Foreign Exchange (#4.24)
9 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sophia's old friends come from Sicily. As it turns out, it is not just about a visit. They think that the hospital mixed up their daughter and Dorothy on the day they were born and come to take her back to get married. Dorothy goes through emotional time when waiting for results of who her mother is.

A fun episode with a great message that your real parents are the ones who raised and loved you. I loved how Sophia tore apart the blood test without looking at it. Who cares what the blood says, she knows who her daughter is.

And we have some fun watching the great dirty dancing done by Rose and Blanche
