“Adopt Me, Michael Jordan”

A new documentary about a 12-year old Ethiopian girl adopted to the U.S.

Adopt Me, Michael Jordan follows Weynshet, a twelve-year
old girl who travels from an Ethopian orphanage to an adoptive
family in the US. In this work-in-progress documentary,
the award-winning producing team of Melanie Judd
and Susan Motamed focus on the experiences of a child,
illuminating the complications of international adoption
and raising the question of what it means to lose everything
you know in order to get what you need.

  1. Oh Hi! My name is Stacy, I have just begun the A-mom journey, and have struggled with the A-daughter journey for 31 years!
    I’m glad to meet you and am thrilled I came upon your blog!

  2. I went to the screening of this event on Friday night and it will be a very thought-provoking documentary once it is finished. Right now it’s at a “rough-cut” stage. They wanted feedback from the audience. The filmmakers were very thoughtful (although only one spoke) and the two panelists were a wonderful addition to the screening, but I wish they were given more time to speak and more topics to speak upon.
