Knowing that the apartment is impractical for three babies and not having the financial means for three children at this time, each of Jack and Rebecca make decisions about their life as parents for which they may not be emotionally prepared, but which they know they have to do to make it under the circumstances. In present day, things with the play seem to be going well with Kevin and Sloane now co-financing ...

Because of You
