Hollis drew her Wish, her Want. She drew a picture of a family. Hollis had that family in the Regan's, but fear of attachment and motional turmoil caused her to run away. As Josie's forgetfulness grows worse, Hollis is forced into the role of caretaker. Through her artwork and her care of Josie, Hollis Woods finds her family.

Was a great show
4 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had not planned on watching the movie because I work early in the morning. The show was so good I stayed up till 11:00pm. I wished I had taped it for my husband, who had been unable to watch. It was a wonderful show and I hope they make it available on DVD so I can watch it again and again.

The fact that the show was spell binding and contained mystery as well as suspense without sex, violence, smoking, drinking or bad language follows along with the quality of shows presented by Hallmark and proves they are not necessary to make a show worth watching.

Jodelle Ferland proved to be a very convincing actress. Sissy Spacek was as usual absolutely wonderful. I love all of her movies. I do not want to say anything that would give the show away, but it warmed the heart and made you feel that good things do happen.
