When Sex And The City‘s Charlotte and her hubby, Harry, couldn’t get pregnant, they adopted their daughter Lily and the rest is history. But then in the SATC movie, Charlotte gets pregnant and gives birth to a baby girl!
Zola came to Seattle Grace first as a patient from Africa, but Meredith and Derek took to her so much that they adopted her as their own. Meredith then gave birth to their son, Bailey, on last season’s finale!
Ricky grew up in foster care until he was adopted as a kid a few years later. We get introduced to his birth mom, Nora, in later episodes of Secret Life, so he went from having no moms to two moms just like that.
And one last ABC Family that deals heavily with foster care and adoption is the PLL spinoff, Ravenswood, which got canceled after its first season. The two main characters—Caleb and Miranda—end up spending their whole lives in foster care separately before meeting each other and becoming friends in that creepy town in Pennsylvania.
In the final episode of season 1 of CBS’ Mom, 16-year-old Violet gives birth and makes the tough decision to give up her daughter to a couple who can’t have kids of their own. It was a heartfelt and perfect ending to the season.
