Popular softball star Chelsea dropped out of high school senior year while pregnant with her daughter, Aubree. She has a tumultuous relationship with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Adam--Aubree's father. Chelsea benefits from a strong support group of family, friends, and especially her dad. This season, Chelsea moves into a place of her own with her best friend and Aubree in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Now that she's on her own she relishes her quality time with Aubree, but has trouble motivating herself to earn her diploma online and pursue her dream of enrolling in beauty school. Her ongoing emotional tug-of-war with Adam keeps escalating, while her family and friends grow increasingly vocal about wanting him out of her life for good. Chelsea struggles to negotiate others' expectations with her own desire to provide her daughter with a loving family with both parents in the picture.
She's determined to make things work with Adam, even if doing so means she must say goodbye to some of the people closest to her.
