Single With 7

This powerful and inspiring reality family drama centers around 29 year-old Yesi Ortiz, an afternoon DJ at L.A.'s Power 106 FM radio. Yesi is much more than a DJ however; she is also "mom" to the seven nieces and nephews who were put into foster care when her sister was sent to prison.
