I Lived on Parker Avenue

Presented by The Sheen Center, Human Life Review and the National Review Institute

Monday, November 4, 2019 @ 7:00PM

Tickets: $15

Adopted at birth and raised in Louisiana, David Scotton is on a journey to Indiana to meet the birth parents he’s never known. His tattooed birth mother, Melissa, and reserved birth father, Brian, anxiously wait for him, concerned David will reject them for decisions they made before he was born. I Lived on Parker Avenue is a short documentary about a mother’s agony in choosing what’s best, the joy of a couple starting a family, and a young man’s search for where his life began.

Screening will be followed by a conversation  about the importance of adoption and foster care with Benjamin Clapper, the film’s executive producer; Lisa Wheeler, Founder & President, Carmel Communications, Adoption & Foster Care Advocate and Sarah Zagorski, Adoption & Foster Care Advocate, Louisiana Right to Life. The discussion will be moderated by National Review Editor-at-Large Kathryn Jean Lopez.
