YEAR ONE: the [name_u]Rivers[/name_u] adopt Xiuying who is 15; she gets a part-time job

YEAR TWO: the family gets into a conflict with an extended family member on Lucy’s side; Xiuying takes up needlepoint

YEAR THREE: [name_f]Lucy[/name_f] has a baby, Allastair [name_m]Tobias[/name_m] [name_u]Rivers[/name_u], named after his grandpas; Allastair grows more attached to [name_m]Tobias[/name_m] than [name_f]Lucy[/name_f], which causes [name_f]Lucy[/name_f] some grief; Xiuying makes a new friend named [name_u]Jonah[/name_u] Callington.

YEAR FOUR: the family adopts a [name_m]Bombay[/name_m] cat called Winston; Allastair picks up the nickname [name_m]Buddy[/name_m] and ends up being called that more than his real name; Xiuying has a baby girl named [name_f]Molly[/name_f] Samantha; [name_f]Molly[/name_f] swallows a coin on [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] [name_f]Eve[/name_f] and the family spends the evening in the ER getting her x-rayed, but she was perfectly fine.

YEAR SIX: [name_f]Lucy[/name_f] has a baby boy named [name_m]Colin[/name_m] [name_u]Everett[/name_u] who spends 6 weeks in the NICU. After coming home from the NICU, [name_m]Colin[/name_m] exhibits a fear of loud noises and cries at anything from the neighbor’s dog barking to planes flying overhead. Xiuying takes up sewing and begins making clothes for all of the kids in the family; Allastair does not like the clothes she makes for him, but [name_f]Molly[/name_f] adores her new princess dresses made by her mummy.

YEAR SEVEN: With all of the stresses of life, [name_f]Lucy[/name_f] becomes addicted to smoking nicotine; After months of rigorous treatment/therapy, she manages to break the cycle. The family discovers that [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] is an introvert at heart and prefers to play by herself than with the rest of her siblings. It is also discovered that [name_m]Colin[/name_m] is allergic to dogs after the family dog-sits for a neighbor.

YEAR EIGHT: The family takes a small holiday to the nearby city of Bournemouth UK for a beach trip. [name_f]Molly[/name_f] develops night terrors that plague her for a few months, but after some therapy she seems to have mostly grown out of them at the end of the year. [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] bonds a lot with [name_m]Alastair[/name_m] this year and never wants to leave his side, which is unusual for the little introvert who always likes to play alone.

YEAR NINE: [name_f]Lucy[/name_f] and [name_m]Tobias[/name_m] adopt a newborn baby girl named [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u], who was given up by her parents when she was born with Down’s Syndrome. [name_f]Molly[/name_f] develops a close relationship with her newly discovered grandmother on her dad’s side. Allastair’s learning environment does not work well with his learning style so he switches classrooms within his school. [name_m]Colin[/name_m] breaks his wrist while playing on the playground at the park over the summer and has to wear a cast for most of the year.

YEAR TEN: [name_f]Lucy[/name_f] has an unexpected baby girl named [name_f]Willa[/name_f] [name_f]Delphine[/name_f]. Xiuying begins a serious relationship with [name_m]Abner[/name_m] [name_m]Zebulon[/name_m] Lawrence; by the end of the year, they are engaged. [name_m]Colin[/name_m] develops nightmares that keep the family up at night for several months; therapy does not seem to work much but finally they reach a breakthrough with keeping a sleep diary and restructuring his nighttime schedule. [name_f]Violet[/name_f] develops symptoms of a previously undiagnosed heart defect; thankfully they are able to catch it in time before it develops severe side-effects and two surgeries successfully fix the issue.

