Central Park, New York. It was the small girl chasing a pink balloon that had given Paul and Joanna the idea; to end five years of failing to conceive, and to adopt. Which is why they are travelling to the Santa Regina orphanage in Columbia, to meet their new daughter, Joelle. It is meant to be a new beginning in their lives.

Because if the delivery doesn't arrive, he'll never see his newly created family ever again more
