Right when Katie and Matt start reaching an official point of commitment with respect to their relationship, Matt disappears without explanation. He leaves only a diary for Katie to read.

In the diary, she explains how she and the boy's father met, about her different hopes for family and marriage, and about all the joys involved with having a baby.
