We love the fact that Erik Estrada is starring in a new film entitled Finding Faith.
In 1986, the former CHiPs star became a father to a baby boy. How did he celebrate? "A lot of people throw an umbilical cord away when it falls off," he explained, "but it's something very sentimental to me—a piece of my wife and my child." And so he wore his son's umbilical cord in a windowed locket around his neck. Estrada also had the baby's first tooth set in a bracelet.
Wonder if he wears them in the film?
Even if he doesn't, the flick sounds The Garrett family leads a picture perfect life in their small town. They are financially secure, their two children excel academically, socially and spiritually and they spread a contagious kindness throughout their community. But when 14-year-old Faith Garrett is abducted, their strength is put to the test as they struggle to find their missing daughter.
Estrada stars in this ripped-from-the-headlines story inspired by a compilation of actual events that Sheriff Mike Brown has investigated through his Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Made to inform parents, educators and concerned citizens on how children are being targeted, this powerful, cautionary tale should be mandatory viewing for every family.
So good that it's been "approved" by The Dove Foundation who gush, "Need your faith increased? Watch this movie and it just might happen!"
