It is a true story
30 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know that this is a true story. I went to school with the children from the second family. Including 'Sharon' (not her real name). I talked with 'Sharon's' younger brother (who has since passed away) back in the 90's. He told me that 'Sharon' had died in an accident, but did not tell me how or why. When I saw the movie; I cried for days.

By the way.... this did NOT take place during the 70's, and 80's.... more like the 50's, and 60's. It is odd that this story takes place in St. Louis, and in 1965 my family moved from where the actual town where this story originated to Missouri. That blew me away.

The reason that I contacted 'Sharon's' brother back in '94 is because I found out that I was illegally adopted, and I knew that he was a lawyer. I thought that he maybe could help me, but considering everything that he had gone through, I didn't ask.

This movie is a must see. It moved me so much that I want to see it again, but the emotion for me is heartbreaking because I knew, and loved these people.
