Another little Ingalls comes into the world
12 May 2006 | by (California - Film Capitol of the World) – See all my reviews

The Ingalls family is happy and excited. Caroline (Karen Grassle) is going to have another baby. With three daughters already, Charles (Michael Landon) hopes for a son. Before long, however, Caroline seems less enthusiastic about her impending motherhood. At first Charles is convinced she is just tired due to her condition, but he soon becomes worried that there is more to her depression than meets the eye.

Caroline has become convinced that Charles will be disappointed and unhappy if her baby is not a boy, and this overshadows her happiness and begins to affect their entire family.

Another story that cuts to the heart of marriage and family. The Ingalls are faced with something many real families have had to experience. The stress of another child, another mouth to feed, another girl (or boy) in a family composed of all one sex when the other is strongly desired.
