As an adoptive mom to two kids, I cherish two women who chose life for their babies. That's probably the biggest reason "October Baby" resonated with me. But all these messages spoke to my heart: Life is beautiful. Everyone has a story. Our actions affect other people. God has different ways of creating family. At its core, "October Baby" is a story of forgiveness and life.
The truth shall set us free indeed.
The movie was well down. The characters were strong. And the soundtrack is excellent. Yes, a few parts were rather predictable, but I found myself teary-eyed at the end anyway. "October Baby" offers hope that hearts and relationships can be healed.
And, honestly, I loved Hannah and Jason's friendship. Such innocent love on which to build a life. Watching them was reminiscent of the early days of Dawson and Joey's friendship and reminded me of the kind of man I want to love my daughter one day.
I'm glad I finally watched "October Baby." While Christmas shopping last year, I found the DVD for a price that made it a good stocking stuffer, so I gave it to my husband. Earlier this week we were flipping through Netflix choices, looking for something to watch. Not long after we pushed play, I turned to Greg and said, "I guess there is no reason for us to keep the DVD. Might as well give it away."
So that's what I'm doing. Giving it away.
