Miracles from Heaven 2016
The film is based on the incredible true story of the Beam family.
The Beam family -- father Kevin, mother Christy, and daughters Anna, Adelynn, and Abbie -- live in Burleson, TX, right outside of Fort Worth. Anna is excited about a church trip to the Dallas aquarium, but she's not going to get to go. She becomes gravely ill, vomiting nonstop and seeing a parade of doctors who claim everything from "lactose intolerance" to "acid reflux".
Eventually, Anna is diagnosed with pseudo-obstruction motility disorder, robbing her of normal intestinal function, forced to begin a life of medicine and nasal feedings, while her pain grows by the day. As the days pass and Anna’s condition worsens, Christy begins to challenge her faith in God, unable to understand why her child is suffering...
