disgusting

I’ve heard about a new horror movie called “Orphan” from a few different sources now. It is about a young girl who is adopted by a couple. Apparently bad things happen (it is a horror movie, afterall) and the parents think something is terribly wrong with the girl.

The trailer includes the statement, “It must be hard to love an adopted child as much as your own.” What a horrendous thing to include in a promo that will be seen by millions of people, including adopted children.

Here is an article about the movie. It seems like some of the protest from the adoption community has helped and the studio has agreed to remove the offensive line from the trailer.

    The magazine Adoptive Families sent out an email regarding this movie and the trailer. They are trying to get people to take action.

    It makes me sad, upset and angry when I see stuff like this.

    Definitely looks like a disturbing movie.
