'The Fosters' Season 3 Episode 12 Recap: Battle Scars
The Fosters ended the first half of season 3 with a major win for the family. Now, it seems like the writers want to crush our hearts into a million pieces.

This puts them in an awkward, heartbreaking limbo for the rest of their lives. Meanwhile, the heart and soul of the Adams-Foster clan face a huge life-threatening dilemma. Our Foster mothers must survive this health scare. This half of The Fosters season 3 is making us an emotio...
