  • According to the Children's Rights Foundation, nearly 2 million children around the world suffer abuse at home each year. The situation usually explodes when the child is 8 to 10 years old. About 80 percent of these children have serious psychological problems, and 15 percent develop very serious mental disorders.

  • When Nathanael Matanick produced this video, he took as his example the real story of Zoe, an 8-year-old girl that was taken from her family and after many foster families, was adopted with her little brother, also shown in the video.

  • This video is meant to raise awareness, and give hope to foster families and adoptive parents and children.
