Tonight there will be a movie on Lifetime.... many won't watch because of of the subject, and how hard it is to really process it. I will be watching... and it will be difficult. But to show my support for this film, and the reality of what it is speaking about, I will watch. I want to encourage all of you, no matter your situation to watch, or record to watch later. I can't speak of everything that will happen in the film, as I haven't seen it yet... but I can only hope that it will portray a piece of what us as Mother's who have lost children, go through.
Here is a note written by Kiley Krekorian Hanish (portrayed by Minnie Driver in the film Return to Zero.)
"Almost nine years ago, our son, Norbert, died before he was born. Because we live in a society that doesn’t know how to deal with death, people in our life didn’t know what to say to us – so they said nothing. Most people avoided talking about his death, and we thought we were going crazy. As a result, we went into a cave, and isolated ourselves from the world and each other.
Healing is like a flower blossom opening, and each petal will open up at the moment it’s ready. You can’t force healing, and it took us many years before we were ready to engage in the healing process on this level. The making of Return to Zero has given us permission to share our story. By connecting with others, we feel like our hearts are little fuller and we are not so alone.
Making this movie has been extremely healing because it's allowed us to share our story, not be ashamed of what happened, and connect with other people that have also been through it."
So please help us spread the word and watch Return To Zero at 7 pm CST tonight on Lifetime.
