Warning: HUGE tearjerker! I cried for a good portion of this movie.
It is a very touching movie. Definitely something you would expect to see as a Hallmark movie. Another bonus, 5% of all proceeds of the sale of this movie goes to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This movie is inspired by a true story with actual pictures and information at the end of the movie. I watched this movie in two installments and it was hard to stop watching. I kept thinking about the family while I was at work. As it mentions in the movie, this story definitely has an impact on those who hear about it or watch it. This is a perfect movie for watching during the holidays as well as anytime during the year!
Based on a true story of hope and compassion. The Heart of Christmas will touch your heart and bring home the spirit of the holidays.

The Heart of Christmas is the greatest gift of all.
