back into his life. She’s warm but fiesty, idealistic and

Maddy is a
dedicated and committed mother and dropped out of Law School to
raise her son Robbie, but now that her son is older she has

anyone else. That’s her job and she’ll do it. She doesn’t
go home and cry at night because she’s done something immoral.
