Backstory

After marrying Doug Williams in June 1972, Addie learns she is pregnant. However, Addie's age would lower the chances of her having a healthy pregnancy. To make matters even worse, Addie is later diagnosed with Leukemia. Addie falls into a coma and awakens to give birth to her daughter, Hope Alice Williams on January 14, 1974. On June 28, 1974, Addie is killed pushing Hope's carriage out of the way of oncoming traffic, leaving Doug devastated. Hope is taken in by her maternal grandparents, Tom and Alice until Doug reclaims her in 1975. In June 1980, Hope is shipped off to boarding school.

A teenage Hope returns to Salem in the spring of 1983 crushing on Roman Brady. Hope's advances catch the attention of Roman's rebellious brother Bo. The two soon fall in love and Doug disapproves and pushes his daughter to marry the crooked District attorney, Larry Welch; Larry eventually blackmailed her into marriage in June 1984. The marriage didn't last and Bo and Hope finally married on May 23, 1985 at Westminster Abbey in England.
