    Your name is Jennifer Anna "Jenny" Fitzroy. You are 20 years old, living in New York and in your final year studying laws. You have just started seeing a 24 year old guy called Leo Henry MacKenzie. He works as a pediatrician and you feel so lucky to have found someone who understands you the way he does. A month into your friendship, you find out you're pregnant with your friend's baby. You had a drunken one night stand with him a few weeks before you started seeing your boyfriend. Your friend, Alec William Thomas, agrees to support you and the baby, but you both agree you don't want a relationship. You're happy with your boyfriend who has agreed to help you raise the baby and your friend has just started seeing someone. You, your boyfriend and your friend come up with a co-parenting agreement that works for the three of you. Six months later, you move in with your boyfriend and he's there with you when you give birth to a beautiful baby girl. Her first name is related to astrology and her middle name is a classic name. You name her Luna Elizabeth Thomas.

    You graduated two months before giving birth, but instead of looking for a job, you decide to dedicate the next few months to your daughter. Over the next few years, she grows into a feisty, strong-minded toddler. When she's two, you decide to go back to work. You get a job as a lawyer, which is perfect to ease you back into working life. With you bringing in some extra money, you and your boyfriend decide it's the right time to move. You'd been living in a two bedroomed apartment above a shoe shop, but you want to move into something more family friendly. You start renting a three bedroomed house in a nicer neighbourhood. Unlike the apartment, you're allowed to have a pet in this house. You decide to get a dog. You take a trip to the rescue shelter and fall in love with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel called Laika. You bring her home and she immediately becomes a part of the family.

    A year later, your hard work pays off and you get promoted. The extra money means you and your boyfriend can afford a short holiday together. Your daughter stays with her father while you and your boyfriend go to Venice for a week.

    When your daughter is four, her father makes an announcement. He and his girlfriend, Rose Katherine Baxter, are expecting a baby. Your daughter is thrilled to be a big sister when her little brother is born. His first name is a name popular in the 1960s (after his grandfather) and his middle name is after his dad's favourite rock singer. After the birth of David Kurt Thomas, you and your boyfriend start talking. He's been a wonderful father figure to your daughter for the last four years, but he'd like his own biological child too. You start trying for a baby and three months later, you fall pregnant! On his 30th birthday, you give birth to another baby girl! Her first name is a flower name and her middle name begins with G.

    You bring Lily Gabriella MacKenzie home, and your daughter and the dog fall in love with her. When she is eight months old and your older daughter is six, your boyfriend decides he wants a change of career. After several unsuccessful interviews, he finally lands a job as a doctor. It will require him to travel to Hamburg for three months of training. He arrives back just before your youngest daughter's 1st birthday. The night he comes home, you're talking before bed and he tells you he's so thankful for you and how supportive you've been, and he asks you to marry him. Of course, you say yes. Six months later, you have a very small wedding with just your family and closest friends. A week later, you travel to Paris for your honeymoon. While there, you conceive your third child! Nine months later, you give birth to your first son, Tyler Adrien MacKenzie. His first name begins with T and his middle name is after your honeymoon destination (either the name of the country, city, or a name popular in that country).

    Your two daughters are sharing a room, but the age gap between them means that it isn't very convenient. You start looking for a bigger house in the area, but a few weeks into your search, your husband is offered a job as a doctor in Boston. It's a good job and very well paid, but you don't want to take your daughter away from her biological father. You discuss it with him and he agrees it's a fantastic opportunity. You come up with an agreement that he'll have your daughter to stay for a weekend every two months, for 4 weeks in the summer and every other Christmas. So, you and your family move to a lovely 5 bedroomed house on the outskirts of Boston. You find a job as a lawyer. And, for the next two years, life is perfect. Then, one day, your beloved dog dies. You knew she was quite old when you rescued her, but none of you were prepared for her death. The kids are devastated. Your coworker saw your Facebook status about her death and tells you she has a litter of West Highland Terrier puppies she's looking to home. You take the kids along and they pick out a lively, comical puppy who your kids name Scott. He adapts well to family life and your children adore him.

    A year later, your eldest daughter's dad has some news. He's moving to a town just 10 miles away! Such good news. Your daughter is so happy to live so close to her father and brother again, and you're glad to have an old friend nearby. You're both willing to babysit for each other when you and your spouses want a night out together. A few months after he moves closer, both your families go on holiday together to New Orleans.

    Two years later, your children are 12, seven and five. You and your husband are happy with your jobs, your children go to good schools, you have a solid social circle. Life couldn't be more perfect. You decide it's the right time to expand your family again! You take a trip to the rescue shelter to bring home another dog. You surprise your children with a husky puppy who'd been abandoned by his owners. You name him Zeus. He's a lot naughtier than your other dog, but you love him anyway.

    Four years later, your eldest daughter's dad has all the kids to stay with him while you and your husband go on a three week trip to Asia to celebrate your 10 year wedding anniversary! You're sad to leave the kids for so long, but this is something you've both wanted to do for a long time and you want to do it while you're still young. While in India, you volunteer in an orphanage where you meet two twin girls whose unmarried mother had been forced to abandon them by her family. You and your husband can't bear to leave them there. You start the proceeds to adopt them. It's a long process, but two years later, you finally bring them home. Their first names are Hindu names, but you give them both middle names that signify the journey you took to adopt them. You're so excited to introduce Chandra Hope MacKenzie and Varsha Faith MacKenzie to their new family.

    Shortly after you adopt the girls, you take your eldest daughter to settle in in Los Angeles where she's going to university to study economics. It's emotional saying goodbye to your baby, but you still have a full house with four children and two dogs. And, one day, your husband brings home a surprise. Another dog! This time, a Golden Retriever called Pipo. His co-worker was moving abroad and couldn't take the dog with him.

    On your 40th birthday, your family hold a surprise party and your eldest daughter comes home to celebrate with you. That night, as the children are asleep, you sit on the front porch with your husband and the three dogs, and feel incredibly thankful for the life you have.
