Meet Faith, a 13-year-old girl who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). This powerful, and at times very distressing, film follows Faith as she attempts to heal from the trauma inflicted by her birth-mother’s lifestyle and begins to develop trust for her new adoptive parents. But with one as emotionally bruised as Faith, it can be a seemingly impossible task for new parents to gain her love and trust, and their struggle as a new family begins to take its’ toll on all.

As a family, we felt misunderstood, disconnected. We were going through the fight of our lives and people just could not understand or relate to us or our child. Faith had done all of this important, really hard work, we all had, and our friends and family were trying to figure out why we couldn’t make it to the family reunion or the soccer game. We felt isolated. We had to do something to help people understand what families like ours go through. To honor the hard work Faith was doing, to help her, help all of us, stand proudly in our truth, be heard and continue to heal. – Tiffany Junker, Faith’s mom/one of MNIF’s directors
