Amazingly wonderful movie

I loved this movie from start to finish! If I could give it 10 stars, I would. Ving Rhames heads this all star cast as a loving Grandpa taking in his only grandson. The ranch they live on is amazing. This movie has sweet parts, funny parts and some drama. It is so well made and enjoyable. It flows good from scene to scene. The casting was spot on. Gloria Reuben plays a judge and the mother who put her child up for adoption. Please watch this movie. I love that the black community is so well portrayed in it. Strong character and integrity. The way I get to see black people here in Tennessee. I have a true compassion and desire to see all people represented well. I detest when movies always show people at their worst. This story is realistic, educational, inspiring and encouraging. Love will prevail. The truth heals. There are really good people in this world. The 12 year old character played his part so well. One can just see the potential in him. The world is and will be better off with his contribution. There are some very well-spoken statements made here too. Enjoy. I know I did. :)

We usually love most Hallmark movies, but this one is especially good. With fractured families today, this movie is especially timely in its message of forgiveness and reconciliation.

I had not seen this movie for over 15 years. I didn't even remember the name. But I am grateful I came across it and bought it. It plays great and I am happy!

This story is a heartwarming story of love between a man and his daughter and grandson. However, the clincher is: the daughter doesn't know that her father even knows the grandson, because she gave the baby up for adoption and she doesn't realize that her own father adopted him. The story shows the harm that miscommunication can do, but how the deep roots of love in a mother's heart break down the barriers.
