Adaptability, Flexibility, Dependability, Sacrifice, and Serving Others


When we become preoccupied with our own pursuits, we forget that real fulfillment comes through investing in the lives of others.

Up to this point, Sally Danville (played by Brooke White: “American Idol”) has had her life play out just as she hoped it would. A beautiful and free-spirited musician, she and her fighter-pilot husband Jason (played by Joe Flanigan: “Stargate Atlantis”) live life on the go, free of domestic responsibilities. But with a single phone call from Child & Family Services caseworker Dorothy (played by Phylicia Rashad: “The Cosby Show”), she learns that things don't always go according to plan. Sally is met with the news that her best friend from college and her husband have both died in a tragic accident on a Peace Corps mission and named Sally as the legal guardian of her four kids—three of them adopted from third-world countries. Now Sally and Jason must quickly learn to parent this instant family and help the kids deal with the culture clash of life in America. The story is both humorous and heartwarming, revealing how fulfilling life can be when you look beyond your own plans and invest in the lives of others.
