Brooke: What a strange coincidence, running into dr. Buckingham at your appointment.
Liam: Yeah. [ Sighs ]
Hope: But neither could answer the questions we had. I mean, dr. Lin and dr. Buckingham, they could explain what happened to beth, but neither could explain why.
[ Knock on door ]
Ridge: Hey. I heard you were back.
Brooke: Is everything all right?
Ridge: [ Clears throat ] Yeah. I, um... I have some news about steffy and the adoption.
Steffy: We're gonna go home soon, phoebe.
[ Exclaims ] You just keep getting cuter and cuter, don't you?
Flo: She looks so natural in your arms already.
Steffy: I can give you some time with her.
Flo: No. It really does make me feel better to see her with you. Knowing what kind of life you're gonna give her, with everything she could ever want. She's gonna grow up with a sister, and a mom who loves her just as much as her birth mother would. That's why I was able to do this. That's why I was able to sign the papers.
Reese: Steffy must be overjoyed.
Taylor: Oh, yes.
[ Chuckles ] Absolutely. She called me the minute they signed those adoption papers. Um... I think carter's filing it right now. So we just have this one last detail to take care of.
Reese: The rest of the money.
Taylor: Yeah, but -- but first, I just -- [ Sighs ] I can't thank you enough for facilitating all of this, and I just want you to know, you and florence have done such a beautiful thing for this adorable little baby, and for my daughter.
Reese: It means a lot to me to hear you say that.
Taylor: Thanks to you, kelly's going to get her sister, and I'm going to get another adorable grandchild.
[ Giggles ]
Reese: That's what this is all about -- family. Nothing in this world is more important.
Taylor: So, uh, it's -- it's all here, the -- the sum we agreed to.
Reese: I know it seems like a lot.
Taylor: Well, um, I told you, my daughter's happiness is everything to me.
Reese: We would do anything for our children, wouldn't we? I'm going to, uh, let florence know that we finished the process, and steffy can take phoebe home.
Taylor: Oh, goodness. Oh! That little girl is going to have such an amazing life. I can assure you that.
Reese: That's quite a relief to me and florence.
Taylor: Well, I know you're not going to be in los angeles too much longer, and I really do want to spend more time with you, but I also want to get back to the house before steffy does, if you don't mind.
Reese: Of course.
Taylor: Thank you. Thank you so much for all you've done for me and steffy. It's -- it's just been a miracle.
Reese: [ Chuckles softly ]
Brooke: We all know that steffy's talking about adoption.
Liam: Uh, yeah, but -- but the process is moving really fast.
Hope: Well, there's already a baby. Liam met her.
Brooke: Wait, what?
Liam: Yeah. Yeah, uh, an opportunity came up and steffy couldn't say no. It's not -- it's not official yet, though.
Ridge: Well, that's, um... that's what I want to talk to you about. The papers have been signed, and [Sighs] Phoebe is coming home today.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Steffy: Is everything okay?
Flo: Your mom transferred the money.
Steffy: So, I -- I guess that's it.
Flo: I guess so.
Steffy: Florence, I can't imagine what you're going through. This has to be one of the hardest things you've ever had to do.
Flo: It -- it definitely is.
Steffy: I understand if you have moments of doubt. But I promise you, I'm gonna love phoebe. I already do. She's gonna be safe and happy with kelly and me. You don't have to worry. You don't have to worry. I'm gonna give her everything you could ever want.
Flo: All I really want for her is -- is to be all right.
Steffy: I give you my word. I'm gonna take good care of her. You'll never have to wonder if you're doing the right thing.
So. You have something for mr. Thicke?
Reese: I thought I made it clear when I called that I just wanted to deal with him.
Thicke: I decide who I'm going to talk to, doctor.
Oh, whoa, whoa. Don't get up.
Thicke: [ Clears throat ] Now. I hope that you're not gonna be wasting my time. Because if you don't have what I want, you and my associate, you're gonna go someplace less public to talk about it.
Reese: It's all here.
Thicke: All of it?
Reese: Check it yourself.
Thicke: Not here. Not here. Besides, the good doctor knows that there are dire consequences to pay if he shorts me.
Reese: I met my obligations. So I don't want to see you or your thugs anywhere near me or my daughter. Okay? So back off. Leave my daughter alone.
