Miracle Child is a 1993 American television film based on the novel Miracle at Clement's Pond by Patricia Pendergraft. It was filmed in Florida[1] and produced by Steve White Productions.[2] It is part of the Disney Family Classics line.[3]


A despairing young widow (Crystal Bernard) who abandons her baby at pond-side among bulrushes and a travelin' man (John Terry) who's fighting to reclaim his own son (Graham Sack) are drawn together. A baby plops out of a rainy, stormy sky into the arms of the town's beloved, vaguely addled spinster (Grace Zabriskie). Miracles suddenly reverse the fortunes of the town as drought and unemployment disappear, only to be replaced by boosterism and greed.[4]
