Whenever the wonderful Rue McLanahan appears in an episode of something, you know it's going to be special and this episode of 'Touched By An Angel' certainly was.
Rue plays the head of a snobbish family which goes back several generations as is known for philanthropy. Her son, Harrison, and his wife, Barbara, are desperate to have a child but even with fertility treatment, they are proving unsuccessful.
When a little boy named Manny whom the family have been sponsoring through a child welfare association turns up on their doorstep, there is a great deal of distance shown by Harrison but Barbara and matriarch Amelia are soon attached to the child.
It soon turns out that Manny isn't who he says her is but, then again, as Tess tells Monica, neither are the rest of the family ...
A wonderful, not to be missed episode.
