Entitled to Thrive
The biggest lie told two couples is love is patient. It's a lesson well learned when you and the love of your life stand on two separate sides of a critical issue. In that case, love become scary and vulnerable.
Lauren and Ryan are the All-American couple that have worked hard to achieve everything they have ever dreamed of, so it causes a rift between them when they discover their friend has been killed and they have been named the legal guardian of his daughter, Lulu.
Ryan is ready to start enjoying the freedom of having almost independent children, not adopt a child from the other side of the world, especially one that they have never met. He wasn't even sure he was capable of loving a child that wasn't his . . . until he set eyes on Lulu.
Lauren fell in love the minute she heard she was going to be a mom again. In her opinion, it was no different than the minute she found out she was pregnant. For her, Lulu is theirs to nurture and protect.
Love is about being in sync; a little bit of give and take. But above all else, it's about respect. It's not about talking; it's about listening.
Ryan and Lauren thought their biggest challenge would be teaching Lulu about the rights every woman should have, something she wouldn't have had in her birth country. They never expected intolerance at every turn.
Love should fill the gaps, are not create bigger ones. Platonic love, self-love, romantic love, and love of mankind, the couple experience of four. But, is there ever a time one should supersede the others? How will they survive when they learn love is as fragile as the web they have weaved?
