Into Loving Hands
A Documentary by Victoria Kereszi (work in progress)
In the fall of 2012, Chris and Rebecca Williams were thrilled to be expecting a second child, but halfway through their pregnancy at a routine ultrasound, they discovered that prenatal testing indicated that something was terribly – fatally – wrong. The couple, staunchly pro-choice, was subsequently faced with momentous decisions as they grappled with the hand they’d been dealt while also trying to navigate both the medical community and society.
This film chronicles four years of the Williams’ journey, from their initial grief to the unexpected miracle of life, the midwife’s exam room to the pediatric OR at Boston Children’s Hospital, capturing the emotional challenges and triumphs of what it’s like to raise a child with Down Syndrome and multiple heart defects.
