Earlier this season, POV featured three films about adoption — Wo Ai Ni (I Love You) Mommy by Stephanie Wang-Breal (Aug. 31); Off and Running by Nicole Opper (Sept. 7); and In the Matter of Cha Jung Hee by Deann Borshay Liem (Sept. 14) — and launched a national public awareness campaign to examine issues facing adoptees and families who choose to adopt. All three films, plus Liem Borshay's 2000 POV film, First Person Plural, are now available to watch online through the end of November 2010, National Adoption Month.
