  • Very touching episode!

    I can honestly say this is one of my favorite episodes of the show. When Beverly Ann was married to Frank, she never had kids with him. She has always wanted to be a mother. Andy's foster parents were splitting up and he was pessimistic about being adopted since he wasn't a baby. Andy thought he would be sent back to the orphanage again. But since Beverly Ann couldn't bear to see him suffer again, she decides to accomplish her wish of being a mother and adopt Andy once and for all. The scene when she told Andy that brought tears to my eyes. After Andy was adopted, he not only gained a great mom, he got a wonderful Aunt Edna and Uncle Bruce, and two cousins, Raymond and Alex, and he had the four girls, and later Pippa. A wonderful, tight knit, and loving family right there.moreless
