When it came time for Criss to leave the hospital he wanted to say good-bye to Sandy. When JD rolled him down to her room Sandy's mom was visiting. "Angel" Sandy called out when she saw Criss. "You must be the man my daughter keeps talking about" her mother stated. "You must her mom" shaking her hand. "I don't know what you've been doing but you've made my daughter so happy even thou she had to spend Christmas here"she replied. "She kind of did the same thing with me too. I also wanted to give you this" giving her an envelope. When she opened it tears started to fall down her face. "That will help you pay some bills and maybe you can quit one of your jobs so you can spend some time with your daughter" Criss stated. "I don't know what to say but I can't take this". "Please consider it my Christmas gift to you and Sandy. I have to go but I'll try to visit you Sandy" Criss remarked. "Bye Angel" she replied as JD wheeled Criss out.
When Criss got home Little Dimi was playing with Hammie. "Look who's home". Criss came in on crutchers. "Uncle Criss it's so good to see you" as Criss sat down. "Thanks Dimi where's mom and Costa?" he asked as Hammie jumped into his lap. "They're helping Christine pack up her mom's stuff at the home" Lynn stated. "I wonder what she's going to do now" JD asked. "She doesn't know" Lynn replied. At the home I was packing up some of my mom's pictures as Dimitra came back in. "Costa's almost done can I help you". "No just looking at some pictures of me and my mom when I was young" showing Dimitra. "You were a cute kid just as cute as Christopher was" she replied giving it back. "Well I should bring these home with me and Costa can take the boxes marked good will to the church or some where" I remarked wiping my tears away. Dimitra walked over to me and gave me a hug. For some reason while Dimitra hugged me I felt the same way I always did when my own mother gave me a hug. "Thanks for the help Dimitra".
"No problem come on" and we left. When I got home I checked my messages. Some hang ups, some people asking to vote for this person or that person but the last one I couldn't believe. When New Year Eve hit Lynn invited me over to watch the ball drop. At the house Criss was still on crutches but getting around pretty good. "Here we go" giving everyone popcorn. "So what time is the flight on Tuesday?" his mother asked. "Yea Dave wants to know so he can set up a meeting" JD stated. "That's what I wanted to talk about. I talked to the doctor yesterday and he sayes with the extent of the damaged tendons he doesn't want me to fly so I'm stuck here for another two weeks" Criss replied sitting down. "Felix isn't going to like this Criss"JD said. "If he doesn't like he can take it up with my doctor"Criss replied. "Thank god the repairs to the house is almost done" Dimitra said. "I kind liked having the family here"Lynn said. The door bell rang and Dimi got it. "Hey it's Christine"she stated. She opened the door and I came in with a stoller. "Hey guys look who I have". Criss turned and saw the baby. "How did you get a baby?"Dimitra inquired as Dimi took her coat.
"Well the lady at DDS called and informed me that the lady who attacked Criss and I she wouldn't stay on her medication as part of the deal of getting back her son so they took away her rights and the DDS is letting me adopt him"I replied with a huge smile on my face. "Congrates so what the kid's name?"Costa asked. "Joseph Christopher" I replied as Criss smiled. "Let me see Joseph" Dimitra inquired. I gave Dimitra the baby. "Also there's something I need to ask you and Christopher?" I asked. "What's that Christine?" Criss asked. "Well I would like it if you and your mom were Joseph's god parents and if something happens to me you'll watch over him for me"I asked. Criss got up and hobbled over to me. "I'd be delighted to be Joseph's godfather" and gave me a hug. "I would too and I'll watch over this child like I know you will"Dimitra added giving me a kiss. "Come on it's almost time" Costa remarked. We watched as the ball fell and I felt happy that it took two cats: a brother and sister to give me some great friends and a child to raise.
