A movie of true love and forgiveness
28 May 2003 | by (Jacksonville,FL) – See all my reviews

This movie was one for the record! The act of love, forgiveness and kindness that this movie portrayed was one that is all to often not seen or even heard of. When you see this unbelievable family move from pain to forgiveness it makes you realize the true meaning of unconditional love. After watching this documentary it made me analyze my life and see what really matters and that is the family that is created from love and marriage. The rest of your family or friends can turn their backs on you or not agree with what you stand for but when your spouse and children stand by you no matter what then you are truly blessed beyond words. I think this is a movie everyone should watch and hopefully learn the same lesson I learned from this remarkable film!
