He heard that there was some glitch with Lizzys paperwork. Julius guesses that until she signs the papers the adoption isnt legal. Nicole claims it is just a technicality.
Coco feels that this possible infertility issue is messing with Nicole. She thinks that she is starting to spiral from it. One minute, she is saying that Rick and Maya are Lizzys parents.

Julius doesnt want Nicole to pretend to be strong and put up a front. He can see she is struggling. He wants to help wherever he can. Nicole feels it is like she has been hit all at once. Everything was fine. She was happy and rounded. She was Lizzys aunt. Then the doctors said that she was damaged inside. That she might never be able to have another child. Nicole wants a chance to be a real mother. She asks what happens if Lizzy is her only chance to be a mother. She wants to keep Lizzy with her. Nicole doesnt think her feelings make any sense. Julius thinks that she is concerned because Lizzy is her daughter. Julius doesnt think that Maya is Lizzys daughter. Nicole is. The adoption isnt legal. Julius recognizes the bond. He has seen the bond. Lizzy knows she is her mother.
Rick cannot believe that Nicole will not sign. Maya assumes she needs time. Her sister is going through a very challenging time. She is processing things. She feels terrible for her. Rick thinks that Lizzy is their daughter. Maya knows but she doesnt want to push Nicole. Rick thinks that this is Lizzy they are talking about. This is their legal right to their child. Rick is going to get the papers signed.
Julius feels that Nicole is a natural mother. Nicole doesnt need to hear this right now. Julius feels that this is exactly why it is happening right now. All of a sudden Lizzys adoption isnt official. She is Lizzys mother. It doesnt change anything. He doesnt want her to sign the papers.
Coco thinks that Zende can count on her. Nicole needs all the love and support she can get. Zende is glad to know what Nicole is thinking. He enjoys having Coco as Nicoles friend. He doesnt think Nicole needs to be pressured.
Rick walks into the Design office and demands Nicole the sign the papers. He asks if she has any idea what she has done to her sister. Rick knows she is giving Nicole the benefit of the doubt. He knows his wife. He asks what kind of game she is playing. Rick has been Lizzys constant along with Maya. Day after day. Month after month. They are Lizzys world. He asks if she has even thought about her once. Nicole has only been thinking of her. He doesnt know what it is like to care for her. She does. She gave her away. She found out she might never be able to have another child. Rick understands she is scared about her future but she could still have a child. Miracles happen. Rick will be there for her but no matter what she is struggling with right now, she is not Lizzys mother. He is her father and Maya is her mother. That has been the case since the beginning. She needs to do the right thing and sign the papers. Rick will not have his daughter taken away. It is never going to happen.
