We had a great time in BC, and we are sure it would not have been so much fun had we not settled the baby issue. Back then Baby S was known as Child 2, since JJ was Child 1. We actually spent well over a year referring to our daughter as Child 2. We are such creative types. Being in Vancouver really made us miss the diversity of Southern California. The area where we lived then was devoid of color,and we knew that we would not be able to raise our daughter there. After Vancouver we took the ferry to Victoria and did more sightseeing and camping, while talking about Child 2.
This may come across as mean today, but he was alive (and fair game) in 2004.
