October Baby – A Must-See Movie

My wife and I had the opportunity last night to see a prescreening of this movie.  It’s a story about a 19 year old girl who finds out that she was adopted.  She also learns that her birthmother tried to abort her, but the procedure failed and miraculously she survived.

She then embarks on a journey to find her birthmother in an attempt to find out who she really is and to get closure.  It’s a wonderful movie about the beauty of live, love, and God’s forgiveness.

The movie opens nationwide on March 23rd.  It will no doubt cause a stir due to its subject matter.  I anticipate that some people will have a knee-jerk reaction and boycott (if not picket) the movie without ever seeing it.  They will likely argue that it’s just “another Pro Life movie that bashes women who have to make a hard choice.”  Having seen the movie myself, let me tell you that such a description could not be farther from the truth.

This movie handles a very sensitive subject in a very careful, loving way.  I don’t believe that anyone who actually watches it with an open mind could be offended.  The story does reveal a harsh reality that sometimes there are survivors of abortions, a reality that most people haven’t even heard of.  However, it also deals with forgiveness and putting one’s past mistakes behind them.

Finally, the movie is a good testimony to the power of adoption.  Having had many adoption clients in my career, I especially enjoyed this aspect of the movie.

Check out the website at www.octoberbabymovie.net.  Watch the movie when it comes out on March 23rd and make your OWN decision about it.

    Praise God! I got to meet Gianna when she was in Alaska last year for our local crisis pregnancy centers 25th anniversary, which happened to be the 25 year mark since I had my abortion after being raped at 15. I know Gods forgiveness and I have been forgiven, I am so thankful for movies like this in hopes that nobody ever chooses abortion again but if they do that will find Gods forgiveness as well.
