Description

Adopted at birth and raised in Louisiana, David Scotton is on a journey to Indiana to meet the birth parents he’s never known.

His tattooed birth mother, Melissa, and reserved birth father, Brian, anxiously wait for him, concerned David will reject them for decisions they made before he was born.

I Lived on Parker Avenue is a short documentary about a mother’s agony in choosing what’s best, the joy of a couple starting a family, and a young man’s search for where his life began.

Editorial Reviews

College student David Scotton, a handsome, outdoorsy fellow raised by adoptive parents Jimmy and Susan Scotton in Louisiana, has always known that he is adopted, and knows the names of his birth parents. Now ready to meet them, David reaches out with the blessing of his extended Scotton family, and arrangements are made for a face-to-face encounter. What follows is a lovely, heartwarming series of events, made even sweeter by Jimmy and Susan’s demonstrative compassion shown to birth mother Melissa Coles and father Brian Nicholas, and by David’s bonus introductions to two little sisters. The joy is palpable, and even if I Lived On Parker Avenue carries a less-than-subtle, anti-abortion subtext (Melissa was about to abort David when she changed her mind and put him up for adoption), this short documentary is not a diatribe but rather a human story of reconciliation and the expansiveness of love. Recommended. Aud: P. (T. Keogh)
