—Jennifer Modenessi, Contra Costa Times

“The soap-operatic quality of a real-life story juices up Symons’ documentary… to his film’s strength, he doesn’t edit out the painful realities.”
—Lindy T. Shepherd, Orlando Weekly

“Two embryos way up!! Another home run for Johnny Symons…strikingly beautiful…a wonderful contribution to the community.”
—Deborah Anna Luepnitz, Ph.D., Dept of Psychiatry,
