David Scotton

David J. Scotton was placed for adoption after his birth mother left an Indiana abortion clinic in 1993. At the age of 19, David decided he wanted to meet his biological family he's never known to thank them for giving him life and choosing adoption. David is the subject of the short documentary, I Lived on Parker Avenue, showing the real-life journey to meet his birth parents, a story which inspired the movie, Lifemark, produced by Kirk Cameron and the Kendrick Brothers. David is also a practicing attorney in the New Orleans, La., area and active speaker sharing his family's story.

Melissa Coles was 18 years old and pregnant. Laying on the table awaiting the procedure that would terminate her pregnancy, a voice said ‘Get up! There’s still time.’ The touch of the doctor’s hand on her leg as he began preparation for the abortion brought Melissa back to reality. She jerked her feet out of the stirrups, sat up and said ‘Stop. I can’t do this!’ Nineteen years later, her son, who was placed for adoption wanted to meet her. The short documentary, "I Lived on Parker Avenue," about a mother’s agony in choosing what’s best, the joy of a couple starting a family, and young man’s search for where his life began has inspired the feature film, LIFEMARK, produced by the Kendrick Brothers and Kirk Cameron.
