Bustle - 04-20


This Saturday, Lifetime will debut its latest film I Am Somebody's Child, which documents the story of a foster child’s arduous life and the one person who saw her true value. I Am Somebody’s Child is based on a true story and dramatizes the life of author Regina Louise who, according to Chicago Tribune, ended up in the foster care system after being abandoned and abused by everyone in her life. She later met Jeanne Kerr, an employee at a children’s shelter, and they formed a mother-daughter relationship. Sadly, Jeanne’s attempt to adopt Regina was denied and the pair remained separated for many years.
