This movie was very good. I love Lynn Whitfield.. She is an amazing actress.. Although, it has a fairytale type feel.. it still is a good movie to sit and watch.. And its not run over with a bunch of porno scenes and cursing.. GOOOOOOOd Movie..
This was the first movie I had ever seen Essence Atkins and she was wonderful and her portrayal was great. She has the most expressive eyes! Lynn Whitfield's performance was so memorable as the mother, whose lack of education combined with an unjust system, unwittingly gave her baby away. It goes without saying that Jasmine Guy's performance was heartwarming and so believable. Her portrayal was great and I believe, although she is accomplished, she is one that Hollywood missed. Although not a big role, Gregory Alan Williams is a pleasure to watch. Good movie!!
I w as drawn to this movie because I myself am adopted and found my birth mother less than a year ago. My experience was different from Candy's - as every adopted person whom I've met has their own unique story. I like that her experience meeting her biological family isn't perfect and some biological family is more welcoming than others. I didn't like how slowly this movie started. Also, Candy, the main character, isn't the most likeable person. This is why I only gave this 3 stars. Luckily, the movie rallies and the later part is worth the watch.This isn't the best Hallmark movie I've seen, but I appreciate that they made a movie that brings this issue to life.
This movie reminded me of my late father. I found out that I had my biology father when I was about 20 years old. Then my half sister helped my mother and me to find him. I finally met him when I was about 28 years old in 1992. It was very special moment with him. We had.a great relationship over the years. I was glad that I spent lot of time with him before I moved from Canada to Arizona in 1997. He passed away about 5 years ago. I believe that God had the plan for our lives. Thank God for our memories.
This movie sent the message, We never understand God's mystery plan but He always has the purpose for our life. It is not worth to be bitter. Forgiving is healing and rejoice in the Lord.
When this movie started, I was like "Nah... I ain't gonna watch this". But I gave it a second shot and I was so glad I did. This was a really good movie with an excellent lesson... stop hiding and live the best life!

First off when I saw Ms. Lynn Whitfield, Essence Atkins and Jasmine Guy I knew it was gonna be good. These wonderful ladies don`t do bad movies or tv shows. Once again I wasn`t wrong. Unlike a lot of straight to DVD movies where the plot is kinda weak this touched on a lot of family dynamics especially after a sudden death. It also spoke to women trying to find that balance between a budding career and the little things that are most important. Thoroughly enjoyed this. Not just as a 31 y/o Blk woman from the south that could relate to all of this but I think this type of performance transcends demographics. Anyone will enjoy this.
