Fealty to abortion-on-demand may be the norm in Hollywood, but actress Kristin Chenoweth stands as a stark contrast with her new Hallmark Christmas film’s affirmation of adoption, which was inspired in part by her own life story.

A Christmas Love Story, which stars Chenoweth, premiered on the Hallmark Channel on December 7. The Daily Wire reports that the actress attended a question and answer session the day before, during which she offered some insight into a scene of an adopted character’s first meeting with his or her biological mother.

“That scene happened to me. I am adopted and I had this virtually same conversation with my birth mom,” Chenoweth explained. “I remember [my birth mom] saying to me, ‘Can you ever forgive me?’ And I was like, ‘There’s nothing to forgive. You gave me such a great life. I got the right parents.’ Anyway, that scene is very special to me because we developed it around exactly what happened in my life.”
