Adoption Movies

Thursday, April 16, 2009

next time you have some time on your hands and if you are looking to learn more about adoption and hear some real life stories...go here and watch some of the videos.
It is hard to find accurate presentations of adoption stories these days...they all seem so old fashioned and are usually full of 'adoption myths'. But these are some good real-life ones. The first one 'Neumann/Jolly' is really good if you are looking for a story about an open domestic adoption. And the 'Champan/Turner/Kemp' one is the story about Steven Curtis Champan's family's journey to China to adopt their girls.
But I am warning you...have the tissues handy and be prepared to fight the urge to run (not walk) to your nearest adoption agency office and sign yourself up to adopt (as if it was that easy!)....it will tug at your heart. I want to do it all over again someday and we aren't even finished with this one! Adoption is such a blessing.
Just thought I would pass that along.

I can't wait to check it out! I've always wanted to adopt - ever since I read the book Lost In The System (years ago).

Thanks for the warning about the tissues. I was crying when I watched Steven Curtis Chapman's story, cuz of the horrible accident that happened last May.
