National radio host, Willie Moore, Jr. debuts new film for Foster Care Awareness Month
(Black PR Wire) In observance of National Foster Care Awareness Month, nationally syndicated radio host and best selling author, Willie Moore, Jr. will debut his latest film project, The Missing Peace to raise awareness about equity in foster care support and adoption services for families. The film takes viewers behind-the-mic as Willie reveals the journey of his own adoption story capturing the emotional, first-ever meeting with his biological family in 2020. The Missing Peace premieres Sunday, May 16th for 24 hrs, on-demand via TheMissingPeaceMovie.com.
Out of the 423,997 children in foster care, only 26% are matched to adoptive families. The impact is even greater for Black and Hispanic youth totaling 44% of children in foster care. However, cost and access to information are among the most common barriers to adoption. To help close the gap, Willie Moore, Jr. developed the WilFlo Foundation in honor of his foster care parents and to provide scholarships relieving the financial burden for families pursuing adoption of children over 12 years of age.
“Being adopted has positively impacted my life in so many ways, and I aim to have even a small influence on helping children in need find a loving family,” says Willie Moore, Jr. “Reconnecting with my biological family after 41 years has filled me with such inexpressible joy that I can’t quite put into words, so I put it into a movie. Producing The Missing Peace was a labor of love that will always be a part of my inner-healing journey. This film is a story of humility, hope and reconciliation that can change the trajectory of families from all backgrounds, bringing people closer together.”
Proceeds from The Missing Peace will benefit the WilFlo Foundation’s mission and scholarships to encourage adoptive families.
