Feb 18, 2011 on ABC at 8:00 PM


Jo visits the Merrill family at Camp Pendelton. While husband and marine, Chris is stationed overseas for a year in Afghanistan, wife Beckie is left alone with their 4 adopted children: 4-year-old cousins Garrett and Elena (who are biological cousins... (more) who were adopted from Guatemala) and siblings 6-year-old Eddie & 4-year-old Lydia (who are biological brother and sister who were adopted from Ghana). Eddie & Lydia were adopted 3 months ago and are struggling with learning English and have a great fear of the dark since back in Ghana, there was violence at nighttime in their community. The kids run outside when they feel like it and ignore their mother while bedtime & mealtimes are a disaster. Beckie struggles with discipline and feels so exhausted, outnumbered, & at her limit along with being alone while her husband is away. Can Jo help Beckie out and help the kids get in bed?
