It is a story that will take you on a personal journey with Debbie and Steve Miller as they give birth to their son Michael, who died in her womb. You will walk with her as she faces the death of her special son and as she endures the pain, suffering and fear that accompanied unbelievable health problems. You will be caught in the midst of this story and wonder how she or you will survive.
Take a deep breath as the specialist brings her most unbearable news-that she must undergo an operation to amputate both of her legs or die. She makes a bold decision, to die. Debbie has reached her breaking point, she believes that God doesn’t care and wants nothing to do with Him. The event to follow will prove to all that witness it…that God’s mercy is REAL!
This is a moving and powerful film! Everyone will SEE Through A Mother's Eyes. God's love is greater than any hatred a person can harbor. This focus and the depth of a mother's love are the two main themes of this movie, incredibly based on a true story. Debbie Miller is close to giving birth to her first male child after having two daughters, only to learn the child has died in her womb. She must deliver the child and deal with the sorrow that follows, including buying a small casket, looking at the cradle which he will never use in his bedroom, and even winding up in the maternity ward to be treated for a serious health issue when the Intensive Care Unit is full. Just when all seems dark and her very life might be lost, a pastor and fellow Christians show up at her bedside to pray...and a miracle occurs.
Without giving the ending away, let's just say Debbie is given a second chance to realize her dreams in life. Elizabeth Houlihan is wonderful as Debbie Miller in portraying pain and loss. We are happy to award this amazing movie our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus due to the mature theme. This movie will renew your hope to believe in miracles!
