Movie that touched on a sensitive and experimental subject of surrogate mothers.
30 May 2001 | by (Oakwood, Virginia USA) – See all my reviews

I remember this movie from years back either 1995 or maybe I watched it in 1996 on ABC. Connie Sellecca plays a married woman who is unable to become a mother due to a fertility problem only to have her young housekeeper played by Alyssa Milano to become a surrogate mother and then take care of the child for good. Then Connie takes back her promise and wants the child for good only to cause problems and trouble. I'm glad this movie was made because it's very rare that the issue of surrogate mothers is looked at or examined. The issue I think needs to receive more attention. I hope this movie will air again I would like to watch it again.
