6 March 2016 | by (Fresno, CA) – See all my reviews

I only found this by doing a cable search for Christmas movies and the title came up. I watch every single Christmas movie that start showing on Hallmark or Lifetime every year. This was one of the last ones that I viewed, (March 2016) as I was in Rio from Christmas through beginning of February. For the first 15 minutes I was not getting into the story at all. It wasn't touching me. Not sure when it finally starting registering my interest, but it was some time coming. I also noticed it was on UP channel which I was not familiar with, nor had any previous viewing. Then I started attaching to and enjoying the main two characters. The lead girl, Miss Riley, I found so unique and engaging. Such a delight and joy about her. Of course, she was playing a real life person, who had actually lived this life. But I really enjoyed this girl a lot. Then I went to IMDb today to put my vote on the movie and I see that Amber Riley was on the cast of Glee. So she should continue to get better roles. She is a very credible and engaging young lady. Enjoyed this very much!! But unfortunately, this movie did not get too many viewers, as evidenced by the minor number of voters. (87 at the time of this writing). And that is because it was not on Hallmark. I watch a lot of TV, but I'd never heard of UP. I see that it is a channel that blacks should know more about it and hopefully view. There is another family series, "Lincoln Heights",that I have watched a few episodes since the "My One Christmas Wish". UP just doesn't have a large enough audience. Hopefully, that will change. I have recorded, from the first episode, "Black-ish" and continue to do so. It is my favorite family sit-com. Anthony Anderson is genius and lovable!! So is Amber Riley!! Everyone, black or white, should watch "Blackish", at least 5 episodes. I fear that too many whites avoid it; glad I didn't. I also wish, everyone who enjoys the Halmark Christmas movies would have also seen this one!!