Hope: So, kelly has a sister. Phoebe.
Brooke: Oh, sweetheart. I still can't believe all of this.
Liam: I-I don't think steffy realized it would happen this quickly. I mean, if she could have waited, she would have./
Ridge: I hope I didn't make a mistake telling you. I just -- I didn't want you to hear it somewhere else, you know? I thought you should hear it from family.
Brooke: Thank you.
Hope: Wow. Two girls. Doing it all on her own.
Liam: Um, well, you know, I-I'm gonna be helping with kelly.
Ridge: And steffy has amelia. And, of course, taylor is there.
Liam: Right, right.
Liam: I mean, it was -- it was taylor's contact that -- that put steffy in touch with the birth mother.
Ridge: And that's all I know. I know taylor's happy that she could do this for steffy, and she's waiting at the house
[Sighs] Ready to welcome her granddaughter.
Steffy: Aw! Oh! [ Laughs ] Welcome home, phoebe. You're gonna be so happy here. And you're really gonna love having a sister. You're gonna have the most --
Taylor: [ Gasps ] Oh!
Steffy: ...Loving, thoughtful grandmother in the whole wide world.
Taylor: You're here!
Steffy: We're here!
Taylor: Oh! Oh, my goodness.
Steffy: I know.
Taylor: Oh! Beautiful little baby phoebe. Do you remember me, honey?
Taylor: It's your grandma.
Steffy: I know. When you said that you had everything together, I thought you were talking about the nursery. Mom, this is so sweet of you.
Taylor: Yeah. Yeah, I have the nursery all set up. Everything's there, just like when you and phoebe were little.
Steffy: [ Chuckles ]
Taylor: Oh, my gosh. We have such a beautiful little family.
Steffy: Yeah, we do. I never thought I was gonna feel this, this immediate connection, this bond.
Taylor: It's such a blessing for both of you.
Steffy: Yeah. Is kelly still napping?
Taylor: Oh, yeah. Yeah. She, uh -- she'll be out for a little while.
Steffy: How long do you think it's gonna take to get them on the same sleeping schedule?
Taylor: Oh, gosh. If it's anything like you and your sister, it'll be a while.
[ Chuckles ]
Steffy: [ Chuckles ] Well, luckily I have you, my experienced helper. We can take shifts.
Taylor: Oh, I'd love to.
Taylor: Twist my arm.
Steffy: Mom, I can't believe it. I can't believe it. You're really here. She's really here.
Thicke: Look, I didn't want to do this. But you -- you were the one that didn't make good on your debt. I had to motivate you.
Reese: They threatened my daughter!
Thicke: You were warned from the very beginning that I collect on my loans. She's safe now.
Reese: [ Sighs ]
Thicke: It was a pleasure doing business with you. Till next time.
Reese: [ Scoffs ] There won't be a next time.
Thicke: Oh, there'll be a next time -- the next time you hit the tables.
Reese: No. No, I'm do-- I'm done. No more trying to win myself out of trouble. I dug myself deep. I made a bunch of bad decisions. But I am done. It's over.
Thicke: Sure, doc. That's what they all say.
Taylor: [ Exclaims ] I just -- I still can't get over her.
Steffy: I know.
Taylor: Phoebe. Your daughter.
[ Gasps ] Oh, my goodness. It must have been so hard for florence to say goodbye.
Steffy: Yeah, I-I think she did that before carter and I got there. I offered, but she said it was better that phoebe was with me.
[ Laughs ] Oh! Yeah, she says she knows she's gonna have a good life, and a mother who would love her just as much as a birth mother would have.
Taylor: That's such a beautiful thing to say.
Steffy: Yeah, I know. I'm just still blown away. This all happened so quickly. Like, I-I wanted a sister for kelly, but... it just -- it happened so fast. Oh! After what happened to beth, I didn't think it was gonna happen.
Steffy: I didn't even want to bring up adoption. I didn't know how hope or liam would react. Their little girl was supposed to be kelly's sister.
Liam: Hey. Um... you okay?
Hope: Well, we knew this was probably gonna happen.
Brooke: Are you sure?
