A major conflict
Jessica argued the baby should be with his biological parents and siblings, “where he belongs.” The Lius’, on their part, felt as if the two boys were their children, even if they weren’t twins as they had initially thought. They argued that they had fulfilled their part of the deal by paying Jessica what she was promised.
When the two couples had just embarked on this journey, the couple adored Jessica for allowing them to have this blessing, but now they accused her of being selfish. The Lius’ called they baby Max, while Jessica and Wardell insisted his name was Malachi.
