Craig Parker, a local farmer, has been asking widowed Amanda Drake for over a year to marry him, to which Amanda has refused each time. After all, she still loved her late husband and she didn’t feel she could ever love again.
One day, they hear about a train full of orphans coming to their town in Texas. They both want to adopt a child and they are both individually given permission to adopt as a single parent.
Complications arise as Amanda must make a decision; should she stay single and raise her new daughter on her own or will she find a new family?
