  • "Sometimes I feel like a motherless child..." Young Alex waits for a permanent home, while Freddie and her friends argue over who's best suited to provide that.

    9.0
    Alex is one of many children awaiting a chance to get out of the foster care system. Freddie lends a sympathetic ear, and goes to an adoption fair, hoping to see the bright, charming kid meet potential parents. Sadly, Alex strikes out, as all the prospective families want are infants. Freddie is irate, and argues it out with a professor who had given hopeful signs but also chose to be in the 'babies only' column.



    Someone else can't take it, either: Alex himself. He runs off, finding a hiding place with Ron and Dwayne. There they try to entertain him, as does Whitley, who is also turning on the charm for Dwayne's sake; but they all fear being found out by hall supervisor Walter, who works for the community center that hosted Alex.



    Now Alex can't lose for winning: the tide turns as many candidates consider adoption. In the end he finds a home with the professor with whom Freddie battled, and his wife: seems they have a place in their lives for the sweet and promising boy after all.



    Freddie may have had some nerve picking a fight, but her heart was in the right place.moreless
