This movie changed my life!
13 August 2004 | by AutumnTwinSee all my reviews

I am an adoptee, and this movie was the final factor in helping me decide that I was ready to find my family.

I saw that movie when it aired on NBC and launched my journey of finding my birth-family. A few months later, I was reunited with my birth mother and father, EIGHT older siblings, TWENTY nieces and nephews (I now have twenty-four)...and since then, I've gained four great nieces.

This movie really helped me see things from other perspectives than my own as an adoptee. I saw what my mother or siblings might be wondering about me and knew that it was time I searched for them.

I've never seen this movie aired since then...I hope NBC or maybe Lifetime or something decides to air it again someday so I can tape it and show my family the movie that changed my life!
