A very sad, but good movie.
21 January 2002 | by (Riverside, Ca.) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it came out on ABC. That was about 19 years ago. It's a heart-breaking true story. A mother finds out she has cancer and tries to find homes for all of her children before she passes away. I've been trying to find out how I can see this movie again.
