When a 22 year old man knocks at her door and announces that he is her long lost son that she gave up for adoption, Marge nearly loses it.
Although she is overjoyed to be reunited with her firstborn child, she dreads having to tell her husband Nate the truth. 23 years earlier Marge Tate was preganant with Nate's child.

When Nate comes face to face with his grown son, Sean Hardin, he is shocked to the core. How could Marge have lied to him for all these years? How can he ever forgive her. As Marge struggles to make her husband understand her past choices she fears that she has lost the love of her life.
