Storyline

A youngster, who was given up to foster care at birth when his parents discover he was born with disabilities, is persuaded to join the Special Olympics by Jonathan and Mark. Once the boy joins the Special Olympics, he is paired with a coach who turns out is his older brother, though neither are aware of this because their parents kept the mentally handicapped child a secret. At the same time Jonathan and Mark try to help their friends, Scotty and Diane, who find out they can't have children. Written by Tony Scheinman
