A Must See For All Children
21 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I was fortunate, or should I say blessed to have been able to watch this movie today. There are no words to describe it. Even "Phenominal" isn't sufficient. This movie brought tears to my eyes. Until today I had never heard of Loretta Claiborne. But as the old saying goes'"Better Late than Never At All. I truly believe that this movie should be shown in the schools, to let our children know and see firsthand just how blessed and fortunate they are. This woman was mentally challenged, but that did not stop her. She has accomplished so much. This woman is totally amazing. I could watch it over and over again and again. I can hardly wait to purchase this documentary of her life.
