Storyline

Due to finances that weren't as solid as she thought, the sudden death of Ester Hobbes' affluent husband leaves her with nothing but a boarding house in Georgia as her only untouched asset. The stipulation is that she must immediately move in and establish residency. This she does with the thought of moving in, systematically moving its residents out and selling, but it turns out that the residents are a struggling Christian couple fostering five orphaned and/or abandoned kids - all of whom don't want Ester there, and leaving Ester wondering what to do next.

Touching, but Not Fantastic
1 April 2013 | by (Bourbonnais, IL) – See all my reviews

Pretty good (but not great) for a Christian movie. Nonetheless, I would still recommend it, largely in part because of its message. It had many of the ups-and-downs of your typical Christian movie -- clean, family- friendly, Christian message, sub-par acting, and the feel of a Lifetime movie.

While I may be a little down on the acting job (better than I have seen in some other Christian movies, but still sub-par), the story is very inspiring. And ultimately, THAT'S what this movie (and the vast majority of other Christian movies) means to emphasize. It serves to shed light on the issue of foster care, and the need for people (especially Christians?) to step up and perhaps help take care of these kids.

I used to spend my summers working at a camp for kids who were in the foster system because they had been abused or neglected by their own parents. Also, my wife and I have discussed the possibility of adopting children, or (if not adopting) fostering children. So needless to say, this film was certainly moving and touching. I know that not everyone is called to adopt or take on foster children, but I still recommend this movie to any Christian out there.
