Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Love My Way Home

I love MyWay Home. I set my arm every Sunday so I won’t fall asleep. The wanting to know each week is exciting. The actors and actresses are awesome. My biggest pet peeve is Hallmark you say this is an Hour Show which is a lie. It’s a half an hour. The other half is commercial. Give Your Dedicated Watchers at least 45 minutes and 15 minutes of commercials Please. !!!!! Have a wonderful day. I hope Jacob did fall into the pond and finds his way back to his Mom, sister and niece.
