Director Statement

The project LOTUS is a very important film in my life as it is a dedication to my mother and to all the mothers’ out there, to thank them for all their hard work, unconditional love and support. This film is a very personal film for me as I have a friend who had been adopted and i know the question she has always had somewhere in the back of her mind. Through this film, I desire to answer some of those unanswered questions and to make the audience believe that adoption is not a negative term. It is a positive and gracious deed.
