Excellent! Touches your heart! Great Family Christmas Movie!A+++++
20 December 2004 | by MelissaJHargettSee all my reviews

Wonderful movie. I have to watch it every year at Christmas. It is one of my favorites. I must buy this one for my children to watch in the future. A real touching movie. Zoe is a little girl who loves her father and doesn't understand why he left her and her mother. She searches for answers while God has special plans for her and her mother. Zoe gets in trouble at school and her mother had to leave work to pick her up. Her mother took her to a friends house so she could return to work. The lady tells Zoe when you hear music playing but there is no music really playing, means that there is an angel around. So Zoe makes a wish for a house just like her doll house and for her father to come home. Well an angel is sent to give Zoe her wish. Just not the way that she wanted it to happen but much better. God looks out for us and does what is in his best interest whether we like it or not.
