Instead of emancipation she gets family Life Unexpected: Dreams can come true

Fifteen year-old Lux has spent her life going from one foster family to another in Portland Oregon

Fifteen year-old Lux has spent her life going from one foster family to another in Portland Oregon.

She has finally decided to become an emancipated minor. During her journey through the legal maze, Lux finds her biological father, 30-something Nate "Baze" Bazile, who lives above a bar and is astonished to learn he has a daughter.

Lux learns that her mother is Cate Cassidy, a star on local radio, along with her boyfriend, Ryan Thomas. A judge decides to grant temporary custody of Lux to Baze and Cate instead of emancipating her.

They agree to try to get past the arguments and awkwardness and make a belated attempt to give Lux the family she deserves.
