Short Film: Four Birthmothers - For Mothers
When state legislatures discuss bills that would allow adult adoptees access to their original birth certificates, opposition groups argue that birthmothers were promised privacy. But such groups are not composed of birthmothers (or first mothers, as is the preferred title today). Four mothers speak about their experiences - and feelings - highlighting the powerful and excruciating experience they each survived. Their brief stories reflect the sentiments of the vast majority of birthmothers in this country.
Feature Film: ADOPTED: for the life of me - for Vimeo
When we were able to get "For the Life of Me" onto PBS, it was necessary to shorten the film to 56 minutes. The name was changed to differentiate between the versions - the shorter one being called, "ADOPTED: for the life of me". The film had a wonderful three year run on PBS, and sometimes still pops up on their stations - always fun to see. There is a website dedicated to the film: www.adoptedforthelifeofme.com.
