I’m the mother of a chosen child and I love that she honored both mothers- one gave you life, one gave you a life. 💖
“A Christmas Love Story,” according to blog Just Jared, features a scene where “someone meets their birth mother for the very first time.”
Chenoweth, who was adopted herself, told viewers via Facebook Live that the scene really hit home for her.
“That scene happened to me,” the actress said. “I am adopted and I had this virtually same conversation with my birth mom.”
“I remember [my birth mom] saying to me, ‘Can you ever forgive me?’ And I was like, ‘There’s nothing to forgive. You gave me such a great life.’ I got the right parents,’” she recalled.
“Anyway, that scene is very special to me because we developed it around exactly what happened in my life,” she said.
Chenoweth detailed how she feels blessed for both her biological mother and the woman who raised her. “One gave me life,” she said, “and one gave me a life.”
On social media, Chenoweth reaffirmed her support of the pro-life message when she responded to Mallory Quigley, who serves as Vice President of Communications at pro-life advocacy group Susan B. Anthony List. More
I have to love Kristin Chenoweth on principle because she has her roots here in Oklahoma and she is still a true Okie at heart.
She does a workshop every year for aspiring theatre kids and she’s just amazing how she gives back to her community. I did not know she was adopted and was pro-life. I now love her even more!Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
