There's no honor in being a birth mother

You'll have to take these everyday.
The family is at the dinner table sharing their emotions of the day today.
I wish they would just start my ceremony now.
Joan's father has brought home the new baby. Lilly has taken a shine to the child and has hopes that she might be a birth mother.
You all probably think that I've mad a mistake, but he is Receiver of Memories.
For the first time Jonas remembers his dream to share with the family, his mother tell his sister that she should go to school. He is also told that he is going thou a process that every boy does and his mother gives him pills to lessen the effects.
Ceremony 1-11 have already been done, now it was the mid day lunch. Just as the thought had occurred the doors opened and the ceremony was starting.
The ceremony of twelve is now here and it's Joan's turn, when his number comes up the village chief skipped his number. At the end of the ceremony he is given his job as the Receiver of Memories.
