Hi Scott and Kelli,
I was listening to the show yesterday and you brought up the new movie, Dandilion Dust,(love the title)and I tried to call in after I heard the man talk about adoption through foster care.  I am a single woman, just turned 41, and I just adopted my first child in February through the foster system, working on my second, and hope to have 2more if it is in God's plan.  I have wanted to adopt since I was a little girl, 10 kids to be exact, but I never pursued it because I thought I had to be married, and I thought it was really expensive, and you had to own your own home.  I want to encourage other people like me and maybe reach someone who is younger that thinks the same way.  I used to feel like my dreams were to be put on hold because God hadn't put a husband in my life. So in the meantime I grew my passion of working with children through other means like inner city work, and preschool teaching.  All of which gave me a ton of experience for my current life. I wish I would have checked into it sooner and got the facts.  If I would have known you could adopt as a single person, I would have done so long ago.  Not only do I get to pursue my dream of having a large family even as a single woman, I have found that God is faithful to help with the finances.  And when you adopt a child through the foster care there are very minimal fees and lots of help for those minimal things.  It really only cost me time, energy and my heart.  And the payback is enormous!  There are children in other coutries and right here in our own towns that need a forever family.  And that family comes in many different forms!  security, love,commitment, boundries, and guidence are all these children are looking for.  Some people think I am crazy to be a single mom, others think it is corageous, I think it is a blessing and an honor to be given the chance to care for God's children and am truely grateful!

Wow, I can't wait until this comes to a theater around here in the Cleveland Ohio area. This is so heart warming and the book was great because Karen Kingsbury is such a wonderful christian person and her books are written from the heart. Can't wait to see this wonderful picture. Thanks Karen and all of the people who is making this possible. God bless you all.

I can not wait until this movie comes out. As a christian teenager in high school I think that watching this movie will help me see the foster care system and the kids in a different light. and I think that this movie would help me understand them more and by the grace of God I would be able to minister to them because I understand how they feel and the different struggles they can go through.

I saw the little preview and I relate to it very well.  My parents adopted four special needs children that came to them as foster children as babies.  All of them were born crack-cocaine addicted and each of them had health problems as a result of being born addicted to drugs.
My dad also adopted me.  He and mom started dating when I was three, they married when I was five, and he adopted me when I was eight.  He is my dad, and the only man that I consider to be dad.  I met my biological father when I was 14, but he is not a part of my life, and he was never my dad anyway.  
I think all of the step-fathers who adopt their stepchildren and all of the foster/adoptive parents that have adopted because every child deserves and needs to be loved.

I just cannot wait for this movie and to take my boyfriend Joe and his daughters. He adopted his brothers daughters when they were born 10 and 11 years ago. Their birth parents were strung out on all kinds of drugs and in no shape to take care of them. The oldest is autistic and the youngest does have some residual effects too. He truly shows them the love of God daily but being their "Real Dad".
Thank you for sharing this.

This film looks to be very encouraging, my wife and I have pondered over adoption for quite some time. We had twins still born in 2004 and gave since been unsuccessful and considered adoption but simply cannot afford it. We will be going to see this film. Each Christian film that is released we go and see to give that support, but this one hits home and thus holds a special place for us. Thank you KLOVE for letting me know about this movie and providing the preview.

We had no idea of this movie until we heard about it on K-Love!  We have not been able to have our own children and have recently been talking about adoption.  We are very anxious to watch this movie.  We love children and by the Grace of God hopefully something will workout someday.

I have been looking forward to this movie for quite some time now, ever since Karen Kingsbury, the author of the book, announced it was being made. The book was awesome (as all her books are!) so I'm sure the movie will be outstanding. I only hope it comes to the Virgin Islands! If not, guess I'll be waiting to rent it.

Jody, if you had started adopted years ago, you wouldn't be getting the same children you are getting now.These are the ones God had planned for you.

From the Preview, I really would want to watch this movie but not in the theaters.
No way.
It has the look and feel of a "tear jerk-er" and I'll be crying right along with the actors!
Can't wait for it to be out on cable or dvd.

I heard this clip on KLOVE tonight and it choked me up (which is not easy to do).  We are in the process of adopting our 3rd child and my heart can so relate to this scene and situation.  Adoption has been one of the greatest gifts of my life!

