Looks like Steffy will be adopting Beth and it will take place quicker than I thought.
The spoiler I am troubled by is " Steffy becomes convinced that Taylor’s plan will change all of their lives for the better"-whose lives does she think this adoption will make better? I don't think anyone's other than herself. I really wish they hadn't involved Steffy in this. The whole adoption story is ridiculous and the timing is awful at best.

It’s nasty. Sadistic storyline and there is really no way Bell can play this as altruistic on Steffy’s part. Characters will praise her, no doubt but it’s not going to work for most fans. I wonder if anyone will question how cruel it really is? Maybe Brooke? Hope and Liam’s baby JUST died and she’s getting Kelly a replacement sibling days later. Buying her.

With jmw about to take a break I question the need to suddenly make the storyline about her character unless it’s an exit storyline for her. After the quality acting and writing to this point it’s too bad it’s now going to evolve into this nonsense.

I really feel uncomfortable with this storyline and I don't dislike Steffy per se (for the record, I do hate her obsession with Liam though and I wish the writers gave the character a different direction). I think the decision to adopt at this time is really in poor taste and does no favors for the character.
Regarding JMW, do we know if she plans to take time off at all and if so, for how long? If she is due in February they either have to hit pause on the story or wrap it up really quickly. I hope it is the latter but not sure if it is realistic given where we are at right now. Either way this story is going to be a hot mess. Not sure why Bell couldn't have written the baby being sold off to some rich couple and Hope and Liam finding out the truth and going to search for the baby. Would have been equally dramatic without the cringe factor.

for what it's worth, I read in fame 10 that steffy will work till her due date then be off for 2 months after that. but they said she had filmed enough ahead that she would be off the show for only about 3 weeks.
