0007580: Dwarf achieves dream but it does not show up as realized
This may only affect migrant dwarves.

Dwarves have goals, such as "dreams of raising a family" and "crafting a masterwork". When they achieve a goal the text "this dream was realized" is added.

However, goals achieved prior to migration do not seem to register. For example, I have a migrant dwarf that has already raised a family and has the "family" dream but not the "realized" text.

This could be intentional but it's not clear to me, as a player, why the goal has not been realized. The goals appear to be lifetime dreams, rather than new goals after immigration.
1. Play Fortress mode until migrant dwarves arrive
2. Examine the thoughts and preferences of the new arrivals

"Raising" a family might only be realized once a child grows up. Is his kid already 12?

According to 0007628, babies should produce the same effect.

Would like to add that creating an artifact with a fey mood ought to complete the "Mastering a skill" goal, but it doesn't work. I don't know if that's intended, but I have a feeling that it isn't.

Stukos Artobudil, legendary mason, "dreams of mastering a skill" but it doesn't say "this dream was realized".

Like Talvieno says, the skill boost came from a strange mood (this happened in a previous fortress, but it never did say "and this dream was realized" in that fortress either.)

I've explored several examples, now and they have kids that are fully grown. As lethosor indicated, babies produce the effect. Another dwarf realized the dream after a baby was born in the fortress.

I think it's pretty clear that there is a disconnect.

I had the same thing with family dream. Dwarf currently has 7 children (one came with her). All children are older then 12.

So does fulfilling of given dream in the outer world, before migrating to the fortress, only not register as fulfilling or does it mean the dream can't even be then fullfilled in fortress time? The first one makes more sense but I am reading loki_ekb's note as the second variant.

I've seen this happen a couple of times with strange moods and the "dreams of mastering a skill" goal in version 0.47.05.
After investigating a bit with dfhack it seems that upon completion of the artifact the dwarf gets "MadeArtifact" and "ImproveSkill" thoughts, but not the critical "MasterSkill" thought. This suggests that the appropriate check for skill level simply isn't being performed.
