Grace Sunar plays Claire in A Christmas Tree Grows In Colorado.  Image:  Crown Media A Sweet Story About Adoption Much like Christmas Town , this movie is about the profound impact adoption has on children stuck in "the system," wondering if anyone will ever take them home and love them like a real family.

It's Christmas, and every radio station is playing, Wouldn't Be Christmas-- the duet between Averie Davis and Jesse Collins.   As Jesse tours small towns as a solo artist, Wouldn't Be Christmas  is the most requested song by fans, but he won't perform it alone.  It's an ever "present" reminder that the success he had as a duo with Averie is still out of reach for him on h
