Annie McDermott loved her husband Terry.

So why question him when he told her he wanted to go to a sperm bank to conceive, claiming he had genetic disabilities in his family? Annie was artificially inseminated and nine months later gave birth to her daughter, Emma. As Emma aged, Annie discovered that Terry was a sexual predator that had seduced many teenaged girls. Fearful for Emma, she divorced Terry and ran off with her daughter before Terry could be awarded custody.

All My Children Quotes

Greenlee Smythe Lavery: Just - I tried to remember when we weren't stressed to the max. Our honeymoon may have been the best time ever. I was just hoping that maybe tonight we could feel like that for just a few hours, let you remember how much I love you, how happy I am that I'm your wife, just like that night.
Ryan Lavery: Come here.
Greenlee Smythe Lavery: What? What are you...
Ryan Lavery: I remember everything. I remember it was going to be the first time that we made love as husband and wife. And I remember thinking to myself that my bullet wound was easy compared to waiting to make love to you. I wanted you so bad. I want you now. I want you right now.

Ryan: Do you feel that?
Gillian: Your heartbeat.
Ryan: OUR heartbeat.
