October Baby

hey guys!

i'm totally new to this blogging thing, but Selma was nice enough to allow me to try things out here. also, i hope you'll ignore my complete lack of regard for capitalization. after 5 years of art school, those kinds of things flew completely out the window!

i wanted to steal her blog for a minute to let you guys know about an amazing movie that's out RIGHT NOW! it's called October Baby. it's an amazing story about a girl who is a freshman in college finding out that she is an abortion survivor. as in, her birth mother attempted to abort her and it didn't work! i didn't even know that COULD happen, but it actually happens more than one would think.

so, this movie is about her journey to find out who she is and who her birth family is. it's a beautiful story of self-discovery. it's about a family's struggle to deal with half-truths that have been told to accomadate this and the healing that happens when someone decides to forgive.

the acting is pretty good for an independent film and you'll see some familiar faces. the soundtrack is also pretty great! the message isn't in-your-face, nor is it super-conservative, or pushing an agenda. it's really just a story, about a girl, learning about who she is, and who she wants to be.

i'm including some links, one to the website for the movie and resources available: http://www.octoberbabymovie.net/

the producers of October Baby have assigned 10% of the profits of the movie to the Every Life is Beautiful Fund, which will distribute funds to frontline organizations helping women facing crisis pregnancies, life-affirming adoption agencies, and those caring for orphans. here is their website: http://www.everylifeisbeautiful.com/

this movie may not be in theaters past THIS THURSDAY so go see it THIS WEEK! you have 3 more days!!

thanks so much for letting me hang out with you! it's been fun! let me know if you're able to see the movie and what you think!
