    Miguel is living with Marta, six children (his niece and nephews and her children), and a child in common, six months old. Against Marta’s will, he has just accepted a partnership in a medical clinic specialized in plastic and reconstructive Surgery, in Vilamoura, in Algarve.

    This season begins with the family’s arrival in Algarve. Marta is unhappy because her maternity leave is ending and, since they are moving, she can’t go back to her old job, and also the children hate the idea of leaving their school and their friends. Miguel is the only one enthusiastic about the idea of moving and especially working in the new clinic.

    One of the first cases Miguel has worked on at the clinic is Mariana Mazula, a five year old girl from Mozambique born with a birth defect on the foot who needed surgery. An association signs an agreement with the Clinic and Mariana comes to Portugal and Miguel performs her surgery. Mariana does not have anybody waiting for her in Mozambique, she lived in an orphanage. Miguel has grown fond of her and can’t stand the idea of her going back to the orphanage, so he decides to take her home and initiate the adoption proceedings. Marta and the children unconditionally support Miguel’s decision.
