Gillian and Cody Yarbrough are newlyweds. Having bounced around in foster care before he was adopted as a kid, Cody understands Gillian's struggle with giving up her child for adoption when she was just a teenager.
At twenty-six, Gillian is returning to college to finish her bachelor's degree and tries to make peace with decisions and mistakes made in her past. Now married, she desperately wants to start a family with her new husband, only she isn't getting pregnant as easily as she did in high school.
She holds a grudge against her ex-boyfriend because she had to forgo her athletic and academic scholarships to have their baby -- a baby he doesn't know exists -- while he went on with his life as planned. Their paths cross again, and Gillian is faced with choosing revenge or forgiveness.
