A Mother's Gift is a 1995 made-for-television film that tells the story of a young woman named Olivia Greer, played by Nancy McKeon, who is a struggling single mother. Her life takes a turn for the better when she meets a former baseball player turned high school coach named Brian McMillan, played by Adrian Pasdar. The film follows Olivia's struggles to provide for herself and her young son, Jack, as they try to make a new life for themselves.

As the movie opens, we see Olivia working as a waitress in a run-down diner in a small town in Texas. She is barely making enough money to make ends meet and is struggling to provide for her son. Things start to change for Olivia when she meets Brian, who is the new high school baseball coach in town. Brian is immediately drawn to Olivia and her son and offers to help her in any way he can.

Despite her initial reluctance to accept help from a stranger, Olivia soon realizes that Brian is genuine in his offer and accepts his help. Brian helps Olivia to find a new job and even offers her a place to stay for a while when she can't afford rent. As Olivia starts to rebuild her life, she and Brian become closer and eventually fall in love.

However, their relationship is not without its challenges. Olivia's ex-husband, Jack's father, is still in the picture and is causing trouble for Olivia. He tries to take Jack away from her and makes life difficult for her and Brian. Meanwhile, Brian's father, played by legendary actor James Gammon, is struggling with health issues, which puts a strain on Brian's relationship with his father.

Despite these challenges, Olivia and Brian's love for each other grows stronger. Brian helps Olivia to see that she deserves to be happy, and that she can create a better life for herself and her son. As the movie comes to a close, Olivia and Brian face their biggest challenge yet as they try to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of their happiness.
