Lifetime's Miracle Run

Hi everyone

On Monday, August 9th, there's a movie on Lifetime airing called "Miracle Run". It airs at 9:00 PM ET/PT. Here's the synopsis:

"Single mom Corrine Morgan has just discovered that her seven-year-old twin boys, Steven and Phillip, are autistic. In one fell swoop, her boyfriend tells her that he can't handle the responsibility of playing parent to her kids, and the school district admits that it doesn't want to supervise the twins anymore. To top it off, she is struggling to make ends meet. While any other woman might have waved a white flag and surrendered to all these obstacles, the spirited Morgan decides to fight back for herself and, more importantly, for her boys. Through pure determination she helps Steven and Phillip make incredible strides, surpassing everyone's expectations. Inspired by actual events, "Miracle Run" is sure to make you believe that anything is possible in your own life and that you too can tackle insurmountable odds and come out a winner. Grab your friends and family and cozy up to this moving Lifetime original film. "

This is based on a true story and I would love to get as many FC readers as possible to watch this movie and then chat on it here. Are you guys up for it?

You can count me in!!

I had already seen some info about it while watching Lifetime and knew I wanted to see it.

Now I can commandeer the T.V. with the excuse that it is "homework". (I've learned a thing or two from my kids!!)

I have been seeing the previews for this movie and I thought it looked really good, so I had already decided to scrunch down Monday night and watch it. But what a great idea to be able to discuss it afterwards.

I have been seeing ads about this movie for a bout a month now and am anxiously waiting for it. Hopefully I will be able to watch it.


my 6 year old wants to know what this is? I told her it is mommy and her friends from FC sitting down and chatting.

This sounds like a great movie and one I would be interested in having a special needs child. However, I don't have cable so will try and get someone to tape it for me.

This will be great! Looks like we may have stumbled onto a new "club". LOL Let's see how this goes, and let's see how many others will watch with us. Then we will just post here after the movie and discuss it in this thread
