Sam's moving out so that Addison can impress a social worker as she attempts to adopt a child. When Addy gets news that a birth mother wants to meet her, she knows that she could very well be a mom in less than a month. Woo hoo!
The birth mother, Melanie, is thoroughly impressed after Addison opens up about her past abortion. Things take an accelerated turn when Melanie goes into labor early. When complications arise, Addison shoos away a rookie doc to bring the newborn into the world herself. It's a beautiful baby girl. But will it be Addison's baby girl?
Addison has already fallen in love with Melanie's baby. That's why it's so heartbreaking when she learns the child is not going to be hers. Addy breaks down in Jake's arms. Later, Sam tries to comfort her, too. They love each other, but they can't keep going the way they have been. It looks like this is the end of the line for AddiSam.
