what a wonderful world it would be if only...al young, single, desperate dads that leave their offspring behind so as this one did. accept. hesitantly at first then, with open arms. everyone went through changes; indifference, repulsion, reflection, introspection, understanding, empathy, acceptance. resolve. its all there in this film. the run through of the wide spectrum of emotions. the young, angry girl becoming a full fledged woman with a child of her own. changes, time, space, love from the most unexpected of places. i love this film. I'd watch it again. i recommend it for those who are a spiral down of self destruction, no avenues to turn. lost, without hope. there is a family beyond blood. ties, that forever bind. its a lovely movie even if it reeks a bit of Christianity, lifetime movie of the week, hallmark melodrama. its a good movie. it is not worthless, it is not without hope. its inspiring for those that need to be.
