Whose Child Was This?
17 December 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

It's Christmas time and reporter William R. Moses hasn't had a decent story to his byline for a long time. He welcomes a chance to go to Texas for a human interest story, but his real motivation is to stop in Clearwater, Texas to find out the mystery of his birth.

Moses has no family so to speak and was raised as a foundling. He's a little jealous of wife Megan Fellows with whom he will spend Christmas once again with her family.

In Clearwater, Moses does find the mystery of his birth and the reason why a whole lot of people are trying to keep him from finding out.

Christmas Child is a nice enough family holiday classic. With Christian singer Steven Curtis Chapman playing the part of a preacher in the film, it was guaranteed from the start to have a built in audience appeal. Chapman was fine in the role, truth be told the part was no stretch for him. In the film his character and his wife adopt a young foundling child, in real life Chapman and his wife adopted three Asian orphans.

Christmas Child does have a heartstring tugging ending, but one that is totally in keeping with the spirit of the movie. There is one character in this film who gets one fabulous Christmas present.
