Powerful message of love & forgiveness
This is a real tear-jerker. Have a box of tissue handy!
A great film for young adults (not really appropriate for kids under 12) to watch with their parents. Geared toward college students on up.
When the main character, Hannah Lawson learns that the reasons for her health challenges are related to the fact that she was born prematurely as the result of a failed abortion, she sets out on a journey to find her biological mother. Conflict arises between the girl and her adoptive
parents, as she feels betrayed for not having been told the truth. The
more facts she uncovers on her quest, the more grieved and confused
Hannah becomes. With the support of her faithful friend, Jason, and a
belated confession from her parents, the girl comes to grips with who
she is and is able to communicate God's grace to the woman who tried to
end her life so many years ago.
If your life has been touched in any way by the issue of abortion, this
is a must-see for you. Not at all the condemning kind of movie you
might expect, this film shows the issue from all sides--the young woman
with the crisis pregnancy, the clinic worker, the child and her
adoptive parents. See how God can take a disastrous situation and make
something beautiful of it.
BTW--You also need to see the special feature with the film-makers
discussing the movie. The actress who played the biological mother had
a real-life experience that parallels what she portrayed. Making this
movie actually aided in her healing!
