Neither of us are ready for the responsibility of raising a child, not just yet. The opportunity won’t be missed, either, because my sister’s eggs are already in stasis, so it’s only a matter of gathering samples from Sherlock. Assuming that’s the route we wish to take. I always promised myself that I’d adopt, to be quite honest with you. There are already so many children in the world that are in desperate need of a family to look after them.
