ABC Family's THE FOSTERS will return for the second half of its debut season on Jan. 13 at 9 p.m. Below, check out a two-minute recap of that has transpired thus far on the family drama, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter.

When The Fosters returns next week, Lena (Sherri Saum) and Stef (Teri Polo) find themselves affected by Callie's decision to run away, with Jude (Hayden Byerly) and Brandon feels guilty over her sudden exit. Talk show queen Rosie O'Donnell will have a recurring role.

"The Fosters" is a compelling, one-hour drama about a multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological kids Being raised by two moms. Stef Foster, a dedicated police officer, and her partner Lena Adams Foster, a school Vice Principal, have built a close-knit, loving family with Stef's biological son from a previous marriage, Brandon, and their adopted twins Mariana and Jesus. Their lives are disrupted in unexpected ways when Lena meets Callie, a guarded teen with an abusive past who has spent her life in and out of foster homes. Lena and Stef warily welcome Callie and her younger brother Jude into their home hoping to provide them with the guidance and nurturing they so desperately need.

Over time, Callie and Jude open up about losing their parents and the hardships they suffered while in previous foster homes. Callie grows especially close to Brandon, but their mutual attraction causes jealousy and concern since foster children are not allowed to have intimate relationships in the same household. When Callie finally gives in to those feelings, she jeopardizes Stef and Lena's offer to make her and Jude a permanent part of the family. Not wanting to ruin Jude's chances of finally finding a stable, loving home, Callie runs away.
