Great movie! Inspiring story
3 March 2011 | by ashleyparsons115See all my reviews

This has been based on a true story and a made for TV movie. It is an amazing story of a young girl who gets married and cannot have children, so her mother becomes her surrogate mother. It's such a touching story to see how much the mother goes through to give her daughter a baby. You really can see how much love is between the two of them.

Being that its based on a true story makes it such a sad and happy movie. It will have you on your toes and suck you in to every obstacle that the family has to go through.

This movie is very hard to find, but if you do, it's definitely worth watching. It's such a heart felt movie. I grew up watching this movie. It was one of my favorites. Great movie for a mother and daughter to watch. so much love.
