The double-doors say in gold script, "Come in! Come in! Welcome! For Blessed are they that give Life" And then, in the lower corner, "RIGHT-TO-LIFE ADOPTION CENTER” Maylene stops, her baby held so tightly that it murmurs. She cant go in. But there's another woman coming behind her. This gives Maylene strength to pull open the door and hold it for the other, a gray-haired, drawn-faced, white woman lugging a large, angry-looking infant wearing an engineer's cap. Behind her Maylene sees other figures converging on the Center.

But she has time only to notice that the walls are papered with pictures of little animals in dresses—mice, maybe—and that there's a row of empty high-chairs by the counter, before a nurse is beside her and the other mother. " The nurse— she's white, like everyone Maylene can see here—urges them back. " No smiles from Maylene and the other. The child in the cap lets out a loud squall.
