Series of five linked stories by Katie Hims on the theme of separation, based on experiences sent in by Woman's Hour listeners.

Janice already has two boisterous boys and is delighted when she discovers that one of the twins she is carrying is a girl. She dreams of the little dresses she will buy, how she'll fix her hair and how lovely it will be to have a dainty little creature around. Of course she's looking forward to another boy as well, but it's the little girl she is really excited about. But when the twins are born and she must be separated from one of them, her dreams come crashing down around her head.
