Now, I'm a sucker for Hallmark movies anyway, but this one hit home and I ended up getting very little homeschool planning done. The kids in the movie, many of whom have autism, Down syndrome, and learning disabilities in real life, reminded me of Ryne in so many ways -- amazing kids who just need a chance and a little understanding from the world around them. I thought the movie was wonderfully done, and I cried through the whole thing.
The night I saw the movie it was on ABC, but it will be making it's premiere on the Hallmark Channel Saturday night. So if you get that channel (I don't, sniff, sniff), I highly recommend watching this movie, hopefully with your kids. My kids were already in bed, so they didn't get to see it, but I went out and bought a copy, so we'll be watching it as a family soon.
Have a wonderful weekend!
