The ending is a bit unclear. At the end of the movie, Randy (the foster mother) realizes that Sam does truly love Lucy and is a fitting parent so she surrenders Lucy to him and says she will offer her support to him at the court hearing. Sam then confides in Randy and tells her that he can not raise Lucy by himself and that Lucy will need Randy - a strong mother figure - in her life. The final scene shows Lucy playing soccer and everyone (Sam, Rita, the foster parents and Sam's friends) in attendance. This can mean one of two things:

1) Sam and the foster parents both have joint custody of Lucy.

or

2) Sam was awarded full parental rights of Lucy but her former foster parents still remain close with Lucy.
