October Baby

Thursday, March 22, 2012

There is a new movie coming out (tomorrow) that I am eager to see, October Baby.  Here is an overview of the plot:

"You saw me before I was born." Psalm 139:16 (NLT)
As the curtain rises, Hannah hesitantly steps onto the stage for her theatrical debut in college. Yet before she can utter her first lines, Hannah—unscripted—collapses in front of the stunned audience.
After countless medical tests, all signs point to one underlying factor: Hannah's difficult birth. This revelation is nothing compared to what she then learns from her parents: she was actually adopted … after a failed abortion attempt.
Bewildered, angered, and confused, Hannah turns for support to Jason, her oldest friend. Encouraged by his adventurous spirit, Hannah joins his group of friends on a Spring Break road trip, embarking on a journey to discover her hidden past … and find hope for her unknown future.
In the midst of her incredible journey, Hannah finds that life can be so much more than what you have planned.

It is a story of discovery the past and learning to move past it in forgiveness.  There is a real life woman that has actually lived this story!  She is an awesome speaker and an activist against abortion. Her name is Gianna Jessen.  Here is a part of a speech she gave in Australia.  You can find part two on You Tube by typing in her name.  While this is a long video, the story is amazing!
