Have you ever felt like you were unwanted or you were out of place? I know I have many times. I grew up in a family where love was not all that present on the maternal side. As a teenager, that left me asking a lot of questions about my life, my faith, my family, and where my place was in this world.
Today I watched October Baby and I immediately connected with that movie. The movie is one of finding your way in the world, learning to forgive those who have wronged you, and also learning to accept God’s forgiveness from mistakes in your past.
If you are someone who has suffered the loss of a child, have had an abortion, has adopted a child — you should see this movie. It is very moving. Make sure to grab a box of tissues to keep beside you as you watch.
During the movie, all I could think of are all the children who go through life asking the question — doesn’t anybody love me? I think that is why I am so adamant on making sure my own children know that they are loved beyond a shadow of a doubt.
