Worn out Amelia is starting to doubt her abilities as a mum but Dan reassures her that things will get better. Amelia is not convinced. With Amelia struggling for a babysitter, Lydia has a solution. At the Dingles Homestead, Lydia piles baby Esther onto Samson. Samson is fuming at being left holding the baby.

Later on, Amelia is stunned when Samson suggests putting baby Esther up for adoption. Samson cruelly reminds Amelia of her abortion plans and is annoyed when his scheming backfires. Completely upset, Amelia confirms she knows what’s best for Esther and that’s family.

At Jacobs Fold, Noah reassures Amelia that she’s a great mum. When he tells Amelia that he’s set up a cot in his room for the baby, Amelia is touched by Noah’s sweet gesture. After a heated confrontation with Noah at the Dingles Homestead, Samson is determined to do something major.

Calling social services he sinks to a new low, pleading with them to take Esther into care.