[name_f]Betsy[/name_f] and [name_m]Erik[/name_m]
Year 1: [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] gets a promotion at work
Year 2: During a meteor shower, [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] gives birth to twins: a boy named [name_m]Donovan[/name_m] [name_m]Adam[/name_m] Mittag and a girl named [name_f]Siena[/name_f] [name_u]Delaney[/name_u] Mittag. [name_m]Donovan[/name_m] will grow up to be serious and dependable, and [name_f]Siena[/name_f] will grow up to be determined and caring.
Year 3: [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] gets into a fight with her brother Angus; however, the conflict is resolved by the end of the year. [name_m]Donovan[/name_m] swallows a coin and has to get an X-ray. [name_f]Siena[/name_f] develops separation anxiety.
Year 4: The family goes on vacation! They take a short trip to a beach house in Massachusetts for a few days. Later in the year, [name_m]Donovan[/name_m] hurts himself badly on the playground, breaking his arm and needing to be taken to the ER. Given that this happened under Uncle Angus’ watch, the conflict between him and [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] temporarily resurfaces. [name_f]Siena[/name_f] loves playing outside
Year 5: [name_m]Erik[/name_m] and [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] adopt a dog! The dog is a mutt named [name_u]Rudy[/name_u]. [name_m]Donovan[/name_m] and [name_f]Siena[/name_f] begin to develop a close relationship, and [name_f]Siena[/name_f] develops an interest in coloring.
Year 6: [name_u]Rudy[/name_u] is so much fun for the family, but [name_m]Erik[/name_m] and [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] worry that he is lonely, so they adopt another dog! This one is another mutt named [name_f]Lupita[/name_f]. [name_m]Donovan[/name_m] gets into a fight with [name_u]Vernon[/name_u], one of his classmates at preschool. [name_f]Siena[/name_f] has an imaginary friend who is a unicorn named [name_u]Marie[/name_u].
Year 7: The gene for twins must be in the family, because [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] has twins again! Two girls: [name_f]Natasha[/name_f] [name_f]Ruth[/name_f] Mittag and [name_f]Hilda[/name_f] [name_f]Marilyn[/name_f] Mittag. In a strange twist of fate, they are born on the other twins’ birthday, so all the kids share a birthday. [name_f]Natasha[/name_f] will grow up to be a brilliant perfectionist, and [name_f]Hilda[/name_f] will grow up to be social and fun-loving. [name_m]Donovan[/name_m] develops his own imaginary friend- another unicorn, this one named [name_m]Kylo[/name_m]. [name_f]Siena[/name_f] continues to develop her interest in coloring and unfortunately falls very sick during this time, but she makes a complete recovery.
Year 8: The Mittag family falls victim to a scam and suffers financially, which is hard on the family. [name_m]Donovan[/name_m] is having trouble in school with art (of all the things!). [name_f]Siena[/name_f], due to her close relationship with him, tries to help him as best she can. [name_f]Natasha[/name_f] develops a fear of loud noises. [name_f]Hilda[/name_f] befriends [name_f]Anita[/name_f], one of the other kids at daycare, and they will be friends for life.
Year 9: [name_m]Erik[/name_m] gets promoted, which helps offset the losses from the scam last year. [name_m]Donovan[/name_m] becomes resentful of all the attention the new twins are getting, and a rivalry begins to develop between him and them. [name_f]Siena[/name_f] decides she wants her ears pierced, and successfully convinces [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] to take her to the mall to get them done. [name_f]Natasha[/name_f] is diagnosed as being allergic to milk. [name_f]Hilda[/name_f] develops a fear of animals, even though [name_u]Rudy[/name_u] and [name_f]Lupita[/name_f] are the most gentle dogs.
Year 10: [name_f]Hilda[/name_f] has gotten over her fear of animals, and now everyone wants yet another pet! But there’s no more room in the house for another dog, so [name_m]Erik[/name_m] and [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] make the executive decision to adopt a cat. The new cat in the Mittag household is a hairless cat named [name_m]Humphrey[/name_m]. [name_m]Donovan[/name_m] gets diagnosed with dyscalculia. [name_f]Siena[/name_f] does really well in [name_f]English[/name_f] class. [name_f]Natasha[/name_f] makes friends with [name_f]Maris[/name_f], one of her classmates at preschool. Then, it is discovered that [name_f]Hilda[/name_f] is probably not yet ready to go on to kindergarten and will have to go to preschool for another year.

About us:
-we met through mutual friends and immediately felt a spark
-after we married, we moved to [name_u]Dublin[/name_u], [name_u]Ireland[/name_u]

First 10 years:

Year 1: We both shared dreams for a house full of children and pets so we kept trying for a baby and it was successful. I had a planned pregnancy and I gave birth to a boy. His name is [name_m]Matthias[/name_m] [name_u]Theo[/name_u] [name_m]Hansen[/name_m]!

Year 2: After having [name_m]Matthias[/name_m], I fall pregnant again, this time unexpectedly with triplets! The pregnancy is hard but the joy afterwards is big, we welcome home [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_u]Sinclair[/name_u] [name_m]Hansen[/name_m], [name_u]Daniel[/name_u] [name_u]Ezra[/name_u] [name_m]Hansen[/name_m] and [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] [name_m]Hansen[/name_m]! [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] was born bigger than usual and [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] had to spend a couple of weeks in the NICU but everything turned out fine at the end.

Year 3: We get into a conflict with Aron’s uncle, who wants to visit us and sleep at our place even though we don’t know him well enough to let him that close to us.

Year 4: Me and [name_m]Aron[/name_m] pick up a hobby together - candle making.

Year 5: We adopt a female American Curl cat named [name_f]Frida[/name_f].

