When young Timothy suddenly comes into the lives of Cindy and Jim Green, they learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
Oh.My.Goodness!!! This is such a GOOD movie!! Don’t even bother reading the rest of this and head straight to the theater!! You won’t be sorry!! My MIL and I watched this together and both thought is was WONDERFUL! This is such a heart warming movie! It will make you appreciate the people you have in your life and want to “make better mistakes” with. I was tearing up with the first few minutes of the movie(over the clip above)… for me I could really empathize with thinking about a child you may never have. I had a miscarriage before we were blessed with Alex and could whole heartedly relate to the Greens describing their “would be” child. However don’t think that this is just a sappy movie because it is not, you will laugh (a lot), maybe cry, get irritated, be happy, but in the end you’ll will have hope and feel that anything is possible!! I HIGHLY recommend this movie. Take the whole family and leave feeling uplifted!!
