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.

good movie
15 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a really good movie. I had seen it years ago when it was first released. I still catch it on reruns here and there. I felt for both families. Unfortunately hospital personnel weren't held accountable and both families suffered. Especially Kim. From the articles and stories I have read about her she has had a pretty rough life. Although as adults, we become responsible for our actions, I can't help but believe that she was traumatized and was affected by the consequences for the hospital's negligence. I hope eventually she is able to turn her life around and lead a somewhat normal one. For herself and the children she has. I believe I read that she has two children. The last article I read stated that she had gotten into prostitution. God be with you child and I hope everything works out for you.
