Joyce was beyond thrilled when she got the news that her son was finally going to be married. He’d been dating Judy for several years now, and Joyce had really grown to love her. Having had only sons, she had always fantasized about one day having a daughter-in-law, welcoming a girl into the family, and doing “girl things” with her.
