LOS ANGELES, Oct. 3, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Trinity Broadcasting Network's exclusive Smile of a Child kid's channel has been named a finalist for the 2012 CableFax Program Awards, which recognize the cable industry's best programming content. Smile of a Child's entry, the television movie Just Where I Belong, has been selected as a finalist in the category "Best of Faith-based Show or Series." In addition actress Florence Henderson, who stars in the movie, has been named a finalist in two categories -- "Best Actor/Actress in a Family-Friendly" program and "Best/Actor/Actress/Host." The CableFax Program Awards presentation is scheduled for October 30 in New York City.

"We are really excited for this opportunity to highlight Smile of a Child and one of its great family programs," said SMILE's program director Brenda Rossman. "The competition for the CableFax Program Awards is always intense, and to have one of our exclusive movies selected as a finalist is a real honor."

Just Where I Belong tells the heartwarming, Christmas-themed story of a lonely foster child (Sophie Bolen) whose life and heart are healed through her friendship with an eccentric farm woman (Florence Henderson) and the injured rabbit the two of them nurse back to health.

Since its launch on Christmas Eve 2005, Smile of a Child has grown into the nation's premier faith-based children's network, received in over 22 million households though cable and satellite providers like Comcast, Charter, Verizon FiOS, AT&T U-verse, and Sky Angel, as well as over the air in 35 major U.S. markets. In addition, Smile of a Child is available online through TBN's streaming portal iTBN.org. The Parents Television Council was so impressed with Smile of a Child that it awarded the network its coveted Entertainment Seal of Approval -- the only children's network to hold that distinction.

"Just Where I Belong is representative of our commitment at SMILE to provide the kind of programming 24-7 that parents can trust for their kids," said Ms. Rossman. "Every week we get e-mails and letters from moms, dads, and grandparents, thanking us for a network that is helping them to re-enforce faith and positive values that their children and grandchildren can embrace for a lifetime."
