I loved this movie!
12 September 2004 | by nancy-50See all my reviews

I am the adoptive mother of a black son and he was not legally ours when I stumbled upon this movie while visiting my in-laws. I held him on my lap and cried during much of the film. This is a wonderful movie! I would watch it over and over if I could get it on DVD.

The white adoptive parents in this movie were clearly not people who wanted a child to love and I was sorry that the heroine had to live with them and never felt truly part of a family. However, to see her biological mother embrace her and have her realize at the end how much a part of several families she was warmed my heart. It contains a message of brotherhood and humanness that should touch all people.
