Eighteen-year-old Jules always wanted a tight-knit family, but she never knew her father, and she isn't close to her ex-addict mother. When she looks for a baby picture for her senior yearbook, she is shocked to learn that she was in foster care for the first two years of her life. Jules sets out to learn the truth about her past and to find this loving family who had hoped to adopt her, but when she finds them, what she learns could break her heart once again.
