Includes Optional English subtitles.
Filmmakers Kathi and David Peters here build on their personal experience of adopting and raising a child from China, capturing the stories of other American families and quickly discovering that some aspects of their own experience are universal. The deeply emotional process involves having an agency identify a child as a possible adoptee, after which prospective parents fly to China to meet with the girl or boy, as well as the child's nannies. But the families the Peters' meet wound up doing so much more, traveling back to China post-adoption to journey to the "finding place," i.e., the location in which the child had been originally abandoned. Seeing those sometimes squalid locales can be quite jarring and upsetting, but the mothers and fathers also find that it provides a fuller context for helping to understand their child. One brave soul even went to the home of her son's birth mother, which turned out to be a deeply moving and healing experience for all. A heartfelt documentary about international adoption, this is recommended.
Find Me is a documentary on DVD following three Christian families who seek to adopt children from China. Both sides of the adoption journey are explored; not only the children's transition to a new home and a new country, but also the story of biological parents who could not afford to raise them, and the orphanage nannies or foster families who took care of them before their adoption. Deeply spiritual and inspirational, Find Me is ultimately about God's love and how adoption profoundly transforms lives. Highly recommended, especially for church library DVD collections.
