Moving, very moving
21 August 1999 | by (Anderson, SC, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this made for tv film, and it made me cry. In this film, a fifteen year old girl gets pregnant by her boyfriend and decides to keep her baby. She moves out of her house, and into a home for unwed mothers. It's amazing the struggle she goes through. Life is tough. I just couldn't believe the beautifully realistic, but frightening way it was portrayed, with the girl literally at her wits end. In the conclusion, the girl finally makes what seems to be the right choice, and all ends well. As I said before, moving, very moving. This a movie that every teenager needs to see.
