to find the love of a family.
When divorcee Elise signs up to be a foster parent at the age of 50, she wonders if she made a huge mistake.

At only 15, DJ has lived a harder life than most other orphans.
A terrifying step-father and a string of unfit foster parents has left DJ with a fragile heart that keeps its distance. That way no one can ever hurt her again.
When DJ is sent to live with Elise temporarily, the two struggle to connect while DJ makes secret plans to run away. But as Elise shares God’s love, both hearts begins to soften and believe that a happily family might not be completely out of reach.
