Chapter 1

Olivia grinned seeing Elliot shake his head, ridding himself of sleep, for the eighth time that night. "El, go home and get some sleep. Jamie is probably wanting her bed time story."

Elliot rolled his eyes. "Ever since you stayed over when Kathy was helping Kathleen move into her apartment, she has wanted you to read her bed time stories."

"Well, she is adorable and I was happy to help you take care of her." Olivia smiled straightened out her files. "Besides, her bed was a lot more comfier than the guest bed."

"You fell asleep when you were reading to her. She tucked you in and kissed your head before she snuggled into the bed next to you." Elliot chuckled and ran a hand down his. He picked up his phone and grinned. "I guess she really did miss me. Dickie is bringing her up."

Olivia laughed and got up when he motioned for her to follow him to the hallway. When they reached the hallway, the elevator doors opened to show Dickie holding Jamie's hand. Her brown hair was pulled back into a ponytail, her big blue eyes searching the hallway. She had on pink striped pajama pants. She had a blue tang top under her black leather jacket. "She certainly has a good sense of style." She murmured to Elliot with a smile.

"Yeah, she's learned from you." Elliot grinned before Jamie caught sight of them.

"Daddy!" Jamie squealed running towards him, letting go of Dickie's hand. She ran into Elliot's arms before he lifted her up, pretending she was an airplane, before bringing her down to his hip. She rested her hands on his shoulders and grinned at him. "When are you coming home?"

"I don't know, princess. I've had paperwork all night." Elliot sighed patted her back. He turned slightly to face Olivia. "But, guess who I'm hanging out with."

Jamie looked over and smiled seeing Olivia. She reached for her and cuddled into her chest when Olivia took her. "Hello girly!" Olivia grinned and kissed her head. "I've missed you."

Jamie sighed contently. "I've missed you too." She chuckled when Elliot poked her stomach. "Daddy, I'm talking to Livvie."

"Well, maybe I want to talk to Livvie." Elliot said putting his hands on his hips.

"Too bad." Olivia smirked before walking over to her desk with Jamie still cuddled against her side.

Dickie and Elliot followed them and watched as Jamie put a pencil on her ear, holding it there, before grabbing a piece of paper. Olivia grabbed her pen and tapped it a few times before putting it on her ear and looking at her calendar. "Jamie, have you been watching Olivia too much?"

Olivia furrowed her eyebrows as Jamie took the pencil and started drawing. "What are you talking about?"

"Jamie looked like your mini me." Dickie chuckled sitting down at his father's desk. He looked up at his father. "By the way, Mom is going crazy at the house. She wants to know when you'll come home."

"I'll be there tonight. You head back to campus and get some sleep. I'll take Jamie home with me." Elliot said patting his son's shoulder.

Dickie nodded. "Thanks Dad!" He stood up and blew a kiss to Jamie. She grinned and returned it. "Bye JJ!"

Jamie waved at him. "Bye Dickie!" She leaned back against Olivia and looked at the computer screen. "Who's that?"

Olivia looked at the screen and smiled. "That's you, silly." She chuckled and pointed to the picture. "That's the day you were born. Daddy took that picture of us." She kissed Jamie's head. "You were the cutest baby ever!" Jamie giggled.

Elliot smiled watching the two of them. He looked at his watch and noticed that it was getting pretty late. "Jamie, we should probably head home. It's past your bedtime and Livvy probably has somewhere she wants to be."

"I want to be here." Olivia said shaking her head. "I'm just going to see Alex and Casey. It's been a while, but they'd understand."

"Liv, go be with your friends. Jamie and I can start heading home." Elliot chuckled squatting down in front of Jamie still in Olivia's lap.

Jamie whined. "But Daddy!"

"Yeah, but Daddy!" Olivia whined mimicking Jamie. She grinned when Elliot rolled his eyes.

"No 'but Daddy's'. We are going home. How about we come see Livvie this weekend if she's free?" Elliot suggested to his daughter.

Jamie looked up at Olivia. "That works for me." Olivia smiled.

Jamie grinned and hopped off of Olivia's lap. "Yay! Can we go to that ice cream shop again?"

Olivia's eyes widened. "Yeah, can we, El?"

"Yes, kids, we can go to the ice cream shop." Elliot chuckled and took Jamie's hand. "Say bye to Liv."

"Bye Liv! See you this weekend." Jamie grinned waving at her as they walked out of the squad room.

"Bye Jamie!" Olivia smiled waving back, blowing a kiss to her and chuckling when Jamie returned it.

Olivia walked into the bar to meet Alex and Casey for a drink. She smiled when they both hugged her before she sat down. "Hey guys! What has been going on?"

"Too much! We have to get together more often. It's been months!" Casey grinned taking a sip of her drink. "I'm actually seeing someone."

