She is staying with them for almost 2 years when she gets injured, but Alyson and Dylan's foster-parent status causes some trouble with Macy's medical situation. Because of this they consider adopting Macy too, because they feel they would miss their point if they were only willing to be a family temporarely. After Macy gets out of the hospital they talk her through their family and the difficulties, before proceeding to ask if she'd be okay with them adopting her.
