Cast of Characters:
Carlie: (14-16) year-old girl) Carlie is street smart, sassy, suspicious of everyone and a natural leader who is also a victim of child abuse. She is hard to crack until the end of show where she starts to show her softer side.
Harvey: (11-14) year-old boy) Harvey has a hard time admitting he needs help. He is quiet, unhappy and withdrawn. He is in a wheelchair and has an alcoholic father.
Thomas J: (9-11) year old boy) Abandoned when he was 2 years old. Raised by two elderly ladies. Thomas J doesn’t know how to express emotions.
Mrs. Mason: (A foster Mom who has cared for many foster children over the years. She couldn’t have her own children) Sweet, compassionate, understanding, heart of gold.
Harvey’s Dad: A single father and alcoholic. Unpleasant would be an understatement.
Three children are bounced around like pinballs from one foster home to another. Each longs for the comfort of a real home. Now they come together for the first time at the home of Mrs. Mason, a foster mother.
