Sally Powell: Hey mom, it's me. I'm sorry that I didn't come see you sooner. But, um, now that I know where you are, I'll come a lot more often. I promise. I'm doing a lot better, just like you said I would. And Kay's taking really good care of me. I think about you all the time, mom.

Family Issues
6 April 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Back when I was younger I knew a street kid who told me once if not a hundred times that all he ever wanted in life was a family. He and his sister were taken away as toddlers by the state who declared the parents unfit. He died at the age of 26 so the state did a remarkable job at raising him, he died of AIDS.

I'd like to think that somewhere somehow that there was a father like C. Thomas Howell who grieved for his absence or a ghost mother like Sarah Aldrich who materialized at a critical moment in Lyndsy Fonseca's life. Most of all I'd like to think that judge like Jaclyn Smith came into his life as she did in Fonseca's life in Ordinary Miracles. That never happened though.

Both Smith and Fonseca are having a lot of family issues. Smith is such a hardnosed judge that she nearly reported her old man who was a lawyer for asking an out of channels favor. But she takes a personal interest in Fonseca's situation and what happens is nothing less than your garden variety Ordinary Miracle.

This is a nice well done film shot on location in San Diego with some sincere performances all around. Good Hallmark production.
