In 1997, Kate McNeil was a guest star on the TV series Promised Land. In the episode 'To Everything a Season', the actress played the sister of Wendy Phillips, one of the stars of the show.
The scenario here was simple. Kate McNeil's character Laura, unable to have a baby, must reconcile herself (and convince her husband) that adopting a child is the best and only solution. Her husband was played by actor Michael Reilly Burke.
