I Have Roots & Branches: Personal Reflections on
More about the film:. In this must-see film, a 2004 winner of a Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence (recognized world-wide) for quality family/children's entertainment, adoptees ranging in age from childhood to adulthood share their deepest thoughts and emotions on the adoption experience which has profoundly shaped their lives and those of their loved ones. Viewers will find out first hand how it feels to have been adopted and discover that all kids have common experiences growing up in their homes, surrounded by the families they know and love. Children will understand that if they were adopted, it is a lifelong journey; a celebration of the roots from which they come and the branches that mold them into who they are and where they will go. The roots & the branches.....the tree......it is their legacy- two different kinds of love. This joyous and uplifting film rings true to the celebration of their legacy.
