A very warm Christmas story with the true meaning of Christmas.
24 January 2001 | by (Salt Lake City, Utah) – See all my reviews

My husband and I were enjoying a wonderful Christmas in 1984. It was wonderful because our "special" little daughter age 2 and born with severe problems was able to be home with us. Her other Christmas' were spent at Primary Children's Medical Center. It was quite late and we were setting up our oldest daughter's Santa Claus gifts, when we started watching this wonderful movie. We were extremely moved by this movie and now, hind sight being 20/20 vision, wished we would have thought to tape it. I think it's a shame that this movie can't be shared with everyone on a regular basis because in my opinion it's right up there with "It's a wonderful Life" which seems to be the only older Christmas movie that the networks seem to be able to find. I have searched all the various cable and local channels each holiday season to see if it will magically appear, but to my disappointment it never does. We just found this web-site last night because once again, we thought about it and expressed our desire to see it again. I don't understand why it hasn't aired again - at least to my knowledge it hasn't, and I would love to have it in our video collection. It would be nice to show our children what "quality" Christmas movies are - because each year they get more rare. If someone has the power - please contact whomever has the ability to make this movie available. Thank you for creating this web-site.
