Great movie
28 January 2007 | by jaymanhattan24See all my reviews

This movie expresses the love that one person can have for a child that is not biologically there's. The movie was great and touched me with a passion. You fall in love with tommy as soon as you see him in the movie. The tenacity of tommy's father is great, and it has taught me a life lesson to keep plugging away if you believe in something. It has been awhile since a movie has touched my heart with such passion. This movie shows how love can be tapped from all angles. Tommy is the type of kid everyone wants, he is caring, loving, and happy to have someone that loves him. In this day and age, people become bombarded by what the public believes. This movie showed fight from the beginning to the end with tommy and his father against a government agency that did not want things to work out for them. This movies shows the power of adoption, and how adoption takes a kid with possibly no future and love, to happiness and growth. Highly recommended to anyone with a caring heart!
