I love this show. Adopted children with same sex parents. This is such an important show for my family, I am grateful for the folks that made sure this show is on the air!
And sometimes I also don’t love this show because it hits too close to home. I hate watching teenagers getting into the massive amount of trouble these kids get into! And the truth is, I hate it because I have a teen and I see the trouble he gets into, or adjacent to, and it scares the crap out of me. This drama is real! And raising teenagers is not easy!
The issues this family deals with are current and interesting. I cannot wait for new episodes each week, and I am thrilled the show is returning this month!
And I met Jude last year at D23! I told him I had to get a picture for my next article, and here we are! Thanks Hayden Byerly!
I had also met some of his siblings on the show a few years ago, I always share with them how much this show helps my family by letting the public know that having same sex parents is not that different!
Now for the real info, here is what is coming up in the next few episodes, there may be spoilers, so read with caution, and do not forget to tune in!