Year 6: We have been approved to adoption and we adopted a baby girl. Her name is [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_f]Greta[/name_f] [name_m]Hansen[/name_m]! She was born with a full head of hair.

Year 7: I’ve become pregnant again, this time with twin boys. Our family welcomes [name_u]August[/name_u] [name_u]Reed[/name_u] [name_m]Hansen[/name_m] and [name_u]Harry[/name_u] [name_u]George[/name_u] [name_m]Hansen[/name_m]! [name_u]August[/name_u] was born smaller than usual.

Year 8: We become a foster mom and dad to a 5-year-old girl, named [name_f]Saskia[/name_f] [name_f]Fenna[/name_f] [name_m]Fletcher[/name_m]. At the end of our foster care we grow really attached to her and adopt her.

I’m [name_u]Ilia[/name_u] [name_u]Sasha[/name_u] Miyama, 21 years old and would describe my personality as friendly and fast-paced (ESTP). I am currently in school to become an architect by the time I’m 22. I grew up in the city Winnipeg, [name_f]Canada[/name_f].
I’m married to [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Zev[/name_m] [name_m]Chen[/name_m]. He’s 23 years old. He just started his new job as a detective. His personality comes the closest to determined and caring (INFJ). He grew up in the suburbs of Saskatoon, [name_f]Canada[/name_f] with his never-together parents.
We now live together in the suburbs of Toronto, [name_f]Canada[/name_f]. Follow along for the first 10 years of our marriage!

Year 1: In our first year of marriage we volunteer as foster parents to a sibling set of six. Their ages range between 9 and 5: nine-year-old [name_m]Casper[/name_m], eight-year-old [name_u]Storm[/name_u], seven-year-old [name_u]Romy[/name_u], six-year-old [name_m]Daley[/name_m] and five-year-old twins [name_f]Tess[/name_f] and [name_f]Lara[/name_f]. We continue fostering them for the whole year.
Year 2: Halfway into the year, we learn that our foster children will all be placed with their aunt and uncle that live a little north to Toronto. We’re so happy they all get to stay together! We still visit them often. We also obtain a moderate amount of money by winning a small lottery, how lucky.
Year 3: We decide to start a hobby together, we pick painting.
Year 4: We go on a trip together to a national park. The nature there is wonderful.
Year 5: For our five year anniversary we adopt a cat. It’s a [name_u]Devon[/name_u] [name_u]Rex[/name_u]. We name him [name_f]Clemence[/name_f].
Year 6: I get pregnant unexpectedly. We’ve been trying for a while now and nothing really has happened. We’re really happy to welcome our first son into the world. We name him [name_m]Lysander[/name_m] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] Miyama-Chen. [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] is after Oscar’s father.
Year 7: Now that we know we can conceive successfully, we try soon after [name_m]Lysander[/name_m] turns 6 months. We’re quite immediately lucky and have fraternal boy twins! We name our second son [name_m]Finnian[/name_m] [name_u]Tate[/name_u] Miyama-Chen and our third son [name_m]Rufus[/name_m] [name_u]Blaine[/name_u] Miyama-Chen. Both their middle names are after places close to Oscar’s hometown. These places have a special place in his heart.
Year 8: Having three children so close in age has definitely been a struggle for us. This is expressed in our relationship. Thankfully we work it out before anything significant happens.
Year 9: We have a baby unexpectedly, we didn’t want to have a baby so close to our struggling, but our fourth son is obviously more than welcome! We name him [name_u]Everest[/name_u] [name_m]Laszlo[/name_m] Miyama-Chen. [name_m]Laszlo[/name_m] is after my brother [name_m]Laszlo[/name_m].
Year 10: We adopt a dog: a [name_u]Golden[/name_u] Retriever. We name him [name_m]Wulfric[/name_m].

[name_m]Lysander[/name_m] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] Miyama-Chen (4)
[name_m]Lysander[/name_m] is our first son. He was born in year 6 of our marriage. He was a very welcome surprise after having trouble conceiving. He was born on Valentine’s [name_u]Day[/name_u], so [name_u]February[/name_u] 14th. His personality is friendly and fast-paced (ESTP), like his mother.
• When [name_m]Lysander[/name_m] is three-years-old he develops a childhood fear for monsters. He also develops a very close relationship with his brother [name_u]Everest[/name_u], who was born in that same year.

[name_m]Finnian[/name_m] [name_u]Tate[/name_u] Miyama-Chen (3)
[name_m]Finnian[/name_m] and his twin brother [name_m]Rufus[/name_m] were born in year 7 of our marriage. He’s 18 minutes older than then [name_m]Rufus[/name_m].
