Characters/Pairings: Brennan, Angela, Cam, and a brief appearance by Hodgins
Word Count: 1,197
Spoilers: Up to the end of the sixth season, which is where my canon departs.
Summary: This fic fulfills a topic I always wanted to see addressed during the 7th season, but never did: Brennan becoming a mom, with all its implied joyfulness, while grieving her own.
Author's Note: I'm not a mother myself, but I lost my own mom three & a half years ago, and her birthday is this Monday. I dedicate this story to her memory & to everyone else out there who knows how it feels.
