GREAT MOVIE!
5 May 2004 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This was a great movie. The actors that played the Twiggs parents I am fans of them both, good performances by all the cast. I have 2 kids myself. If I found out at a later date, that my son or daughter was not my own, and someone else had them (hospital error, not a kidnapping) I would want visitation & get to know my him or her. However, if my son or daughter (biological, not the one I raised) wanted to remain in the home they were raised in and it was a suitable home (mothers have to look at for their kids)that would be okay, I would want my child to be happy. If one of my kids died, I would not only greatly miss them, but if they turned out to be the biological child of someone else, due to a switch, I would feel bad that the parent of the child I raised (their biological child) did not get the memories I did & share shories with that child. I am glad to hear that the real Kimberly Mays got to stay with her father who raised her,but nothing against the Twiggs. I just think they should have fought just for visititaion, not full custody. After all this poor man lost his wife, the daughter he raised he finds out, is not his own & his real daughter has also died. It is sad that the daughter the Twiggs raised died & I am sorry for their loss. However, after 10 years, kids are going to be happy with who has raised and cared for them for so long & they are not going to be happy about being uprooted from the list they know. I hope they are all doing well!!
