This week I begin filming my documentary called "Closer Than You Think"!! I cannot wait to start the whole process because it has been on my mind and I think the adoption community deserves a little more recognition and this is how I plan to give it to them.
The concept is a real life journey following me as I go through the process of trying to find my birthmother. This is something very personal to me but I felt you here at Adoption Voices deserved to be a part of the ride. Like many, I'm sure, my biggest fear in life is that my birth mother has forgotten me. I think about it every night wether I try to keep my mind off of it or not. Last year when I turned 19, my parents gave me a letter that my birthmother wrote to them when I was born and believe me when I say I was an emotional wreck after reading it. I'll never forget the very last line of the letter where she wrote "Tell him I love him". That line sticks with me, but I still have that "what if" in the back of my mind.
The reason I'm making this documentary is to share my journey with people like me and you who wish to find that missing piece and want questions answered and put to rest. I hope you'll join me for this journey I'm about to embark on. It's going to be an emotional roller coaster but it's something I want to do and feel that needs to be shared.
I'll keep everyone posted on how it goes and I'll be tweeting pics and giving short video update on youtube so stay tuned!
thanks for reading!
