Which one of us who have been touched by adoption is not stirred by these words from Psalm 139:16,
"You saw me before I was born."
I am very much looking forward to seeing October Baby. Susan's daughter, Cristi, was able to see a pre-screen of it and says it is absolutely wonderful. We want to encourage you all to watch this movie when it opens March 23rd-- it is a celebration of life, and a real look at one girl's struggle with the shocking surprise at finding out she was adopted. You can check out the October Baby website and watch the trailer to find out more. Hannah, "bewildered, angered, and confused, turns for support to Jason, her oldest friend. Encouraged by his adventurous spirit, Hannah joins his group of friends on a Spring Break road trip, embarking on a journey to discover her hidden past....and find hope for her unknown future. In the midst of her incredible journey, Hannah finds that life can be so much more than what you have planned."
This movie is a wonderful expression of God's heart for adoption, for birth mothers, and for life.
I also want to encourage you to watch this powerful story of the actress who plays Hannah's birth mother.
Susan tells me to write, "I BEG you to watch this!" Those of you who know her can just hear her voice, can't you? It is about redeeming love in our lives and in the lives of our children. All of us. All of them. No matter what. Really, watch it-- it is a true God-Story.
