Going in order of oldest to youngest.

Shezarae is really, really happy right now. Her Mommy Kana had a good birthday, and so did I. She's currently visiting with her Mommy Kana, along with Tetresuv, and the two are delighted to hear their Mommy Kana tell another one of her tales. Kana does very well with that. She's coming out of her shell more and is fully as energetic as Kammie is.

Valzon is his usual happy self, tempered quite a bit by what's been going on lately, but not excessively so. Having Kashori with him makes it easier on him, and he's intensely protective of her. She is his only blood-kin that is in regular interaction with him, the surviving members of the Ri family and I do not yet have any agreements as to that. Probably won't for a while. He's a love of singing.

Merehaza is really, really extroverted and witty. I like watching him interact with people. He's pretty sassy, though Meremi and I ensure sassiness does not become rudeness. He's become quite attached to me. O.o

Kameshi is extroverted, too, and is very much the girliest one in the family. Despite that, when one of the other kids around called Shezzie a mushmouth because of that hardened injury on her face, Kammie got into a rather vicious fight. She takes protecting her siblings very seriously indeed. She's as attached to Meremi as Merehaza has become to me. Mere and I are amused by that.

Vi M and Agati H are both pursuing their types of art quite deeply. I am convinced Agati H may be a seer like Meremi, albeit his would be more sculpting-like, akin to Rachel in other words. Agati H also spends a lot of time with his Gampa.

Kashori is age-slid and is proving to be one of the quiest, most observant children of the family. She's also one of the most clever. A real idealist and optimist. She's a lightly-furred appearance like Valzon and the same six-eyed structure he does.

Tetresuv is Kana's son, and has my roundness of face but an overall appearance quite like that of his great-grandfather, Soroundon H'ven Diatrael. He's shale eyes and is quite athletic himself, with a mastery of words that is on par with that of Valzon and Kashori.

Tekhel....I do not get to see him much. It pains me that I don't. I don't have Kana's courage to argue with deities.

Tharnoir is well cared for by Revvy. She gives him devotion and patience, and gives him regular visits to our house.

Alkhani has colic and is intensely needy. Moreso than the other children. Keeps us up the most, and because she cries a lot, so do the other beh-behs.

Shaltani and Kezhani, by contrast, are extremely well-behaved, even if they are often hungry. They sleep peacefully and often give empathic vibes that can soothe Alkhani. Gods be thanked for that. They've the silver eyes and light silver hair like Susan had before she went evil. And like the Good-Susan does.

Suvacel's two other children by me leave the artificial uteri tomorrow to come here. They are also daughters and I've named one of them Zehani and the other Sheklani.

That's how it is with the children at present. While Tetresuv and Kashori were able to age-slide, I'm still going to be feeding, changing, and caring for Alkhani, Shaltani, Kezhani, Zhehani, and Sheklani. It's going to be a lot, but Gods willing I shall manage it.

I will be doing portal sketches about Valzon coming back to live with me permanently, about my meeting Kameshi, her being adopted legally, and her first meeting with her Aunt Rachel, and about the return of Shezarae and Merehaza into our lives.

This is the first one, about the day that Valzon came back. As a bit of background, the House of Mi and the House of Ri are pretty bitter enemies, and Hevenemi, Meremi's father, does not have much taste for Masadri's kin. That changed after this.

It was just another oncology scan. I had been praying that the results would be negative, when I heard Meremi speaking to someone. She turned off the Sim-Screen and said "Vi, your aunt has said your son will be coming to see you. I look forward to meeting him." Hearing those words the butterflies in my stomach stopped fluttering and I looked with my six eyes into Meremi's two. There was a monitoring drone releasing the light hissing of its anti-grav engine flying by, and it saw a couple of children in a scrap. It beeped and told them "Kids, please quit that, I'm supposed to be on an off day, not having overtime." They straightened up and did so.

Meremi's beautiful blue eyes looked into me, and I saw compassion in them. She saw my nervousness in mine and took my hands in hers. She looked me in my eyes, all six of them, and said "Love, I've told you of Merehaza, have I not?" And I nodded. Calmer now. My heart stopped its slightly-faster rating due to that fear and she said "I would never judge you for that. When I was hurt.....I lost any chance to have my first child as I had thought it would be. Merehaza......I long to have my son back, and I will look forward to it. This boy's father means no more to me than he is half his DNA."

I then heard the door chimes make their light tinkling sound. Ling-a-ling-a-ling. My Aunt Keshri stood there, holding her son on her hip. She gestured to Valzon, who was a little bashful. He had his Autin heritage in terms of his facial features, greenish fur with a reddish hue to the skin beneath it. He had his thumb in his mouth and he had his right foot over his left foot. His six shale eyes, a feature I had myself were looking around, kind of nervously. Aunt Keshri squatted down and said "It's all right, little one. Your mother's over there." And he looked up.

Imperial waiting rooms are sterile places. There's reading material, which often reflects the socioeconomic status and political biases and prejudices of the doctor. My particular oncologist is a Syndicalist, and had much material from the Gerushunai Popular League there. The rooms tend to be a neutral color, which means to human eyes they appear white. The chair Mere sat in and the one I sat in both had seating material of a deep orange color, and the carpeting was of a yellow color. Valzon, his greenish-black fur shining in the globe-lights, looked where Aunt Keshri was pointing. By the window he saw me, that day wearing a red blouse and a pink skirt, with a silver trimming on the blouse and the skirt.

His face lit up with joy, and he squeed and shouted "Mommy!" and the drone shushed everyone who grumbled about it with a sudden flashing of red which made them STFU. And he flew, literally, into my arms. And I held my boy, who cooed happily for a second and then looked at Meremi. She was rather nervous, as she knew he saw the Mi family markings on her, but he said something which warmed her heart "You found the one you were looking for! YAY!" and he squeed and gestured to her to hug him. And she did. He noticed her Trarh-Khan bulk and facial-structure, as well as her bipedalism and said something else: "You half-Autin, too?" And Meremi nodded. And he squeed again and said "Mommy loves you?" and she smiled, looked at me and said "Oh, yes." And Valzon squeed once more and said "This is totally frickin' awesome." And then the door chimed and my oncologist gestured me in.

And I went into the office, with Meremi to my right, and we had Valzon walking between us, a big happy smile on his face. Out of the corner of my middle-left eye I noticed one of the Xenten patients making a "D'aww" face and smiled. It had passed over us.
