Storyline

This is the story of the two babies who were switched at birth. A few years later when one of the girls gets sick and tests revealed that she was not the daughter of the couple who raised her. Eventually she dies. And the couple most especially the mother, search for their real daughter. Eventually they suspect that it's a widower who has their child. Now while they try to find out if she is their daughter, the widower is advised by his attorney not to be so hasty to cooperate, cause if she is their daughter, he might lose her, and she is all he has.

tear jerker...awesome movie!
1 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I happened to catch this movie last night on TV. This movie really touched me. It was so sad. I would like to tell everyone that it was a great movie and story, and if you haven't seen it. you got to! its a long movie too...it came on at 11:40 pm and it didn't go off till almost 3:00am...I just couldn't bare to go to sleep without watching the whole movie...and man was I tired too! LOL....well I am most diffidently gonna watch it again...it was that good. Loved it.... I told everyone too about the movie. I hope it comes on again soon. I felt so bad for Kimberly's father. the one that raised her from birth..He went through so much...Kim and her biological family too. I really felt in my heart that I went through every step of the way when them both. I really got into the movie..I couldn't stop crying! It was really emotional.
