A few months after Wade's death, Elizabeth and John decided to expand their family. Before making it official, Elizabeth and John felt it was important to talk to Cate since it would affect her life as well. "I said if it makes you happy, do it," says Cate.

Elizabeth gave birth to Emma Claire when she was 48 and to Jack when she was 50.

"We didn't want to replace Wade," John says. "We would never have wanted to replace him. He was a part of our family and always would be. But children brought joy to our lives, and we did everything together, our family did, and we wanted that joy again."
