For the Love of a Child is a 2006 drama film directed by Douglas Barr. The movie follows the true story of two American women, Kris Jensen (played by Peri Gilpin) and Sarah Jordan (played by Teri Polo), who travel to Romania to aid in the recovery and adoption of neglected Romanian orphans. Kris and Sarah, both experienced in the field of child welfare, are horrified by the conditions they find in the state-run orphanages in Romania. The children are malnourished, mistreated and have nowhere to go.

Upon their return to the United States, Kris and Sarah are inspired to take action. They start a non-profit organization called the Miracle of Love Foundation, with the aim of offering help and support to Romanian orphans. The foundation works to bring the children to the US, where they can be adopted and given a better life.

As they work together to help these children, Kris and Sarah find themselves facing many challenges, including resistance from the Romanian government and opposition from those who see their efforts as interfering with the established adoption process. However, they are determined to continue with their mission, and the film follows their struggles and triumphs as they work to make a difference in the lives of these children.

Throughout the movie, we see the personal and emotional toll that their work takes on both women. Kris is a divorced mother who is struggling to balance her work with her family life, while Sarah is a single woman who must confront her own past traumas as she dedicates herself to helping others.

Despite the difficulties they face, the women's compassion and commitment to their cause is unwavering. They work tirelessly to provide better lives for these children, and through their efforts, families in the US are able to adopt many of them.

For the Love of a Child is a touching and poignant movie that highlights the importance of compassion and determination in the face of adversity. The performances by the cast members are strong, and the story is both moving and inspiring. Ultimately, the movie serves as a reminder that even a small group of dedicated individuals can make a difference in the world.
