For those players who have expressed some concern that any accomplishments made in the 1st Generation of the game will be wasted in the 2nd, this is not the case at all. All the items you have gained will be saved and the money you have earned will be inherited. The levels you have gained will be reflected in your child's levels.
Friendships will have to be made anew, however, which makes sense as your child is a different person!
For those who are interested particularly in Dorothy, her Proposal and Marriage Event will follow shortly. I was so busy that I almost forgot to marry her! You are allowed to see her face during the ceremony and it is truly lovely.
