Breaking Amish

We recorded “Breaking Amish”, a new “reality” show on TV.

This show is about some Amish and Mennonite (yes, there is a difference) young people who are struggling with their identity in their community.

If they leave the life they have known all of their lives, they will most likely be leaving their families forever.

Two of the young people are adopted.

One young Amish man, Jeremiah, is from Ohio.

One young Mennonite lady, Sabrina, is from Pennsylvania.  Her birth mother was Italian, and father was Puerto Rican.  She was teased quite a bit because she didn’t look like everyone else.

At first, I was concerned about the portrayal of adopted families.

As we continued to watch, some of these situations didn’t seem quite right.
