They say you don't know what you're missing if you've never had it to begin with. The Johnson sisters would beg to disagree on that one. 

They've spent the majority of their young lives being tossed around the foster care system like debris in the ocean, struggling to catch their breath, stuck in a current not knowing whether to swim up or down. When they finally get the chance at a family after living so long without one, it's not so easy letting those walls down and risking it all. 

Charlie and Lydia Tanner know what they're missing too, and that's a family to call their own. After struggling with infertility for the better part of the sixteen years they've been married, they've finally been approved as foster parents. They're ready to give these two girls their chance at a happily ever after, but we all know it's easier said than done, especially with a skewed system breathing down their backs.

Follow them as they go through the ups and downs of parenthood and know this: family doesn't always mean blood, just like blood doesn't necessarily make a family.

Most foster kids don't have that much luggage. Some kids are lucky to have a small duffle bag or backpack but a lot of them have garbage bags to carry their belongings.

This is quite good.  I've thought of doing Foster care but have a lot to get my house and yard ready to👻🎃🏄 pass their inspection.  Great intro.

I hate getting lost on road trips or just in cars in general. Once, my family and I were on a roadtrip in Michigan. It was almost midnight when we realized we had been driving three hours in the wrong direction. 😶😶😶

This is really sweet, I love how the two little girls are so attached to each other!  And the dynamics between Charlie and Lydia...can't wait to see how they all settle in.
