Cassie Peters is pregnant and plans to give her baby up for adoption.  Although neither Craig (the baby’s father) nor Joanne (Cassie’s mother) is present for the delivery, Monica is, posing as a nurse.  After holding her daughter, Cassie changes her mind and runs away, much to the chagrin of the Feldmans, the adoptive parents.

Monica and Tess are keeping watch over mother and child when they learn from Adam, the Angel of Death, that the child is seriously ill.  Monica gently prods Cassie to take the child to the hospital, where the teenager begins to realize she is not ready for the rigors of motherhood.  Monica’s revelation reinforces this fact, and Cassie returns home and returns the baby to the Feldmans.

At the infant dedication, Mrs. Feldman announces that she and Ben have named their baby Faith.  Cassie asks for a moment with her daughter and plays the flute for her–a legacy of music that runs in the family.
