We are so excited that Stuck an independent film about international adoption will be shown at the Heartland Film Festival in Indianapolis next month!  We're definitely going.  

Some of our AWAA adoptive friends were actually interviewed in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for this film.  Many other AWAA families saw the film crews working in and around Addis.  

What the film is about: 

Every day, communities and governments struggle to care for millions of orphans, trying to replace the most fundamental of human connections: a family. Colliding with cultural identity, human rights and international politics is the complex yet permanent solution for children: international adoption.

Traveling over four continents and into orphanages, living rooms and the halls of Congress, Stuck takes a clear eyed and sometimes painful look at the realities and conflicts that arise in the process of international adoption, and shares in the intense joy and fulfillment of families not made from blood, but created from love and commitment.

Indianapolis couple Nick and Lori Leroy are featured as they struggle to adopt their son Nate from Vietnam. In a case that garnered local press attention, Nick and Lori, with the assistance of Senator Richard Lugar, took their case to the highest levels of government.
