B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Hope tells Brooke and Ridge that Dr. Lin and Dr. Buckingham explained what happened to Beth but not why. Taylor meets Reese at the restaurant to hand over the money. They discuss how happy Steffy is now with this adorable daughter. She wants to thank him again. He says nothing is more important than family. The meeting is brief as she wants to get back home before Steffy does. Indeed when Steffy does the house is all decorated in pink balloons and banners. Taylor says it is a blessing for both of them. The thug and big boss come and Reese hands over the money in a steel suitcase and tells them it is all there, so lay off his daughter now. Mr. Thicke says he did not want to do it this way but Reese was not paying so he had no choice…..pleasure doing business until next time. Reese says there will not be a next time (sure, sure). Paying for his drink, he thinks one more time of the night with Hope and taking Beth and showing Hope a dead baby. And the questions she just asked a day before.

Hope assures all that she is okay with Steffy’s adoption giving a beautiful baby a good home and with Liam as a father. He should go and be with her now. He says the right thing by saying he does not feel right leaving her and she reminds him that he and Steffy are family too. Liam drops in unannounced and surprises Steffy. He says of course he would come when she brought Phoebe home. Taylor leaves them alone. He asks how she feels now being a mother of two. Steffy says great and her mom is helping so much. He says it is a gift for Kelly to be growing up with this adventure of a sister. She asks if he would like to hold her and of course he beams that he would. Though a million things must be going through his mind about another baby, he looks at her so lovingly. Steffy says she knows she adopted her but her mother is correct, Liam is her father too. They are family and always will be.
