This is a cute family movie. I had to hold in my tears just about three times. I am not a christian, but it was still an enjoyable family movie. And fear not, although it is a sad story, it has a happy ending. SPOILER: I thought that it was kind of lame that the mom died just as the kid was getting used to the place and his new family. You could tell that the mom was going to die because it was a christian formula movie.
