Kirk Cameron’s new movie LIFEMARK portrays the powerful story of adoption, and the father of six reveals why this movie was so near and dear to his heart.
“Think about this. My wife was one doctor appointment away from not existing,” Cameron said. “And our four children were also this close to not existing. And if my wife hadn’t been born, neither would our two natural-born children.”
His wife Chelsea Noble who he met while working on GROWING PAINS, was adopted herself, and that was a major factor in choosing to adopt four of their six children as he mentionedpreviously.
“Chelsea and I waited six years before we started having kids and we got talking about how it what that might look like. Chelsea and I started talking about the subject of adoption. And this came up pretty naturally because my wife Chelsea is an adopted child,” he explained. “And so this was something that was always a part of her life and something that she’s always wanted to do.”
Adoption was one of the issues that drew the actor to be one of the executive producers and star in LIFEMARK. The movie is based on the true story of Melissa Coles who chose adoption over abortion for her son David and her attempt to reunite with him as a teenager.
“My kids and my wife have so many heartstrings attached to the storyline of this film and the subject matter, because not only were they adopted, but two of my children have actually reached out and contacted their biological mothers and become familiar with the background of their own story,” he recently toldMovieguide ®.
Cameron goes on to say, “There’s so many moments where it’s obvious that God has woven their story together in such a beautiful way that I know this movie is going to impact them pretty greatly, as well as millions of people around the country who have been touched by the subject of abortion or adoption.”
