October Baby is a movie about a young girl who finds out she is adopted. Not only that but she was birthed due to a botched abortion. Hannah, the main character, goes on a quest to find herself and to find out about her past. This journey has all the makings of a good road trip, tears, laughter, fun, drama. I am not gonna ruin it by telling all the details but suffice it to say that she also finds forgiveness and acceptance along the way.
As a post abortive mother, I thought that they told the story in a beautiful, non-condemning way. I have already healed from my abortion(check out my story here. It is split into 3 stories.) but I did find healing in the telling of her story. I am so glad that God doesn't stop working on me and He keeps refining and purifying me.
I encourage everyone to go and see this movie! It is amazing! You will enjoy it. It is a Christian movie but it is well directed, acted, and produced. No B movie here!
Check out Fandango for showtimes and locations!
Please show your love for this movie! It will change your life but take some tissues! I am going to see it again!
I just want to add that there were some weird coincidences in this movie. These had me crying out loud in the theater. Hannah's bday is October 7, 1991. She had a twin who died named Jonathon. I had my abortion in 1991. I have a daughter now who has the bday of October 7. My son in Heaven is name John. Weird, huh?
