"STUCK is a new award-winning documentary film, produced by Both Ends Burning that uncovers the personal, real-life stories of children and parents navigating a roller coaster of bureaucracy on their journeys through the international adoption system, each filled with hope, elation – and sometimes heartbreak.
STUCK steps into the complex human
experience of adoption, exploring the challenges faced by birth
parents, prospective adoptive parents – and children.
The purpose of the film is to help the average person understand the
issues and create a movement that will ultimately put pressure on U.S.
officials to force a more supportive attitude toward International
Adoption. One objective while we are on the road is to gather over 1 million
petition signatures asking congress/global leaders/President Obama to
take specific actions to change the landscape of adoption. The petition
will be hand carried to members of Congress in the Step Forward for Orphans March in Washington, D.C., which will coincide, with the last day of the bus tour, tentatively scheduled for May 17."
Showings of the film STUCK will be March 2 in Raleigh at the Grand 16 and March 3 in Charlotte at Northlake Mall 14. We would love our Caroline's Promise folks to go to one of these dates, not only to view the film, but also to have the opportunity to sign the petition.
