According to ABC's Website, the first episode will follow the story of Scott and Sandy Steinpas who are searching for the daughter they put up for adoption when they were just teenagers. In June of 1979, Sandy found out she was pregnant. The couple made the difficult decision to give their baby up for adoption. During Monday's preview, the couple will meet their biological daughter who grew up only about 8 miles away from them.

The show is hosted by Lisa Joyner and Tim Green, who are adopted themselves. Show producers said the show was created with one very clear goal, to bring families back together.

The show will air at 8:30/9:30c. In the Grand Rapids area the show will air on both WOTV-4 as well as WZZM-13.
