"Penny: Portrait of a Birth Mom"
Rebekah Cook, one of our first screen children, told us about this touching short film she and our friend Leona Worcester were a part of when Tracy Robinson was gearing up for her important documentary The Matter of Life.
I was on the road when Intercessors for America ran this, so I'm posting this a bit late...
Lord, please use this short film to inspire many to choose adoption, so that Your masterpieces might grow into all You create and call them to do.We’ve featured Tracy Robinson and her documentary The Matter of Lifeseveral times, so for the one-year anniversary of the abolition of Roe v. Wade and Life Month, we’re delighted to share a short film she created in preparation for the feature. Watch “Penny: Portrait of a Birth Mom” below. It has an introduction by Robinson, followed by thoughts from Leona Worcester, who plays the birth mother, and Rebekah Cook, who plays the adoptive mother.
Be sure to watch to the end of the credits to catch Leona (birth mom) and Rebekah (adoptive mom) share their thoughts on playing those roles.
I helped create this short film focused on healing for a woman who realizes she's killed her child.
