Documentary Series Seeking Adoption Stories

Family Life Services has been contacted by a production company who is gathering information to produce a documentary about adoption.  It is my understanding that they are specifically looking for couples or individuals waiting for an adoption placement to follow through the time of placement and birth parents who are considering adoption for an unborn child.  If you or someone you know may be interested in such an opportunity, please submit your story directly to Kara at High Noon Entertainment. 


High Noon Entertainment is teaming up with a major cable network to produce a documentary series about the real life joy, laughter and heartache American families and mothers experience from every side of the adoption process.

If you’re in the middle of your own real-life adoption story, we want to hear from you! We’re looking for dynamic people from all walks of life who have a current, compelling story focused on the adoption process.

Whether you’re… the married couple who’ve tried for years to have a child and are now looking into alternate options…the woman who has decided to become a surrogate for a family member or friend … or the pregnant woman considering an open adoption… we want to hear YOUR story.

If you have a story you’d like to share or know someone who does, please send a one- or two- paragraph summary and a digital photo of the person or people whose story is being told to

For more information, please contact Kara at 310/943-5029 or email at

I noticed this and, frankly, it scared me stiff. If the effect of the observer can be documented among atomic and sub-atomic particles, what effect will thousands or millions of viewers have on birth parents making an adoption plan? What sort of new pressures will be added to an already impossible situation when producers, cameras, and money get involved? I have a very hard time believing this is going to be an ethically produced, non-impact, "leave-no-trace" kind of documentary. Won't an average birthmother feel pressure to follow through with the adoption plan even more because of the added people counting on that drama happening? Is it even possible for her to feel she made the choice for herself and her child in that circumstance? Beyond that the moments it seems they're trying to capture, immediately surrounding the first meeting, birth, and relinquishing of the child, don't belong to anyone who isn't part of the adoption. I cannot think of anything more intimate and private than those moments.

On this one you can call me Timothy. Timothy Leary.
