Boycott "Orphan"

I am posting to inform those reading this to boycott a film coming out called "Orphan". I'm sure not many of you would probably see the movie anyways, but spread the word and tell people not to support this film. It carries an intense negative message regarding adoption- especially the adoption of older children. Having worked with abused and negelcted children that are currently available for adoption, this movie breaks my heart. Adoptions allow for beautiful opportunities for children and families to experience the fullness of life that Christ has given us on this earth. I have met and loved many beautiful children in the foster care system that have been through more than most adults have experienced in 50 years, and these children are NOT damaged goods,thank you very much Warner Brothers. Sorry, I am getting worked up, I'll shut up now. You can read about the film below...

Info from Forever Families:
There is a horror film being released on July 24, called Orphan, about a family who adopts an older girl who "is not what she appears to be." The film is currently being promoted, and the trailer is available at The adoption message is extremely negative, and plays into the stereotypes of adopted children, particularly older children, as damaged.

Though we have not been able to preview the entire movie, the trailer leads us to believe the movie will send a horrific message about adoption. The adoption community is protesting the release of the film. We urge you to contact the makers of the film, as well as your local movie theater chains, with your concerns. Contact information:

The above blog is by a pastor's wife who has adopted 3 children. There's a video on her most recent post- its long- but really good about life from a foster child. After reading your blog today, i thought you might like to see it.
