B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Taylor keeps asking Reese if this is not his baby then where did the baby come from. He apologizes and says he could not tell her over the phone. Liam shows up at Steffy’s. She senses something is wrong. He says it has been a hard day and he knows he should have called first but he would really like to see Kelly. Instead he left Hope with Brooke and he has just been riding around. Hope cries and Brooke tries to comfort her and says just lean on Liam and even others. She is thinking going to a support group probably would do her good. Steffy invites Liam in and is happy for him to see Kelly. She only had a virus so she is fine now. He says he knows he is being selfish and he wants to be strong for Hope but he came here to see his daughter yet Hope does not have that luxury. Hope tells Brooke that it is weird, the birds are in the trees and cars on the road, for them it is just another regular day. She just wants some peace. She does not feel Beth is looking down on her at all. Reese is about to answer Taylor when a lady walks out of the bedroom and introduces herself as Florence and says the baby is hers. But she cannot keep her and Reese is helping her with adoption if they can find the right home. Steffy tells Liam that she imagined it just like he did. She wanted Beth to be a sister for Kelly and she knows he and Hope would have been wonderful parents. He says now adoption is the only way for Steffy. She says a conversation for another time but she has been thinking about it. It doesn’t just happen overnight; it takes time. Now she just wants to focus on Liam and Hope and them getting better.

Brooke reminds Hope that she said she felt Beth was still with her so she will always find her in her heart, in her dreams, all sorts of places. Taylor listens and Flo tells her that Dr. Buckingham took care of everything as she fell apart. Her life has been pretty much a wreck and adoption made the most sense. Everything is now falling in place. Reese says this all happened very quickly and he had not had time to explain to her. Taylor has a sudden light bulb moment – Steffy could adopt this baby? He nods yes. Liam holds Kelly and tells her that he loves her so much. She has her whole life ahead of her and he will always be there with her. He wishes she could have met her sister but she knows Beth would want them to all be happy. Hope tells Brooke that she is supposed to be holding her baby and not her mother holding her. Brooke tells her again that she will get through this, be patient and never forget Beth and she will always know somehow that she was loved. Reese says that when Taylor told him Steffy wanted to adopt he took that seriously. Taylor said yes, she wants to look into some agencies. Reese says he thought of her right away and this opportunity won’t come along every day. Taylor says this all came out of the blue but she will talk to Steffy. He cautions her because of Hope and what just happened he thinks it best if his name is left out of this. But talk to Steffy right away. Taylor sees him look at Flo and says she will as soon as she can.
