One for the Murphys

Carley uses humor and street smarts to keep her emotional walls high and thick. But the day she becomes a foster child, and moves in with the Murphys, she's blindsided. This loving, bustling family shows Carley the stable family life she never thought existed, and she feels like an alien in their cookie-cutter-perfect household. How could a family like that ever love deeply flawed Carley?

Despite her skepticism and resistance, the Murphys eventually show her what it feels like to belong. But just as she's starting to settle in, her mother inserts herself back into the picture — and says she wants to bring Carley home. Carley has to decide whether she can accept that she loves her mother, and that her mother might love her back — and even if she's not really a Murphy, they may have taught her what she needs for a brighter future.
