Movie Discussion Guide: The Odd Life of Timothy Green (FREE Download)
Jim and Cindy Green are a young couple who long to have a family of their own. Cindy works at the Crudstaff House and Pencil Museum. Jim works at the Stanleyville pencil factory, which is in the process of being closed. Jim and Cindy are unable to have children, even after pursuing every medical option. Saddened by their recent medical visit, the Greens make a list of everything they had wanted their child to be, hoping that this list will help them move on in their lives. They bury the list in a little box in their garden and go to bed.
On a dark and stormy night, something extraordinary happens. Wakened by the thunder of the storm, Jim and Cindy find a small, muddy boy running around their house. When he introduces himself as Timothy, the only boys’ name on their list of baby names, they realize that by some miracle, Timothy is the child they wanted but could never have. Stunned, Jim and Cindy can only accept Timothy into their home without question. The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a touching story about love, family, and the power of adoption.
