When lives intertwine during Christmas, hope is the one unifying gift. Patty Addison, a social worker, throws herself into finding homes for children in need. With her marriage to Mark, an airline pilot, on the rocks, Patty feels it’s the wrong time to temporarily take in 9-year-old Emily, who has just lost her single mother in a car accident. However, sweet Emily quickly wins over Patty and Mark. As the Addison’s start to reconnect with each other, it is revealed that they lost their son in a similar accident two years before.
The ties run deeper– at the same time in the very same town, Dr. Nathan Andrews, a father-to-be, struggles to find the parents of a young man who died in his ER. While Mark takes a troubled friend of Sean’s, the friend who ultimately holds the key to Emily’s special Christmas gift, under his wing. In a twist of fate, all is almost lost when Emily runs away, but Patty and Mark come together to find her in a true measure of healing and faith.
Family comes in many forms. It’s through the love of one little girl that the lives of many are brought together during what turns out to be a most joyful time of the year.
