The Miracle Baby



Artist Statement

The Miracle Baby explores the demons of mental illness and drug addiction between Mother and Son.

How it fits into contest

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” This documentary is exactly about that. We are facing battles that our eyes can not see (addiction, demons depression & mental health issues) finding strength in the power of Jesus and using the armor of God as our protection and covering.
