26 January 2002 | by stephgatorSee all my reviews

This movie is absolutely wonderful. I have enjoyed watching time and time again. It has wonderful acting and is wonderful heart-warming story. I highly recommend this to any and every family. Keshia Pullian does a great job, and I wish I could receive this movie again, because mine unfortunately got deleted. WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS TIMES!!
