There is a scene where the main characters visit the aquarium (presumably in Boston as Christy and Anna are awaiting a call from Boston Children's Hospital) and a whale shark is seen inside a large tank. There are no whale sharks at the Boston Aquarium- in fact, the aquarium where this scene was filmed- Atlanta Georgia- does not look at all like Boston's aquarium. See more »

Christy Beam: [narrating] When I was growin' up, people didn't really talk about miracles. I'm not sure I understood what they were or if I believed in them. A miracle is defined as something not explicable by natural or scientific laws. But then how do you explain it? How does it happen? Who or what is behind it?

Wonderfuly done inspiring film!
5 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film is beautifully shot, and really well acted, seriously the best performance of Jennifer Gardner's career she really lived it! Every one in it did a good job but especially the little girl that is the main character. And its a true story! I really don't understand how anyone could not like this film. I'm an actress and fairly critical because I see film technically as well as story wise, but this one really stands up! The story was wonderful. I loved it! I cried my eyes out, I connected with the characters and cared about their journey and it left me thinking. In the end what more do we want from a film! I really hope Jennifer Gardner gets some recognition for this role she earned it!
