When I married Jean, adoption issues were admittedly not the attraction… But I’ve witnessed first hand how being denied information about her own past affected her – and the transformation that followed when she was able to know her story. It took nothing away from her mom Betty – but it enhanced Jean’s sense of herself. Because of that, I understand why making this film about the detrimental impact of secrets in adoption is important to her. She’s only trying to provide for others what she was able to win for herself – the first chapter of her own life.
I encourage everyone, whether you're adopted or not, to be a part of the dialogue on adoption reform. May we all have such opportunities to support each other about things that have such profound meanings to our individual lives.
