MEET HALO CITIZENS: PAUL & EMMA MIDASSEN
Paul and Emma Midassen are a wealthy, older businessman and his young, beautiful wife. Under the guise of a legitimate adoption, Paul pays a lot of money for the baby his wife so desperately wants. Before the baby's first birthday, child welfare takes custody of the child when an anonymous tip reveals he has been stolen from his mother.
This child becomes the center of a controversy that uncovers a baby-selling operation making a lot of money for many high-powered people for several decades.
When her child is taken, Emma is devastated and tries to commit suicide. Then she discovers a core of strength as she begins a journey of healing. Months later, her husband builds her a magnificent house near Halo. He is rarely at that house, so Emma--now pregnant by a sperm donor--is making her way mostly by herself.
And, of course, with the help of Halo's legendary citizens.
