This short video is an excerpt from my documentary feature film “Imaginary Mothers,” which is now in production.
Since I’ve begun this documentary I’ve come across amazing blogs and websites that speak for adoptees and natural parents. I found the Adopted Life Website particularly moving, not necessarily for the statements made by the authors, but for the amount of searches and postings made by adoptees and natural parents⏤it’s overwhelming. It breaks my heart to see the deep desire people have to connect to their natural relatives. Adoption advocates might think twice about their message if they took the time to go through the hundreds of names on this list. The postings include adoptees looking for birth parents and parents looking for their natural children.
