Loveworthy is a feature documentary unpacking a viral video of a little girl finding out she’s going to be adopted by her foster family. The short home movie racked up more than 50 million views, and the Zezulka’s were invited onto The Ellen Show and gifted a big check and a new car from Mark Wahlberg. If you watch the clip closely, most of its’ power exists in just a few seconds, where little Ivy realizes there may be an end in sight from all the trial and tribulations her and her siblings have gone through over the years.
We’ll unpack what makes that moment so special, while following a few other families who are in various stages of their foster care and adoption journeys. Then we want to understand a discrepancy that is causing an epidemic: Why do stories like this touch our hearts so deeply, yet so few Christians are willing to do anything about it? Why do we rightly fight so hard to preserve God’s precious unborn children, but only 5% of us are willing to take care of the ones who are already here and struggling?
