Good TV Drama.
5 October 2000 | by (California United States) – See all my reviews

Beverly Deangelo was very good in this movie about a mother's fight for the memory of Her Baby.

Ivey was really scary as the adoptive mother Who beat and Killed the little boy. I used to like Max Gail on Barney Miller, But I couldn't understand why His Charictor didn't put a stop to the Abuse of His adopted son. But all in all it was a good TV Drama. I'd rate it a Seven out of Ten.
