Candace Cameron stars in this eye opening drama as a work at home mom who is having her own family problems. During Halloween, she is walking her child around a block when she notices someone putting up Christmas decorations. She inquires about it and is told about Dax’s struggle. When she goes back home and she begins reading a blog dedicated to the story of Dax and his family.
This made for TV movie is a little slow to start, but as it unfolds you begin to see the loving and heart wrenching struggles that the families experience. This moving story put me to tears and my heart broke as I watched this family struggle to understand what was happening to their precious little boy. I am such a sob when it comes to sad stories.
The movie does have some happy moments though thanks to Dax’s unbreakable spirit and the eventual realization by his parents that they should “cherish every moment” they have left with him. When Dax is released from the hospital because the treatment has not worked, his father puts up a Christmas tree in October to give his son one last Christmas. As the Locke families’ neighbors find out about their situation, they all decorate for Christmas too and the experience moves another family to make decisions in their own lives to slow down their pace and cherish every moment.
