Any Day Baby - October Baby

I remember what it felt like when I thought my mother didn't want me. It's a root feeling. It honestly doesn't go away. But after meeting my mother as an adult and seeing the relationship we have now. I can know that she really does love me.  But the feeling remains. It's in the shadows of my heart.

Maybe it's because I still don't know my father. And maybe it's learning from my mother that he really didn't want me. He found out she was pregnant and just packed up and left her. Just ran away.

So that root feeling still remains, because no matter how old a child is, that child will always want their parents.

Watching October Baby really blew me away. I actually had thought it would be a movie about some young girl getting pregnant and then choosing or having to decide if they want to have an abortion or not. The story line is completely different and really knocked my socks off.

The movie touches on so many areas of life. Family, pain, forgiveness, abortion, healing and knowing that in truth, your past can propel you into growth and strength no matter how painful!

I am glad my mother loved me. I'm glad my sister helped her to find me in the end. But most of all, I'm glad that God intervened and made it a miracle. We can't speak of our finding each other without seeing the miracle he worked into it.

If you haven't watched this movie, then definitely get a DVD or download or visit your local library.

As the curtain rises, Hannah hesitantly steps onto the stage for her theatrical debut in college. Yet before she can utter her first lines, Hannah—unscripted—collapses in front of the stunned audience.
After countless medical tests, all signs point to one underlying factor: Hannah’s difficult birth. This revelation is nothing compared to what she then learns from her parents: she was actually adopted … after a failed abortion attempt.

Bewildered, angered, and confused, Hannah turns for support to Jason, her oldest friend. Encouraged by his adventurous spirit, Hannah joins his group of friends on a Spring Break road trip, embarking on a journey to discover her hidden past … and find hope for her unknown future.

In the midst of her incredible journey, Hannah finds that life can be so much more than what you have planned.

  8. I've thought about watching this, but abortion makes me so livid and horrified that I was afraid I'd get too upset watching it. I noticed it's on Netflix.

    1. It doesn't show the abortion attempt. But it will still make you emotional. I hope you do see it. It's more about forgiveness, adoption, love and being able to grow from pain.

  9. This sounds like a really touching movie. It is really sad that abortion is so common place in our society and I am sure that there are so many people that have to deal with issues like this. Thanks for the review.

  10. I've got both my parents in my life and still was kind of insecure my whole life, wondering if they really wanted me or I was just an accident, if they truly love me etc. Some insecurities can not be explained. I can only imagine how hard was for you but I'm glad you found a bit of peace now that you have such a great relationship with your mom.

      It is true that some things cannot be explained and the things that never go away.

      I would wish for no child to experience such too.

  12. I had never heard of this movie, but it sounds powerful. Sometimes mothers give up their babies because they love them and know it's the best they can do for the baby.
