From writer and director Mike Norris comes an inspiring story of endurance, hope, and forgiveness. After her father's tragic death, 18-year-old Maggie Sirron (Ali Faulkner) runs away from her adopted Christian home. Trying to fill a void in her life, Maggie discovers that her birth mother does not love or want her, and she soon finds herself living on the streets alone. With no place to go, Maggie turns to the Bible and realizes that God has a better plan for her life, but she'll need the help of others to return home to her adopted mother who never stopped praying for her return.
An entertaining and inspiring film, Maggie's Passage is the recipient of five Doves from The Dove Foundation and the Family-Approved Seal for ages 12 and over.

Here is a dramatic movie about one young girl's passage of forgiveness, realization of God's love and being special when adopted. We all endure hard times in our lives and we tend to forget that God is always there for us. Maggie has a great adopted family, but when her father dies she needs to search for her roots. But the answers she is looking for are not with her birth mother, which sends her into a world that Maggie cannot forget nor forgive.
This is a story that shows that we all need a passage in our lives sometimes and that we forget that God always loves us and is there for us, we just need to look and rely on him. There is also a message that adoptive children are special because they are chosen just as God chose all of us as his children with his love. This is a truly wonderful story of helping others, forgiveness and the love that God has for us
