Great ABC Movie of the Week
16 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was in high school so the subject matter really hit close to home. It's one of those little TV movies that's stayed on my mind all these years. All the characters were well developed and the film did not pose any easy answers to the main characters dilemma as to whether it was fair to try to raise a child with very little resources or give him up to parents that could give him a good home and a chance at life. What I remember most about the film is the girl's father, played by Joseph Campanella. His character, while protective and understanding of his pregnant daughter, really stifled the boy's attempt to live up to his responsibilities. A quality made for TV movie which will hopefully make it to DVD.