To Jody: Thank you for your words of inspiration. My wife, son and myself have spoken of adoption at different times. I would love to help out those in need, especially God's littlest ones. My wife and son has mentioned it before also. We will have another discussion now knowing your story and that it is possible to help without it being a financial burden. Thank you again for sharing your story. God bless!

I like the preview. It was heart felt. I know people who are foster parents and still get to see the kids after they are adopted. Makes me want to adopt a child today. It made me start to cry. Must see movie.

My husband and I had 2 biological children. Two years ago, we added 2 more children to our family through adoption.  We have been so blessed by our decision!  I want to encourage anyone who has ever given pause to the concept, to follow your nudges.  You will be forever enriched by it, and so will the children who desperately need stability in their lives.

I just watched the full preview on the other page and I was very disappointed to see what it was about. Yes, there is a huge need for people to adopt. WE are waiting to adopt ourselves.. but the story depicts that birth parents can come and claim "their" child whenever they want to and that it's ok to break the law to get them back?????!!!! This seems to perpetuate people's fear about adoption, therefore less couples want to try to adopt out of this fear, and less birth-mothers will place their children.
I hope that I am wrong.

Thank you so much for supporting Like Dandelion Dust. We need movies like this that are clean and inspirational. Hopefully people will go on line and find their cities and join the demand it group. The Kansas City one has several thousand likes but not enough Demands!

I am part of the grass roots effort to get the film released nationwide. Being an indie film, the advertising funds for the movie aren't there. You should go to www.likedandeliondust.com and click on the DEMAND IT tab. Find your city on the map and join the facebook group for that city. If a FB group can get 1,000 fans, it's probable the movie will open in that city.  Or, contact your local theaters (and have your friends do so) and tell the Manager that you want to have them show it. Otherwise, you may have to wait for DVD.

I agree Megan.  That is what I felt was happening when I saw the preview.  And for the record, once the birth parents have relinquished their rights, or they have been terminated by the courts, they don't get to come back and take their child from you.  That was why I never wanted to adopt an infant because of a show I saw a long time ago that the birth mother changed her mind after a few months and wanted the baby back and fought to get her back for 2 years and won. It was heart breaking.  I only wanted to adopt older children because there is less chance of the parents trying to get them back.  If this is what the movie promotes, then I agree that it shouldn't be shown.  It is a scary and exciting time during the adoption process, and we don't need any more stress added to this transition in our lives.  It will make an impact on people wanting to adopt and can do it in a negative way.

Jody, the film doesn't promote taking back a child after giving it up.  It just shows the reality that it is possible and, unfortunately, happens sometimes.  It shouldn't scare anyone away from adopting, and that is not the intent at all.  I don't want to give anything away so I won't say more, but the underlying theme of the movie is unconditional love, grace and forgiveness.  I certainly hope that the short clip doesn't keep you away from seeing the film because it is very good and will touch your heart.

As an adoptive parent, I also agree with Megan & Jody! I wanted to see the movie SOOO bad after hearing about it on K-Love, but after watching the preview I am not sure that I now want to Frown I am so afraid if that is the plot of the story that it will frighten and not inspire people to adopt. I pray that the story line is much different than depicted on the preview, because adoption is such a beautiful blessing and I pray others can experience the joy my husband and I have experienced through the miracle of adoption! We are blessed with a beautiful & perfect daughter & son and I could never thank God enough for allowing us to be their parents! I pray this movie does not paint an inaccurate and scary portrait of adoption!

I haven't seen this movie, but we need to know all the story. There is indeed a need for Adoptive Parents, just as much as there is a need for Qualified Foster Care Givers.

From the bit, I have heard from this conversation, I am guessing that this story may be presenting a little of that.

Please believe me, it is actually far worse to not know what may happen. Many issues have evolved, out of proportion, when All hasn't been known and/or shared.

May you Find Strength in Your Higher Power

Megan, Jody and blessedmomof2,

I understand your concerns about scaring people away from adoption, but having seen it myself, I can tell you that is not the purpose or message of the film.

In fact, the heart of the filmmakers is just the opposite! Check out this real life story of adoption and rescue:

Karen Kingsbury is a very talented Christian author. I have everyone of her books. Like Dandelion Dust is an amazing story. I wish all of Karen's books could be turned into movies. Don't just watch the movie, pick up one of her books, you won't be able to put them down. The Baxter Series is my favorite.
