I agree with Sheila Beers above
9 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

And by coincidence I was originally from Indiana. I had a somewhat similar circumstance when I was a teen, and there was a guy back then I should have married and I didn't. I had a mother like the woman in this movie too. This movie shows how life's regrets can turn out. That is a good lesson to learn. It is a good TV movie. Nothing to be ashamed of. Even my husband was interested. Actors were good, especially Anne Jillian and Ellen Burstyn as the formidable mother who forces her teen to give up her baby. Movies do not always have to be about enormously serious or horrible subjects to have a good message! Consider this movie to be a slightly better than average made for TV movie with a subject that is credible to those of us who grew up in the 50s and 60s, when an unmarried teen was shunned more than you younger people can believe.
