** The foster father Callie and Jude had before Stef and Lena (the one who got Callie sent to juvie) didn't seem to be a very nice guy at all, terrible enough that Callie was willing to be sent back to juvie in order to get Jude out of his house.
** It looks like [[spoiler: Liam was abusive to Callie]].
* Parental Abandonment: Jesus and Mariana were abandoned by their drug- addicted birth mom, and later "returned" by their foster parents, which is how they met the Fosters.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Although it's natural for the viewer to root for Callie's adoption in Season Three, it would be hard to argue that the obstructing social worker's concerns are entirely without merit. Callie and Brandon have had a very unhealthy sibling/romantic dynamic for most of the show, which has negatively affected both of them and the entire family, and they (especially Callie) seem to have almost a compulsion to periodically pursue it even when it is completely against their own best interests. The fact that success relied on multiple people having to lie for them should probably have been a clue to them that all wasn't well, even though the protagonists never seemed to consider the problems pointed out by the social worker as at all legitimate.
