When people and organizations come together, magic can happen!

As a producer/director, I am thrilled to collaborate with our crowdfunding contributors, but there is also another level of connectivity that is worth celebrating. I believe so strongly in this documentary film and its potential to support and encourage families. Therefore, when other organizations who also value family like I do come on board, the results are magic.

Expecting Sunshine Documentary in the Edmonton Examiner.

Alexis Marie Chute Expecting Sunshine Edmonton Examiner 002

I am incredibly thankful to the Edmonton Examiner for covering Expecting Sunshine Documentary in their paper! However, there are a few points I wish to note.

  •  I don’t believe that we “move on” from the loss of a child. Those words bother me as a bereaved parent. I know I cannot control their use, but I want to note my feelings on those tiny but sometimes disconcerting words, especially as they are used in this article.
  • Every bereaved parent, and family, have their own unique story. The woman I interviewed in Sedona Arizona, Bonnie  Sedan, while also a bereaved mom, has struggled with infertility and made the choice not to have children. I invited Bonnie’s story into the film because she offers a perspective different from my own, but one I believe is incredibly powerful.
  • Covenant Health has been fabulous to work with, friendly and optimistic. Unfortunately, Alberta Health Services told me they are not willing to participate. Long story!
  • Finally, my art exhibit is called “The Quiet Rebuild,” not “Year of Distraction,” as listed in the article.

Here is the article for you to read. (Or read it on the Examiner site by clicking here.)
