About eight months ago, Dr. Addison Montgomery finally became a mom when Henry came into her life. This joyous day came when a young mother named Judi realized she couldn't care for a child. Henry is part of an open adoption which means his birth mom gets to visit him from time to time. Judi hasn't taken advantage of this opportunity until now.

Addison is a little nervous about the possibility of losing her baby boy to his real mom especially when Judi asks for back-to-back visits. The second meeting is truly awkward when Judi brings her mother along. The woman immediately refers to herself as Henry's grandmother. Addison tells Judi to stop ambushing her when she pays her yet another visit at the office. As it turns out, Judi was coming to say she couldn't see Henry again. It's just too hard. She knows Addison is a great mom and will take great care of her son.

Gwen is a special needs girl who has spent most of her young life trying to learn how to walk. Her mother, Shawn (guest star Deirdre Lovejoy), believes Addison should have recommended she have an abortion eight years ago, as she's been through hell since her baby was born. At the time of Gwen's birth, Addison recommended a cutting edge procedure that is now the standard. It's actually a miracle that the little girl is now starting to walk. Nevertheless, Shawn is suing Addison for the "wrongful birth" of her daughter.
