Event description
Director May May Tchao is hosting two virtual panel discussion events — pre and post American ReFramed Broadcast virtual discussions.

About this event

The Currys build a family of twelve children, five of whom are adopted and have special needs. HAYDEN & HER FAMILY is an inspiring adoption story that explores the power of transformation through acts of generosity and sacrifice when different lives and love intersect, and it gives voice to the adoptive parents who are rarely represented

We have two exciting virtual panel discussion events — pre and post American ReFramed Broadcast discussions. These sessions are 30-40 mins to help viewers take a deep dive into the reality of adoption from the parents’ perspective.

Monday Nov. 22 (7 pm CST) - Red Carpet Pre-Premiere Discussion

We will share 2 outtake clips in this segment on the theme of “Why the Currys adopt so many children?” The panelists include Elizabeth and Jud Curry, director May Tchao, New Yorker writer Larissa MacFarquhar and moderator Sydney Bauer.

In this session, we will watch a short clip of an interview with the Currys on how and why they've made the decision to adopting more children, and with special needs. Then we will follow a discussion with New Yorker writer Larissa MacFarquhar on her take on why some people are motivated to be ambitious do-gooders. We invite viewers to pre-submit questions or on chat as the panelists engage with the viewers to elevate our excitement and anticipation for tomorrow's broadcast.

Monday Nov. 29, (7 pm CST) - Exclusive Post-Premiere Discussion

Our second exclusive panel discussion event will focus on the theme of parenting, especially for special needs children. The Currys will share their parenting philosophy and the latest news on their children who have grow a lot since the film!

Adoption specialist Jane Turner, from the Adoption Center of Illinois, will give an overview and insight on the latest international adoption trends especially after Covid.

Zoom link will be emailed to registrants the day of the event!

Event registration is free, but space is limited. You can register for both or either one of the events. Do it soon!
