This MFTV movie is based on a true story of Beth (Cat) and her brother
John (Eric), whose mother died when Beth was one year old. They were
adopted by a religious couple when Beth was 19 months old and John was
an infant. The story of the abuse and neglect suffered at the hands of
her birth father after the mother died and before they were adopted is
mostly true, but the story was produced for television so keep that in
For those interested, read the true story of Beth's experience in the
book entitled "Dandelion on My Pillow, Butcher Knife Beneath It" by
Nancy Thomas. Beth herself is quoted in the book and helps to tell her
own true story. It is not solely a book about Beth, but contains other
even more fascinating stories of real children who lived on Nancy's
therapeutic ranch in Colorado.
These kids killed and/or tortured animals, murdered someone in their
own family, and one was even a serial rapist.
Having read the book, I found and just re-viewed for the first time
since it was aired on HBO a video of the special, "Child of Rage: A
Story of Abuse" done by Ken Magid. The film, although brilliant, was
misleading, according to Nancy and Beth. By the time filming took
place, Beth had lived with Nancy for some time and had substantially
healed from "baby Beth's" ordeal and was well on her way to recovery.
Her interview was a testament to the progress she had already made, and
she was simply reciting factually the past events when Dr. Magid
explored the incidents with her. Her behavior by then had permanently
improved and she was neither violent in any way nor displayed any kind
of behavioral problem.
Nancy and her husband were under the impression that they would keep
Beth as their own, but the religious adoptive parents had other plans
for Beth. Under the guise of a visit to their home on the east coast,
the adoptive couple instead put Beth with an Aunt for a while and then
turned Beth over to a program created especially for Beth and others
like her when the facility was completed. Both Nancy's family and Beth
were devastated. Later, the adoptive parents legally abandoned her
altogether; however, the setback didn't revert Beth to violence and, in
fact, the facility said they had never witnessed any kind of malevolent
behavior out of Beth since she was put there.
By the time Nancy and her husband found out where Beth was, they
immediately discovered that Beth had been abandoned and rapidly moved
to adopt her.
At the writing of Nancy's book, Beth was a college student and said
that Beth is a beautiful, happy and completely recovered woman.
Thankfully we have people like Nancy out there.
