Ricky's sexually abusive father, Bob, returns to town in search of his son, but he's up to no good when he first pays a visit to Amy and her family and later threatens Ricky with the possibility of selling the baby. Amy reveals to her parents that Ricky has been sexually abused by his father and Anne suggests that they should seriously consider what's best for the baby adoption. For the first time Amy seriously considers giving her baby up for adoption and discusses it with Ben and Ricky, who both want her to keep the baby, but for very different reasons. Anne seeks out Rev. Stone's advice to see if he knows any nice families who are looking to adopt.
