If you believe in angels you know, as I do, they can come in all sizes. This wonderful British film is a story that many families in today's world may have experienced. It is a story about one couple, Alec and Zooey, and they want a child so badly but cannot have one and they cannot understand this tragedy. So they consider adoption.
