The series attempts to offer a non-judgmental look at some of the individual journeys that women go on when giving up their babies for adoption. While all of the women struggle with their maternal instincts, thanks to the video diary entries and some soap opera-like relationship drama, some of the women featured here appear a bit casual about the impact their decision will have on them until the actual moment when they have to sign the papers and give up the child.

It doesn't offer a lot of specific information about the adoption process, but adoption counselors are very honest with the pregnant women about how difficult the process is. Some of the adoptive parents share some of the challenges they have faced, too. But in the end, this series is more about offering audiences some emotional -- but voyeuristically entertaining -- moments, rather than informing them.
