having grown up with mentally challenged siblings
6 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

Having grown up with mentally challenged siblings this movie is such a sweet and heart warming movie. It touched my heart and gave me hope that someday my sisters could and would be accepted in this world as well as valued the way I value them.... I know the pain of having someone who is different if you will in your life that you love and respect and to have to watch them being treated as less than human its just not right! Bill is so correct when he says Jesus loves us ALL! We should all take the time to know someone like Bill he was and is an inspiration! God bless you ALWAYS BILL SACKTER AND BARRY MORROW & YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY FOR BEING THE FAMILY BILL NEEDED AND Didn't HAVE. thank you so much for this movie!
