In 2014, award-winning filmmaker Kevin Peeples approached the adoptive family about interviewing them upon their return home from adopting sweet little Christina. What began as an effort to create a 3-5 minute short film about the quick adoption quickly turned into a full length documentary. Busy lives and multiple projects left the 5 Day Adoption film as a 30 minute, personal project to share with friends and family.
In 2015, Mr. Peeples and the adoptive family both felt led to step into the Jordan together and bring Christina's story to the world. On March 26, a Kickstarter campaign was launched in faith to raise the needed funds to complete production and post-production. In less than 3 days, support poured in from around the nation and we sailed past our minimum goal quicker than we imagined. We were now getting close to reaching our 1st stretch goal of $5,000. Eight days into our campaign, we reached our first stretch goal with the help of 52 backers. And by the time the campaign was over on April 15th, 91 backers not only helped us reach our 2nd stretch goal of $7,500, but we were able to raise over $8,000. These funds will help cover production and travel costs, post-production costs, music licenses, and more. We're so thankful for our friends and backers willing to help us spread this story to the world.
