This heartwarming story of a man’s determination to adopt a child with social challenges may not appeal to young viewers due to many scenes of dialogue and adult-focused situations. However, there are few content concerns other than a handful of Christian terms of deity used as expletives and some moments of peril (such as a young character attempting suicide by jumping). A woman briefly mentions “growing breasts” as a turning point in grade school.
