i'd like to think that fate had a hand in what happened that summer.
that it was the pants' destiny to find us.
where they came from and why they chose us...
...well,that will always be a mystery.
but perhaps that was part of their miracle.
that they sensed in that moment how much we needed them.
how much we needed some little bit of faith to hold onto...
...when it seemed like everything we believed in was about to slip away.
but wait a minute,i'm getting ahead of myself.
beautiful dress! love it.
we'd been a foursome for as long as i could remember.
where are we going? we're going over there.
in fact,we were a foursome before we were born.
and seven. anyone feel any kicking?
our mothers met at a prenatal aerobics class.
they really didn't have anything in common...
...except their due dates.
one,and relax. good work.
the first one out of the gate was bridget.
ladies,let's keep it together.
the rest of us followed within the week.
bridget liked to take charge.
way to go,lena.
l'll handle this.
and you know what?
sometimes,that worked in our favor.
and that's how it always was with us：
give and take.
but mostly give.
lena,l don't think he's coming back this time.
it's gonna be okay,carmen.
l'll come over first thing tomorrow.
and tibby and bridget too.
just stay on the phone with me until you fall asleep.
what were they thinking?,take seven.
we were there for each other...
...to understand the things that no one else in the world could.
what were they thinking,having another baby at their age?
and what was l?
just some experiment from their hippie days...
...and now it's time to start their real family?
they're out of their minds.
lena,don't you realize this is tragedy?
can't you give me a bit more enthusiasm?
there were some things we would never make sense of.
grief is never an easy burden to bear.
and we were there for those too.
and as we mourn the loss of this beloved wife,mother and friend...
