When Dr. Drew Carter (Mel Fair) lost his son in a car accident while his wife was driving, he didn’t expect to lose her as well even though she wasn’t hurt. But since the accident, Julia (Musetta Vander), has become emotionally absent to Drew and to their daughter Kayla (Aubyn Cole).
When Dr. Miller (Lee Majors) sends Drew Johnny (Jerry Phillips), a new leukemia patient who is a foster child, the wheels start to turn and Drew sees a chance to heal his family. But Julia is deeply opposed to the idea of adopting this sickly kid and remains in her perpetual guilt-ridden state of grief even two years after the accident.
With Kayla feeling more and more rejected by her mother and Drew feeling more distant from his wife, he decides to take matters into his own hands and adopts Johnny anyway. Johnny doesn’t know what he’s in for but loves God and is convinced he’s here for a special reason, but he doesn’t know what it is until he enters Dr. Carter’s life.
Because Julia remains in a perpetual guilt-ridden state of grief, she is opposed to the idea of adopting this terminally ill boy.

Johnny doesn’t know what he is in for, but is convinced he is here for a special mission; a mission that is revealed when he enters Dr. Carter’s world.
