Our family saw another movie today, "Noble" , the story of Christina Noble, her struggle in life and later when establishing The Christina Noble Children's Foundation in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. This is the second movie this year that focused on Orphans. The first was "Dropbox" featuring the work of Pastor Lee Jong-rak in Seoul, korea, who installed a "Drop-Box' outside his home to serve as "Safe-Haven" for unwanted infants. That movie presented by Jim Daly and his Focus on The Family was very touching as viewers couldn't help but to be moved by the "Love and Sense of Service" exhibited by Pastor Lee.
"Noble" was alittle different opening up in Ireland. Her family experienced the challenge of a drunkard father and mother that passed away while all the kids were still young. Her father couldn't take care of them and eventually the authorities took the kids and placed them in alternative living situations. Eventually Christina ended up with the Nuns in a Catholic home for Orphans, was pregnant at the age of 17 and watched as her infant child was taken away against her will for adoption.
The movie switched back-and-Forth from her younger days in Ireland and later in Vietnam as she worked to establish her facility in Ho Chi Minh City. Exhibiting the same love for children and tireless dedication as Pastor Lee, Christina's earlier life featured something different. In the midst of life's struggles, she continued to have glimpses of her future life in Vietnam through her dreams !! The movie closes featuring her Children's Foundation fully in operation with plenty of children. Nice movie with good acting and production quality. Sadly, it hasn't found it's way into many theaters. We travelled about an hour to view it in Danvers, MA. The movie trailer is embedded below for your review:
As an additional note....I was adopted at the age of 11 months and my sister at only 7. There is a great need to bring these children into our homes but what bothers me most is the high cost associated when attempting to do so. I realize there are legitimate expenses but the idea of "Purchasing Human Beings " is repugnant to me and I feel the process needs to be as "Free-As-Possible" even though tax dollars may be involved. I'm very much opposed to "The Welfare State" since it's primarily used to advance government power, but these children are helpless and need our help..
