Summary
Like far too many children in foster care, Maisie has suffered abuse and neglect almost all her life. She desperately wants to be adopted, but early experiences have left the 7-year-old with a vast store of anger, confusion, and distrust. Several families have tried to adopt Maisie but found her behavior too challenging, so she was bounced again and again back into the foster care system. Maisie's luck changed when she met Jim and Sue, a couple who had already adopted eight troubled kids. With the help of an agency that specializes in counseling the most damaged children, Jim and Sue hope to help Maisie overcome her traumatic past. This film follows their journey over a one-year period, documenting the many obstacles that all three must overcome in their bid to give Maisie a home
