Horribly Inaccurate and Offensive...
18 April 2005 | by svshougieSee all my reviews

As Becki Dilley's brother and son of Doris Stauffer... I am sickened every time this movie airs. The portrayal of my mother goes beyond inaccurate to the point of offensive. Meanwhile, the positive aspects of the storyline are lost in the glamorized negatives that are MANUFACTURED throughout the movie.

I LIVED the experience. I lived in the same house and helped take care of the children when they were initially brought from the hospital in that Summer of 1993 and I can honestly say that I wish ABC Family would officially never show this movie again.

If you have ever watched this movie, please do not believe what you have seen. Even Becki has written letters to various local newspapers stating that only approximately 20% of the movie is accurate and the writers at Wild Rice Productions should be ashamed of the fact they cast our mom as a vile character.

I welcome all responses and I thank you for your time, Steve Stauffer
