Storyline

A despairing young widow who abandons her baby at pond-side among bulrushes and a man who's fighting to reclaim his own son are drawn together. A baby plops out of a rainy, stormy sky into the arms of the town's beloved, vaguely addled spinster. Miracles suddenly reverse the fortunes of the town as drought and unemployment disappear, only to be replaced by boosterism and greed.

Very Heartwarming
18 November 2011 | by timothy-alessiSee all my reviews

As an extra, I watched this movie being made. I was very impressed with the outcome. Much better than many big screen films. Too bad it's not shown again. Especially with how things are today in the world. We need more "feel good" films like this one. Crystal Bernard and Cloris Leachman were at their best! It is unfortunate that quality films such as this one are unavailable on DVD today. At least I've been unable to locate a copy of "Miracle Child". I believe it only ran/showed once on network TV. On the set, the entire cast and crew interacted well with everyone including the extras. I was impressed. I've been on other movie sets where there was not much harmony, if any. An excellent film for the entire family. Even tough guys will like it, and perhaps even get watery eyes.
