INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - DAY
Late May, 1975
Judy sits up in bed with two little blanket wrapped bundles
in her arms. One is a pink blanket, the other is a blue
blanket. Kyle stands beside the bed, smiling broadly.
They're absolutely beautiful,
darling, like their mommy. as for
the names, are we going to go with
the ones we decided on before they
were born? Mom says that sometimes
a baby just doesn't look like the
name that was decided on. I was
originally going to be called
steven, but I guess I looked more
like a Kyle.
I think the names fit them pretty
well. Colin Kyle David Maxwell,
and Marjorie Colleen Estelle
Maxwell. Since Marjorie is my
mom's name, and Colin is my dad's
name,that pretty much covers the
When will your parents be coming
home from their mission in
Honduras? It must have been
difficult for you when they were
called away as missionaries when
you were just seventeen.
It was, but I had my sister Sylvia
to help me. She let me stay with
her and her husband Cliff. I
could have gone to live in
Honduras, but I wanted to stay
here. I was so lucky to get that
dispatch job at the station right
off the bat. Mom and dad will be
here to see the twins next month.
I'm betting their first words will
INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - LATER
David and Emily enter the room. Emily is carrying seven
month old Daniel.
Hi Judy. How are you feeling? I
can't wait to see my new niece
and nephew. Here honey, you take
little linebacker here. I need to
see these babies' faces!
Linebacker? Do you think that's
the career that Danny is headed
for? He's certainly big enough,
and that's what his fraternal
grandfather was. Did you ever
pursue that branch of your family
No, I just looked him up in the
sports archives at the library.
He was an Ottawa Roughrider, so
he wasn't hard to find. I looked
him up in Charlotte's old
yearbooks, too. There's even a
couple of pictures of her and
Daniel Cassidy. I actually do
look a lot like he did then. He
died from a brain embolism,
probably from having his head
banged around so much on the
What about children, did he have
any besides you?
A boy four years younger, and a
girl seven years younger than me.
I'm not going to look them up
though, what would be the point?
It would just disrupt their lives
for no good reason. Besides, Kyle
and Joanie are as good as it gets
in the way of siblings, so why
look for more?
Joanie will be here as soon as she
finishes her shift at smiths Falls
Hospital. Now that she's the part
time head nurse in the
afternoons, she'll have more time
to spend with their baby when it's
born in September.
I was so thrilled when she told us
in February that she was pregnant.
All of the cousins are going to be
close in age. She already thinks
it's a girl. She isn't anywhere
near as big as you were at the
same stage for David.It could be
just a smaller boy, but it isn't
likely. A mom knows. I knew it
was twins by the third month.
