Raleigh Knox has been a hard worker her whole life. When she became a mother, she made the hardest choice of her life; she quit her job to raise her kids. Her second oldest daughter was born with Down syndrome and is going to a school that will help her live in the real world. The rest of her children were all born with different birth defects ranging from Cystic Fibrosis to ADD/ADHD to Autism. Now, with the impending birth of her fourteenth child, Raleigh moves her children to Glenoak where her husband has lived for the past two months. Being separated from him was the hardest because he was always there to comfort the children when she was either in a meeting, at birthing classes, or helping other families that had children with similar birth defects at the local community center. With her oldest daughter, the only child born without a birth defect, helping out as much as she can between going to school and working at Pete's Pizza, Raleigh has no time to lounge. There is always something to be done around the house and it doesn't have anything to do with fixing the house up. Will the design team help them out? Will they love their new house? And with all the bills, will the local hospital help them out somehow?
