Good clean fun!
21 August 2003 | by (Lafayette, CA) – See all my reviews

My husband and I just happened upon this fine movie while channel surfing. Julie Harris was outstanding, as were the other main characters. Loved the "pitch" at the end encouraging adoption. Though predictable, the story was enjoyable.
