Safe Harbor 2009
Not Rated | 1h 25min | Drama | TV Movie 30 May 2009
Doug and Robbie are about to set sail on a long trip when they unexpectedly find themselves foster parenting a group of troubled teenage boys. The experience changes their lives for the better, and they decide to stay in town and run the foster home for boys permanently.
HUH – I’m a little puzzled about the user review that ridiculed this movie as a typical run of the mill “feel good” Hallmark movie. This movie is a real to life story about a charity called “Safe Harbor Boy’s Home” in Jacksonville Florida. According to them this movie is extremely accurate with the exception of a large wave depicted for effect in one scene. Over 800 troubled youth have passed through their doors since their inception. They are the only parents many of these boys have ever had and many of these boys still call and send them cards for special days. I had looked this information up when the movie first aired, because this charity is in Jacksonville,FL and I live in St Augustine just to the south. If you want to watch something that is real, that tugs on your heart strings give this movie a watch.
