In the TV movie Hearts of Spring, single dad Dr. Andy Sommers meets single mom Carly Ashby (Lisa Whelchel) in the park. They hit it off and go out on a date. Things get awkward when they discover that Carly is the mommy blogger who gave out parenting advice that Andy totally disagreed with — and he’d let her know it on her blog.
[Lisa Whelchel’s gospel album, All Because of You, was nominated for a Grammy in 1985]
