Heart of a Fighter
Abigail throws Cody a birthday party with all his friends. Carson gives Frank and Bill an update that he is sticking around Hope Valley to practice medicine. Just then, Cody opens his present from Carson: a baseball bat. Cody then opens his present from Lee and Rosemary: the book, “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,” which originally belonged to his late brother, Patrick. Cody declares this the best birthday, ever! But Abigail gives him one more present: Cody’s official adoption papers. She explains to Cody that from now on, he can call her “Mom,” and tells Elizabeth she will never grow tired of hearing it.
