The Fosters (2013)

The Fosters (2013)

The Fosters is a compelling, one-hour drama about a multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological kids being raised by two moms. Stef Foster (Teri Polo), a dedicated police officer, and her partner Lena Adams (Sherri Saum), a school Vice Principal, have built a close-knit, loving family with Stef's biological son from a previous marriage, Brandon (David Lambert), and their adopted twins, Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) and Jesus (Jake T. Austin).

Their lives are disrupted in unexpected ways when Lena meets Callie (Maia Mitchell), a hardened teen with an abusive past who has spent her life in and out of foster homes. Lena and Stef warily welcome Callie into their home thinking it's just for a few weeks, until a more permanent placement can be found.

Callie is quick to observe that the Fosters are an atypical family, and her blunt commentary hits a nerve with Jesus and Mariana who are struggling with their own identities. The twins have the opportunity to meet their birth mother, but they aren't sure if they are emotionally ready, or if they want to share the experience with their adoptive moms. Callie also discovers that Mariana is harboring a secret that could land her in serious trouble.

Brandon, a talented musician with a kind soul, lends Callie a hand in navigating the classrooms and social scene at the Fosters' high school, Anchor Beach Community Charter School. He's faced with a tough decision when Callie decides to ditch school to reconnect with someone from her past. What happens next will determine if Stef and Lena made the right choice in taking a chance on Callie, and whether they have room in their home - and their hearts - for one more. (Source: ABC Family)

If anybody asked me why I was drawn to the television drama series The Fosters, then I would ramble on and on about the show. The people in the show are real, honest to goodness people just like you and me. The actors’ portray the characters on the show as realistically as possible. And then, there are so many things that are dealt with in this television drama. We think about issues like; juvenile detention, fostering, teenage pregnancy, birth control, alcoholism, etc which definitely take centre stage here. Yet, one thing is certain, The Fosters take a positive look at the day to day life of a modern family. Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg utilize their writing style to make us more aware about pertinent issues we come across every day. It goes without saying, that the writing team have never forced a certain type of ideology upon their viewers. Yes, the story revolves around a progressive family with two devoted same sex, multi-cultured moms and their biological and foster children. So, what! This is reality! It is a foregone conclusion though, that you are going meet with opposition from various spheres of society. But, in reality, that is just how life plays itself out. However, in the end, the preservation of human rights and human dignity should always prevail. Then again, if people are going to call themselves real believers, they would know that God does not discriminate against anyone irrespective of your color, creed or sexual orientation. So, fasten your seatbelts and take a ride with ABC’s The Fosters every Monday night at 9pm. Read more
