This Saturday, the new movie Return to Zero premieres on the Lifetime channel. This is a movie that I have known was in the making for the last 2 years. It focuses on the true story of a couple that experiences the stillbirth of their first child. I have known from day 1 that this was a hugely important film to the community of parents whom have lost a child.
I have not seen the whole movie... nor do I know all of the details of the storyline or the producer's viewpoint on Heaven... But what I do know from watching the trailer,and from everything that I have heard, is that it seems to realistically depict the grief and sorrow of this couple as they walk the unbearable journey of the loss of their infant child.
My prayer is that this movie will help to break the silence that surrounds infant loss, that it will help families heal, and that it will open up the lines of communication and the eyes of those who support family or friends when they have received the devastating news that their baby has died while still in the womb.
If you can, please take the time to watch this important movie this coming Saturday, May 17th.
