These highly rated new series left viewers wanting more and as a leader in family and relationship programming, TLC is delivering exciting sophomore seasons of their journeys.

Shauna is in the driver's seat (literally!) on her journey for independence as she starts driving lessons. Will she be able to achieve the huge accomplishment of getting her license? Meanwhile, her parents Patty and Mark hunt for a new house that will have a separate living space for Shauna, however, Shauna and her younger sister, Rylee, are making their own plans to move out on their own... despite their parents' worry. In order for them to live independently, Shauna must first get a job. Of course, that's easier said than done as some careers may be out of her reach given her child-like stature. The family visits older sister Tara in Florida, and while they're looking forward to some fun in the sun, they know it may not be long before things get heated between Tara and Shauna. Through all of this, Shauna is still looking for love and explores new ways of dating, including meeting a man who also has pituitary dwarfism. Will sparks fly between these two kindred spirits?