Hope: Yeah. You know, steffy and I were working to build a blended family together, and we wanted our daughters to feel like sisters, so... yeah, you know, the news is hard, but it's also something to celebrate. You know, steffy is giving a loving home to a child who needs one, and she's gonna have a sister, and caring grandparents. And... an incredible father figure. You should go over there. Help out.
Ridge: Uh, steffy's not alone. Taylor is there.
Hope: Yeah, well, phoebe should feel like she's a part of the family from day one, so... you know, you should be there to welcome kelly's sister home.
Liam: I -- mm... I'm not... I don't feel great about leaving you right now.
Hope: Go. Be with them. They're your family, too.
Sometimes, the pressures of
today's world can make it tough
Would you like to order something else?
Reese: No, thank you. I seem to have lost my appetite. Can I get the check, please?
Reese: Thank you.
Reese: [ Sniffles ]
Hope: Nothing? There -- there was... there was nothing? Doctor, if -- no, if I -- if I hadn't passed out, would our beth still be with us?
[ Wind howling ] If I hadn't passed out when I did, would our beth still be with us?
Ridge: You didn't have to do that.
Hope: Liam wouldn't have gone if I didn'T.
Brooke: Liam isn't phoebe's father.
Hope: Yeah, well, ridge wasn't my father, but he helped raise me.
Ridge: And I'm still here for you. You know that, right?
Hope: Well, liam should be there for kelly and phoebe.
Brooke: Honey, what you're doing is incredibly brave.
Ridge: And seeing steffy like this, I know it can't be easy for you.
Hope: You're right. I wouldn't wish this pain on anyone. But I will not begrudge steffy one ounce of joy that she's feeling today. Yeah, I can't be a mother to my daughter, but I can at least find some peace in knowing that a sweet, innocent little child has found someone to be a wonderful, loving mother.
Steffy: Kelly still sleeping?
Taylor: Yeah. Put this one on phoebe's crib.
Steffy: Oh, it's perfect. I love that they're gonna grow up together sharing a room, just like phoebe and I did.
Taylor: Oh, yes. Whispering all night long. Going under the covers with a flashlight, telling secrets.
Steffy: We did that more often than you knew.
Taylor: Oh, yes. I know.
Steffy: [ Chuckles ]
Taylor: I knew it. I just used to love standing outside of your bedroom door, and just listening to you two little girls giggle.
[ Chuckles ] You're giving them such a wonderful gift. Just such a lifetime of memories.
Steffy: I feel like I've been given a gift. And I love her so much, mom.
[ Knock on door ]
Liam: Sorry. I know -- I know it's nap time.
Steffy: Oh, liam, what are you doing here?
Liam: Ridge told me
[Chuckling] You signed the adoption papers and you were bringing phoebe home.
Liam: I just -- I can't believe you did it. Kelly has a little sister now.
Taylor: Isn't she precious?
Liam: She's beautiful.
Taylor: Yeah. They're so fortunate to have each other.
Liam: I think kelly and phoebe are gonna have a -- a wonderful life together.
Taylor: Well, we all will. And you're part of that, liam. So, I will let you guys all get acquainted.
Liam: [ Chuckles ]
Taylor: I'll be in here if you need me.
Liam: Thanks. Wow.
[ Sighs ] So, how does it feel, mother of two?
Steffy: Mm... pretty overwhelming.
[ Chuckles ] And it's just the first day. I mean, ridge said your mom would be helping.
Steffy: Yeah, she's -- she's done so much. I wanted to give kelly a sister from the moment she was born. And my mom made it happen.
Liam: Well, you're the reason this makes sense. I mean, I -- I can see already the way that you love her. It'S... I think kelly and phoebe are really, really lucky to have a chance to grow up together. I mean, that is... it's a gift, steffy. That's your gift to them, and... it's the first of many.
Steffy: [ Scoffs ]
Liam: [ Sighs ] They have such an adventure ahead, don't they?
[ Phoebe fusses ]
Steffy: Would you like to hold her?
Steffy: Yeah. Here. Yeah.
Liam: There we go. Hi, phoebe. Oh, boy.
Steffy: You know, she is... she is my baby. I adopted her. But my mom is right -- you have a place here. We're family. You're phoebe's father, too.
Liam: [ Sobs ]
Steffy: [ Exhales softly ]
