TV show description:
This dramatic TV series tells the story of two teenage girls who discover that they were accidentally switched as newborns in the hospital. As a result, they are raised in very different environments than what they would have been.

An artistic teenager, Bay Kennish (Vanessa Marano) grew up in a wealthy family with two parents and a brother. Privileged and eccentric, she’s lived a charmed life with the family she thought was her own. She was raised by her stay-at-home mom Kathryn (Lea Thompson) and former professional baseball player father John (D. W. Moffett), in the wealthy neighborhood Mission Hills, Kansas, along with her brother Toby (Lucas Grabeel).

After studying blood types in school, Bay begins to wonder why her blood type does not match her parents’. The family has some genetic tests done and discover that Bay is not biologically related to them. They discover that the hospital mistakenly switched her with another female newborn, Daphne Vasquez (Katie Leclerc).

She’s a deaf teen living with her struggling single mother Regina (Constance Marie) and Puerto Rican grandmother (Ivonne Coll) in a working-class neighborhood in Riverside, Missouri. A case of meningitis caused Daphne to lose her hearing as a child so she attends Carlton, a school for the Deaf, where she plays basketball and learns sign language.

Emmett (Sean Berdy) is Daphne’s sweet but protective best friend. Also deaf, he has a passion for photography and can be often found taking pictures or riding his motorcycle. His mother Melody (Marlee Matlin), is best friends with Daphne’s mom, Regina.

Things come to a dramatic head when the families meet and struggle to learn how to live together for the sake of the girls.

I love this show! I have never watched one through all the seasons like this one. Everyone I make watch it with me gets into it. I hope it keeps going. Even my husband loves it. We are waiting for the next episode!! The actors are great and the show always keep you hanging. I like how the situations make you think about what you would do, and that even though life has tough dilemmas it ‘s about working together to get through them.

Switched at Birth is one of my husband’s and my favorite shows. We would really miss it if it ever got cancelled.

This is a unique, unique show. Where else on TV can you see a family struggling with a daughter’s handicap (amazing, we see deaf actors signing on TV!) while we are also in love with a teen and her sister trying to understand friendship, sexual awakening, job difficulty and family economics. Please keep this show sgoing for all of us to continue seeing our world as it really is.
