It's not something that usually bothers her, but lately, it's all she can think about. Now Molly has a chance to find her birthmother — a chance to understand where she came from, and why she was given away. But the Fletchers aren't happy about her decision to unearth the past. They're afraid that everyone involved may get hurt. That's a chance that Molly may be willing to take.
