A Father for Brittany is a Lifetime Movie aired on television in 1998 and based on a true story. Andrew McCarthy and Teri Polo play a husband and wife who try to adopt a child.


Keith Lussier - a hard working man - and his wife Kim - a speech therapist - are high school sweethearts unable to conceive. The couple decides to adopt a baby, but Kim is more interested in the idea than Keith. Just before their baby girl arrives from Korea, Kim is diagnosed with uterine cancer. During her struggle to fight it, their new adopted daughter arrives. They name her Brittany. Keith's fears of becoming a father fade away as he gets to know his new daughter.

When Kim dies before the adoption is finalized, Keith loses Brittany because the adoption agency says they do not allow single parent adoptions. Keith goes to court to bring his daughter home and wins. Keith and Brittany are reunited.
