Range Valley – Round 7 – Shibata

Welcome back to Range Valley, population 817.

The Shibatas have just moved into a large house, and are ready to start their own family. Currently, Range Valley lacks the technology to allow same sex couples to have biological children together, but that doesn’t bother Mackenzie and Leila. They are more than happy to adopt.

Which Leila goes and applies for straight away.

In order to make a little more money before the baby arrives, the Shibatas head down to Bump, Baby and Beyond, and bring it up to level 7.

Meet Amity Shibata! The social worker brings this baby girl, and the Shibatas are overjoyed with their new addition.

So, weird thing about adopted babies. They arrive at 10, but they are ready to grow up at 6. So they’re not babies for long. Amity has her birthday a bit later that day, and grows into a beautiful little girl.

Mackenzie and Leila want to adopt again, and so Mackenzie makes the call.

Amity is a clever little thing, and is normally to be found at her play table.

This time, the Shibata family are placed with another baby girl. Meet Katrien Shibata.

And meet Katrien again. She’s not as cute as Amity, but she has her charms.

Leila and Mackenzie make time for each other, still, and are very affectionate.

Leila starts writing to bring in a little more money. She is a stay at home mother, as Mackenzie is quickly climbing the ranks of the athletic career. As a reminder, both women want to send three children to college, so their careers are just a means to an end.

Amity quickly picks up her skills, and nursery rhymes.

Just in time for her birthday! Look at that lovely little face!

Amity grows into a very pretty child.

Leila heads down to B, B & B again, and invites Mackenzie to join her once she is there. We need a little more money, and so she starts selling the grandfather clock at a very expensive markup.

“What does a grandfather clock have to do with pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood?”

“It says ‘grandfather’ in the name. Duh.”

“Oh, of course! I’ll have ten.”

Leila meets Linnea whilst working. The twins share a hug, and more baby pictures, and agree to talk again tonight, as per usual.

Back home, Amity catches a fish, and is very proud of herself.

“Mum! Get the camera!”

The little family is very close. And Mackenzie sulks as she puts an arm right through the crib.

“Mrs Shibata?”

“Yes, I am one of those.”

“Would you be open to adopting another child? We have a child in mind who needs a home.”

“Of course. Any particular reason you came to us?”

“Well, Range Valley seems to be very accepting of children like this. And our files indicate that one of the Mrs. Shibatas is half alien, so…”

“Ah, got it. Of course, we have plenty of room.”

“Thank you, Mrs. Shibata. Your new arrival will be with you tomorrow.”
