Please tell me what part of this movie would make anyone say, "Boy, this really makes me want to adopt and jump into that can of worms!"? I really am concerned about this movie. Being on the inside of adoption, this movie seems to be exploiting and sensationalizing adoption in a very nightmarish and unrealistic situation.
How many adopted children will hear of or see this movie and then live in fear that this tug-of-war might happen to them? How many adoptive parents will see this movie and have it shake them to the core with fears of legal nightmares? How many potential adoptive families will be turned off to the idea and run scared in the opposite direction because of what might (unrealistically) happen? How is that pro-adoption? The movie wraps up in the end with a bunch of warm fuzzies as the viewers collectively sigh in relief, "well, I'm glad that worked out!" ...while everyone who is actually involved in adoption is left reeling about all the what-ifs...
I don't see how this movie could helpful to the cause of adoption.
My husband was not pleased when he realized I had selected this movie from the local Redbox as he was more in the mood for an action or comedy flick. I convinced him that it would be an amazing movie. I was wrong. I agree with others that complain that the beautiful message of God that is skillfully woven into the book, has been stripped from the movie. I was expecting a beautiful and entertaining Christian film on the level of "Facing the Giants" (An all time favorite of myself and my husband) but, instead, experienced a hollowed out shell of the book I had once savored. If I had not read the book or expected a Christian film, then I would have given a higher rating for interesting storyline and cast performance. I had a high, yet not unreasonable, expectation of this film based on what I've come to know of the author, who actually helped with production. Sadly, this expectation was not met.
Would I watch again? - No

It is absolutely nothing like the fantastic book that Karen Kingsbury wrote. It is very secular and the book is very spiritual. Read morePublished 4 months ago by J
