Storyline

The first few doctors she takes her sons to are unable to diagnose them with any problem, saying that they are just fine; fortunately, Corrine takes her sons to a specialist who diagnoses the boys with Autism. Corrine's initial reaction is that of shock. She does not like the idea that her sons are autistic, and leaves the hospital angrily. She does, however, end up realizing that the specialist was correct. When she tells her husband about their autism, he says he doesn't want to deal with the autism, so she decides to leave him.

The school accuses her of... Written by Anonymous

very good movie
31 January 2005 | by surfjunkie26See all my reviews

I am also a parent of an autistic child. This movie touched my heart, and filled me with hope for my already talented boy. In some scenes, of the movie, I could relate with everything that was happening ...from the overwhelming start, when the mother finds out the diagnosis, to the inspirational ending, when the boys focus on their talents and overcome their obstacles..my little guy is 6 yrs. old , but is already a runner at his school. he takes pride in all his school work. This movie is great. The actors in this movie did a very good job. especially the children and teenagers who played Steven and Phillip. Kudos to Lifetime Television for airing such an inspirational movie.
