But becoming legitimate may mean losing some of the girls to the families who threw them away, and Lily hasn’t worked hard to save the teens only to abandon them now.
It seems Jameson will be one
more entry on the very long list of things Lily has given up for the
girls. What other choice is there when she is all they have?
