Bob Brawley is thumbing through the newspaper one Sunday afternoon, looking for something to distract his mind from the freefall that has left his marriage with Shelly in near shambles. He comes across an article that describes the Amish lifestyle and its customs and passes the paper to Shelly, beckoning her to read the article. Agreeing to remove themselves, if only for a weekend, from the toxic, pernicious air that has filled their home, Bob and Shelly locate the Amish community and soon find themselves in the home of Jacob and Katie Beiler, where they learn about the Amish persecution, their relocation to America, their traditions, their beliefs, plain dress, and methods of farming. When Bob asks Jacob about the possibility of his family living in the Amish settlement, he learns that he would need the bishop's approval as well as a sponsor. Returning to Oklahoma City, Bob and his family miss their Amish friends and feel led to return to the quaint, pastoral Missouri settlement. After Jacob locates a vacant, two-story, dilapidated farmhouse for Bob and his family, they pack a travel trailer. Join them as they discover what it means to live a simpler life in Adopted by the Amish.
