  • Unlocking the Heart of Adoption redux

    Dear Friend,

    Mateo, CA, Thursday, May 5th at 10pm, on WXXI TV12, Rochester, NY, Friday,
    May 6th at 7pm, on WLAE TV32, New Orleans, Saturday, May 7th at 10pm, and on

    reaches all of western Pennsylvania, into New Jersey and Wilmington,

    This 56 minute documentary chronicles diverse first person stories of
    adoptees, birthparents and adoptive parents in same race and transracial
    adoptions. Their stories follow the path of relinquishment, adoption,
    growing up adopted, raising an adopted child, years of silence and shame,
    and the search for answers to unasked questions. They stirringly reveal,
    with honesty and some times humor, the enormous complexity in the lives of
    normal people when impacted by adoption. In the process, they explain what
    'identity' 'loss' and 'knowing the truth' mean to them. Many candid
    snapshots enrich each story. Transracial adoptions, issues of closed
    records, historical perspective and the personal story of the filmmaker -
    who was raped at age 20 and unwillingly relinquished her child make this
    film the most comprehensive to date. As the filmmaker tells her story, she
    creates a sculpture of a mother holding her baby in a hospital bed.
    "Unlocking the Heart of Adoption" gives the viewer a powerful way to
    understand the lifelong process of adoption. For more information visit -

    includes shipping & handling.

    Here is what public television viewers are saying:

    "I am an adoptee who happened to stumble across an airing of your film on
    public television. Thank you for tackling such an emotional and
    commercially unviable topic. You really captured the essence of the issue
    from all perspectives. I hope the film receives more air time so that all
    members of the adoption triad and the public at large can come to understand
    the complexity of the adoption issue.

    "Thank you for playing this wonderful program on adoption. I am an adoptee
    and was thrilled to see PBS show a program on adoption that was so REAL and

    "The program on adoption which was on Sunday afternoon was amazing. Sad at
    times to think adopted children struggle with identity so much, but it's an
    honest approach to the realities of adoption (good and bad) and I enjoyed
    this documentary immensely."
