Season two of “Trying” continues to follow Nikki ( Esther Smith) and Jason (Rafe Spall) as
they navigate the adoption process. Having been approved by the adoption
panel they now find that matching with a child is not as straightforward as
they had hoped. It seems like children are being snapped up by other
couples while somehow they’re being left behind. Helped by their eccentric
social worker Penny (Imelda Staunton) they are determined
to do everything they can. When Nikki meets a little girl called Princess
at an adoption event she knows instantly that this is the child for them.
But there are obstacles to Nikki’s plan that may prove insurmountable.