"Really?" Olivia and Alex asked at the same time, faking astonishment. They both giggled as Casey rolled her eyes.

"Fine, I won't tell you about him." Casey said sticking her nose in the air and turned away.

Olivia grabbed Casey's arm still giggling. "Case, c'mon, we are just kidding. Tell us about him. What's his ass on a scale of one to ten?"

Casey grinned. "It's about a seven, but a different part of his anatomy makes up for it if you know what I mean." She straightened out her shirt before grabbing her phone and showing them a picture. "His name is Kendrick. We've been dating for eight months."

"Well, good for you." Olivia grinned. She looked at Alex. "What about you?"

Alex smiled. "Well, I didn't want to make this about me, but," She pulled out her phone and showed them a picture of a little baby boy. "I had a baby."

Olivia's jaw dropped. "You had a baby and didn't tell us? Alex!"

"Sorry, you guys know I don't like being the center of attention." Alex smiled putting her phone down. "It was a one night stand anyway. I only remember the guy's first name and what he looks like. Besides, I have the perfect gift out of it. He is the cutest baby I've ever seen, but that may just be because I'm his mother."

"He is adorable." Casey grinned. Olivia smiled and tried not to think about the fact that she would die to have a baby.

Alex looked at Olivia for a moment before rubbing her arm. "What about you? What's been going on? How's Elliot?"

Olivia shook her head, feeling the ache in her chest. "He's doing okay. He complains about Kathy all the time, but he can't stop talking about Jamie." She said referring to Elliot and Kathy's daughter. "But, I have had a very interesting year. I was dating Cassidy. We broke up last week, but I have a plan." She looked at Alex and Casey. "When I was declined for adoption, I knew that my biological clock was ticking. So, I put my eggs in a bank. They are only for me to use. So, I've been thinking about going in and scheduling an appointment."

"Liv, that's a big step. Are you sure?" Casey asked taking her hand.

"Case, I have wanted a baby for years. I want to be a mother. With the way my luck has been going, I may not find Mr. Right in time to have a baby." Olivia explained. "I want this."

Alex smiled and rubbed Olivia's back. "Then, we want this with you. We can help you out with everything if you want. We could even go with you to the appointment."

Olivia smiled and hugged both of them. "I knew I loved you guys for something." They both laughed at her statement before continuing small talk.

Two weeks later, Olivia walked into the clinic with Casey and Alex. They walked up to the front desk where a nurse was. "Hello, how can I help you?" She asked with a small smile.

"Hi, I'm Olivia Benson. I'm here to see Dr. Blakely." Olivia said to the nurse.

The nurse typed some things into her computer before looking up at her. "Yes, we have your appointment right here. He will be ready for you shortly."

"Thanks." Olivia nodded before sitting down with Casey and Alex.

"You nervous?" Alex asked rubbing Olivia's back.

Olivia nodded. "I little, but I'm more excited than anything." She grabbed her phone when she saw Elliot's name pop up. She grinned seeing his daughter's picture on the screen. She was grinning ear to ear with her golden lab.

Casey peeked over her shoulder and smiled. "Texting Elliot?"

"Uh, yeah." Olivia said closing the text message, making a mental note to text him back later. "Like I said. He loves to talk about Jamie." She looked up when she heard the nurse call her name. "Wish me luck." She breathed.

"Good luck, Liv." Alex said as they watched their friend walk back to the patient rooms.

Olivia sat down in the chair next to the doctor's and looked around the room. There were posters of baby's and diagram's. There was even a fairly large poster showing the different weeks of pregnancy. When she heard the door open behind her, she turned and smiled at the doctor. "Hi."

"Hi, Ms. Benson." The doctor smiled back lightly. He motioned for her to sit down before he did. Olivia sat down and watched as he pulled up her file on the computer. "So, you are looking at artificial insemination?"

Olivia nodded. "Yes, I am." She watched as he nodded back at her and looked at the computer again.

The doctor frowned. "Well, we have a problem. You used your eggs back in 2007."

"No, I donated in 2007. I haven't used them." Olivia corrected him glancing at the screen he was staring at.

"No, we have record of you using your eggs just a few months after you donated. We have your signature and everything." The doctor said turning the computer screen to her.

Olivia frowned looking at the screen. "That's not my signature." She felt her heart rate accelerate. "Are you telling me that someone took my eggs and had my child?"

The doctor's jaw was hanging open, wondering how this could happen. "Uh, I guess I am." He frowned and clicked on a link. "We do have record of the birth. It looks like your eggs made a little girl named Jamie Stabler."

"Wh-what? That can't be right. That's my partner's daughter." Olivia stuttered feeling her throat constrict.

The doctor clicked on another link and pulled up a photo of Kathy. "Do you know this woman?" Olivia nodded. "She's the one that came in here and took your eggs. What's her real name?"

Olivia took a deep breath. "Kathy Stabler."
