Linda e Michael Spector, felicemente sposati da oltre dieci anni, stanno tentando in tutti modi di avere un bambino; dopo l'ennesimo fallimento con l'inseminazione artificiale decidono di passare all'adozione, scegliendo di mettere un annuncio in cerca di una ragazza ormai al termine della gravidanza disposta ad affidare loro il nascituro. Ben presto vengono contattati da Lucy, al nono mese di gravidanza, giovane di estrazione piuttosto umile e fidanzata con Sam, un perdigiorno che aspira a diventare musicista. Inizialmente Lucy non se l'era sentita di affrontare l'aborto ma ora si rende conto di non essere in grado di garantire un buon futuro al bambino. Tra Lucy e la coppia, dopo un'iniziale diffidenza, si crea un rapporto basato sulla reciproca fiducia e su un affetto sincero. Giunto il momento fatidico del parto, dopo aver avviato le doverose pratiche legali per l'adozione, Linda e Michael sono accanto a Lucy per tutto il travaglio e sono i primi a tenere in braccio il piccolo, che viene chiamato William. Mentre procede l'allattamento artificiale da parte dei genitori adottivi però Lucy è colta dai rimorsi e da un irresistibile senso di maternità che la porta a decidere di tenere il bambino. La decisione getta nel totale sconforto Michael e Linda che entrano in una pericolosa crisi coniugale. Lucy intanto scopre ben presto di non essere in grado di occuparsi del bambino, nel frattempo ribattezzato Andrew, e di non poter contare sull'appoggio di Sam. Dopo poche settimane Lucy e Sam bussano inaspettatamente alla porta degli Spector per affidare loro definitivamente il bambino. Michael e Linda sono finalmente felici di poter essere genitori mentre Lucy si è resa conto che per lei è ancora troppo presto per diventarlo
