My whole family enjoyed this movie. Greart prolife movie from the victim's perspective: the baby's! The movie also shows the power of forgiveness to bring about healing for both the child and the mother who had tried to abort her.

I was really impressed with this movie when I saw it in the theater, so I purchased a copy to share with family and friends. This movie touches on several topics: abortion, adoption, rejection, forgiveness, and healing, to name a few. But the way it comes at the abortion issue is unique - it is revealed through the eyes of a girl who finds out she is the survivor of an abortion attempt. Since you are already connected to the girl from the beginning of the movie, you want to follow her journey and find out why her birth mother didn't want her. This movie shows compassion to all concerned, including the birth mother.
One "Rotten Tomatoes" review I read stated that the premise of the movie is so highly unlikely that it is ridiculous. Well, tell that to Gianna Jesson, the inspiration for the movie. I remember hearing her interviewed a few times on the radio several years ago. Gianna suffers from cerebral palsy due to her mother's attempted abortion of Gianna. In fact, Gianna sings one of the songs in the movie (soundtrack). Her testimony is heart-wrenching, but her peace and grace are evident, also.
This movie is a real tear-jerker, so have the Kleenex ready! The actress testimony at the end is very powerful. I thought the acting was very good, especially since this is a Christian-produced movie (we know how these always get a bad rap). This should be shared with everyone you know, especially young women. I will be buying a copy for my local library, too.

Need to get this out to more viewers. People seem so unware of the consequences of abortion and the healing power of God through our forgiveness. So heart warming to see it ended with forgiveness and love. Thank God for loving, caring adoptive parents!!
