Callie realizes that her website can make a difference for foster youth in the winter premiere of “The Fosters,” airing Monday, January 25, 2016 at 8:00PM ET/PT on Freeform, the new name for ABC Family.
As the third season of “The Fosters” continues, former foster teen Callie is now officially adopted into the Adams Foster family. She must put aside any romantic feelings for Brandon and does so by throwing herself into her “Fost and Found” website, even drawing the interest of an investor (guest star Kelli Williams, “Detective McLean: Ties That Bind,” “Army Wives”). After his performance at Disney Hall, Brandon is approached by a recruiter from Juilliard. Mariana launches her campaign to run for junior class president while Jesus tries to hide the reason why he doesn’t want to go back to wrestling school. When Mike discovers a secret his foster son, AJ (guest star Tom Williamson, “The Goldbergs”), is keeping, he is torn about what to do with the information. Jude must face the fact that his boyfriend has decided to move away, and a serious medical issue for Stef results in a clash of opinion between her wife, Lena, and her mother, Sharon (guest star Annie Potts, “Ghostbusters”). Meanwhile, Sharon introduces the family to her liberal-minded friend, Will (guest star Rob Morrow, “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll,” upcoming “American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson”).
It feels like this show has been on for more than half a decade. I feel like I have known these characters for years! Cause I love this show!
And I was late to the game! I had been told that this was a great show, but ignored my friends suggestions to watch until I met the cast last December, 2014. Then of course it took one episode to fall in love with the entire premise and story line, and immediately care for the characters and what they were going through.
Another favorite television show of mine is Shadowhunters. Have you seen it yet?
I can’t wait to see how the new actor playing Jesus glides into his role:

The first thing I told the cast when I met them was how helpful it was to see a same sex parented family on TV, for my family. I thanked them profusely and they thanked me for letting them know that they were making a difference. We live in the middle of Manhattan and have had great support as a two dad family, but families like us are few and far between in our neighborhood. It is wonderful for my son to see families like ours represented in the media as well as this show presents it.
I am thrilled to have met Maia Mitchell (Callie Quinn Jacob), Cierra Ramirez (Mariana Adams Foster), and David Lambert (Brandon Foster) during the ABC Family press trip they had to NYC in 2014! I can’t wait to see these folks again to tell them what a great job they continue to do!
