Last week in the Barthalet household the family adopted child #8 and 9 Jack and Melanie, Madeline became a child and then a teen, Audry, Abram and Michael became teens, Joseph and Sophia became elders, Abram had a brush with death and was saved by his mother, and Audry and Abram left for uni.
This week started with the family reaching a huge milestone. They adopted their 10th child, toddler Thomas fullfilling Sophia's IW.
Sophia thought that diapers and bottles were behind her, but when she met Thomas, he charmed he so that she couldn't imagine not adding him to thier family and she was glad that she did.
Little Jack had made a friend in neighbor Elsa Cedar. And it was no wonder he was starting to take an intrest in the girls...
It was time for his birthday!

Happy Birthday Jack!
Jack quickly took a job in the medical field and soon reached TOC in his teen career.
His older brother Michael also found success in his teen career as a gamer.
Sister Madeline also held a teen job in the cullinary field, but found herself more into meeting and spending time with the boys than working to reach TOC.
It wasn't long until she had her first kiss with townie Kennedy Day...but unsure how serious she wanted to get was soon onto another boy the next day.
