Director Statement

I hope you enjoy my film which explores what it means and feels to be an adoptee. I am just one voice of many and I hope to those out there who are like me, they perhaps feel seen in any way, shape, or form with this short and to those who are not like me, they still feel moved to though or conversation about this topic.
