceptive of the world around her.
I am also excited to announce that we are expanding our family once more. The paperwork finally went through and soon we will be adopting a little girl. Brandon and I talked about having more children, and adoption has always been on the table. I was given to a very loving and supportive family to raise me as their own. Most children are not so lucky. They are bounced around from foster home to foster home with no sense of stability or the idea that someone actually cares about them. I wish that I could help everyone, but we know that isn’t possible. Still, if I can help at least one child then I will.
As I said before, my life was always destined for extraordinary things. I guess it runs in the family. We Charmings are not meant to lead simple lives. However, this doesn’t mean that my story is over. For now, I am ready to see what life has in store for the next generation.
