He informs her for the first time that the previous day, Durant informed him that he would represent his daughter in divorce proceedings.

Unaware that Jason contacted Courtney, she asks him why. He explains that Courtney has first-hand knowledge about adoption procedures. Courtney informs them that shes talked to Bridget and Bridget has agreed to let Sam and Jason adopt her baby, but also warns them that Bridget has legal rights as the natural mother and can change her mind and take the baby at a later time, whether they like it or not. But Courtney and Jason can see that Sam has grown very attached and possessive of the baby. Sam protests that Bridget cannot be a mother to the baby and has given up her rights. She says she can give this baby everything she needs and doesnt see any other way.
Courtney goes to meet Bridget with Sam and Jason and the baby. Bridget says she did not expect them to bring the baby. Courtney replies that she thought it would be good for her to be able to see that the baby is doing well. Bridget talks about how she has no means to provide for the baby. Sam and Jason assure her that they can give the baby everything she needs. Courtney plays devils advocate by telling Bridget of the resources she can offer her with daycare for the baby and for Bridgets own needs. Bridget concludes that she realizes she cannot offer her baby anything and that is why shes giving her to Sam. But she asks to hold the baby so she can say good-bye. Bridget reveals to them that shes still under the mistaken impression that Sams baby lived when she tells her baby that she will have a good home with Sam and a little sister for her. Sam tells Bridget that she apologizes but did not tell her that her baby died. She admits she did not want to inform her of something so negative when she was giving birth. Hearing that, Bridget concludes that Sam lied to her and may simply want her baby as a replacement. Sam also informs Bridget that she and Jason are not married but they are both very qualified and experienced in taking care of a baby. It sounds like Bridget is ok with that for the moment and has not changed her mind yet. Bridget gives the baby to Sam and asks her to tell her shes pretty and to always give her a birthday party. Sam promises she will. Sam and Jason leave. Sensing Bridgets expression of doubt after hearing that Sam does not have another child nor is she married, Courtney asks Bridget if shes certain that this is what she wants to do.

He tells her nothing makes him happier than observing how happy she is with the baby but she must understand the reality they are facing with adopting her under these circumstances. She says she understands if he does not want to go through with this. He tells her its not that. Hes just worried about what it would do to her if Bridget were to change her mind.
