The popular television show, Glee (2009-2015), is our 3rd feature in OYFF's First/Birth Mother Point of View (POV) series. The program included 2 birth/first mother storylines and had a wide audience. Although the series is over, we felt it was important to comment on how birth/first mothers were represented in this piece of popular culture.
The popular television show, This Is Us, is our 2nd feature in OYFF’s First/Birth Mother Point of View (POV) series. The program includes a birth mother story line and has a wide audience, making it important to review how birth/first mothers are represented in this piece of popular culture.
The movie Lion caught our attention as the perfect vehicle to launch our new Birth/First Mother Point of View (POV) program. Not only has it been nominated for an Oscar, but the narrative centers on the true experience of an adoptee driven by a strong desire to reunite with his first/birth mother.
