In CHARLIE'S CHRISTMAS WISH, Charlie is a Maltese terrier living in a shelter who just wants to find a home. She prays to God (John O'Hurley), who answers her prayer by sending a tween boy named Jimmy. Immediately smitten with Charlie, Jimmy adopts her, just in time for the return of his father John, a soldier who is returning five weeks early from a tour of duty in Afghanistan. The reason he's returning home early is because he experienced a traumatic incident that led to him struggling with PTSD. While John's wife Jill runs a bakery that's extremely busy due to the holiday season, John tries to adjust to civilian life, and the presence of Charlie, a dog that's much too small for his liking. But Charlie follows John around anyway as he tries to find work. He meets other vets, who connect him with a construction company. As John begins to befriend the other veterans, he sees firsthand their struggles, and soon the community at large sees a terrible injustice in that those who served our country in the military are homeless and struggling with mental health issues. As John grows to value and love Charlie, the town and church work together to find a way to provide shelter and treatment for any veterans in the community who need it.
