I loved this movie of these wonderful women. It had sad times and happy times and funny times. Makes you wonder how you would handle cancer and still want to have a baby . it was too hard on this gal and she died. But her memories will always be remembered with her baby living with the family left behind.

A little bit dated, but still a definite tear-jerker and wonderful film for women!
