Is this child the gift that she’s been looking for?
The Ahmeds were recently forced to give up baby Harley, when the little lad went back to his biological mother. So when Mariam and Arshad come to discover that they’ve been left another child on their doorstep, might the pair attempt to turn the situation to their advantage?
Having taken the little girl into their home, Mariam initially tells her husband that she’s informed the authorities. Arshad soon realises that his wife is lying, though, forcing her to admit the truth about the note left by Hayley. Mariam then explains to Masood and Arshad that they should give Hayley time to come to her senses. However, could her reluctance to hand the baby over be an indication that she’s already thinking about the idea of caring for the child on a much more permanent basis?
