Calcutta is My Mother | A Documentary

Last Fall I agreed to be the subject of a documentary in which my first return to Calcutta, India will be documented. My first return to the slum where my abandonment took place. My first glimpse into a culture that is sewn into the fiber of my being but to which I have no real connection. After 35 years, this will be my first time traveling back to where my life began.

Among other experiences, I will visit the site of the orphanage where I spent my first 3 months, I will spend a few nights with an Indian family familiarizing myself with their customs and I will soak up all Calcutta has to offer me so as to know her more intimately.

With the full support of my family, I’m able to embark on this journey and I’m really thankful to have them all on board! I hope to have you on board, as well…

You can view the trailer and donate to our Kickstarter campaign here!

I hope you choose to be a part of me sharing my story so as to open the door for others to share, as well.


My crew and I would be so grateful to have you as a part of our team in helping this project come to fruition. Please share our link on your social media platforms and help spread the word!

  1. Love this! I happened across your blog as I began my own. My husband and I adopted our sons via foster care. Their biological family all live within 45 minutes of us, but there is no contact until our oldest turns 18. In the 3 years we have had them, the boys have lost a grandfather and an uncle, so I am praying they will still have the option to contact their biological mom when the time comes!
