It's hard to justify because she already has three kids.
Um, this applies to the whole fucking storyline.

Thanks for posting, Ellie.
:lol: Truer words . . . .

I read that Lucas suspects Grace is actually Sami's daughter.

I like the idea of Sami explaining Grace to everyone as a baby she adopted. I was wondering how they were going to go about explaining how she has this baby. However, I do find it unbelievable that Sami would adopt another child when she already has two babies (Johnny and Allie). Whatever.

I still don't see any romantic chemistry between Rafe and Sami. I really wish the characters weren't so islanded and destined to be with a particular couple. It would really help the show to have the characters interact with everyone, characters outside of their stories. It would help in the chemistry department. I mean, for all we know, Galen Gering and Renee Jones could have amazing chemistry, but we'll probably never see it because he's destined to be Alison Sweeney's opposite.

You'd better hope that Ali and Dave don't decide to have a third child.

ROFL I was actually going to write something like that, like maybe another set of WTD twins.

Since Days will probably be canceled though in 18 months, I think we're safe (so to speak), haha.

Well at least Ali isn't justifing this crap of a writing job, unlike some people I know. All these months and this is what they come up with. The only thing I like about this spoiler is little Grace coming home.

This whole "Explanation or excuse" for adoption is beyond believable.
She will be opening up a HUGE can of worms because I dont think anyone will believe or understand her reasoning.
She had other options.. Obviously she Trusts Rafe, and knows he cares about baby Grace, it would have been more realistic if he simply came to Salem with a child, either a so called abandoned sibling, or baby from a girl he might have hooked up with who walked away from the baby and left with him.

This way Sami could have claimed getting attached to the child if Rafe brought her for visits.
And Being a "Single Dad" Sami could offer to help out and pretty much take charge of her care and be in the childs life every day with fewer questions.

This whole .. "I was lonely so I adopted a newborn while someone was trying to kill me" story is stupid, especially considering she has 2 small toddlers at home.

BAD WRITING...BAD VISION .. but , why am I not surprised.

Taelyn - my mind was where yours was. I thought for sure that since they went through the trouble of hiring GG and keeping him close to Sami...they would use Rafe as Grace's dad, and Sami would be helping him out by caring for the baby while he worked at the SPD...and of course, be raising Grace as her own.

There is no way an adoption could go so fast...maybe foster child. Bad writing all around. I hope Lucas figures it out...or someone.

But, thanks, Ellie for typing this up for us!

Thank you, I am just happy that Sami is getting Grace home even if the adoption lie is ridiculous. Ej will probably fall for it but I don't see Lucas believing it.

Good point about Lucas--I hadn't even thought about him but he ought to be suspicious that Sami was pregnant, then told him her baby died, and now she's got a baby the same age as hers would have been. Then again, he hasn't put any of the Danloe clues together either. (Incidentally, pretty banner.)
I can see Sami spinning the adoption to Lucas --she can say she was so devastated by the loss of her baby, and when she was hiding out at the convent she bonded with a baby that was abandoned there.

That is how I would see Sami explain it..she bonded with an abandoned infant while in the convent. Now what will Stefano figure out when his henchman gives his convent report?

I could not see any other out for the writing team given the edict Corday gave about "killing babies"..I really hope they do not let Nicole steal another child though, her list of nasty deeds is getting too long and she will have a very hard time not being painted into a corner.

GET EM STEPH!!

Well, people have been complaining for months that Sami did not have a plan. Adoption was thrown out as an idea and when Sami finally comes up with something and decides to adopt, people think it's dumb? Even when the show gives some what they want, people still complain LOL. Can't win, I guess. I don't think it makes much sense, as Drew said, because of Sami having two young children right now but they needed to do something.

I also agree it's late in the game to have Sami come up with this but you have to remember that the story is the way it is simply because Ali had to go on leave. They had to string it out and do things differently. I have no doubt that if she wasn't pregnant in real life, they would've did certain things differently. Hell, they wouldn't have done any of this at all so moot point.

I LOVE Sami and Rafe. They've clicked even more for me since they came to Salem together. I do agree that Rafe is still too isolated. I've really enjoyed him more when he's with others. They really need to ingratiate him into Salem and soon and have him interact with others. Hell, even do a bit of chemistry testing with him just to see if he sizzles with someone other then Sami before simply settling on Sami and Rafe. Explore all options before settling on a quick resolution would be the proper way of doing things right now IMO.

This sounds good though.

Right. Because Sami didn't have a plan for a long time. Now that she finally has an idea at the last minute, that means people's complaints for the past few months weren't valid?

I think we're more disappointed because Sami can come up with WHOPPERS in the past!! It's lazy writing!! Sure part of the excuse is the stupid ass idea of writing in AS's pregnancy, but if you decide that, they you better have something good waiting--because that time in WWP was HORRIBLE!
This is Days, so I can buy of a lot of the shit theyre selling...but for Sami...the queen of scheme...to have this "solution" to hiding her pregnancy??? LAME!!

Once you factor in the Christmas break, Ali's total "leave" amounted to a mere 3 weeks. Such a brief absence put no pressure on TPTB to rejig 6 months of story. Of course, having to co-ordinate Ali's pregnancy with Sami's added further complications but that's just another reason why the former shouldn't have been incorporated in the first place.
