If only Debbie's adoptive mother, Angie, could be more like Debbie's hockey coach. Coach Steph loves hockey, while Debbie's mother plays the piano and does yoga, two things that Debbie definitely doesn't understand.

In trying to fit into her new life, Debbie learns the importance of accepting people for who they are and what it means to be part of a family.
