    The heartbreaking story of three little children searching for someone to love them. Maggie Hartley faces one of the toughest challenges of her career when three abused and neglected siblings she’s been caring for are placed for adoption with a family she believes are unsuitable. The couple are looking for a perfect, ready-made family, and Maggie knows that they’re not going to find it with these traumatised children. And when her worst fears come true, Maggie must fight against the very system she’s part of to have the siblings returned to her so that she can start to undo some of the damage that has been done.
