20SHE took AN INFANT

Debbie with Baby Franny Shameless

Debbie Gallagher grew up watching her older sister Fiona raise a house full of kids. Fiona wasn't necessarily the ideal mother figure, but since she managed to keep a roof over the family's heads and food on their plates, Debbie incorrectly assumed that it's easy to be a teenage mother.

One day

while walking around her neighborhood, Debbie spotted a toddler at a birthday party and decided to take him so she could get an early start at motherhood. Her siblings immediately expressed their disapproval and concocted a plan to see the child safely returned home while avoiding the police officers that were searching for the missing boy, but Debbie never got over her desire to become a mom through any means necessary.
