  1. Hi, I just discovered your site, what a great idea! I am amazed when I see how you have reviewed the movies and pointed out the themes I can use with my son to start an open conversation about adoption, I never would have thought of half of these ideas! My son is 6 and I am always looking for age appropriate tools to start a discussion. Thank you!

      I'm glad you found the site, and I'm glad you commented! Thank you so much!

  2. Thanks so much for this! So many kids' books and movies portray loss of separation from family and I hate being blindsided by it.
    I'm also very much looking forward to your point-of-view on the upcoming "Annie" remake. Just the trailer had my husband and I in tears...

    1. Hi Suellen,

      I'm really grateful for your comment. People are touched by adoption in so many different ways, and for many the connection has been very painful. I hope that this site both generates discussion and helps folks avoid being blindsided by things that will remind them of past traumas. I am looking forward to reviewing Annie, although I'm not quite sure what to expect. The trailer concerned me at one or two points, when a character mentions that Annie's birthparents are looking for her. I really really really hope that the birthparents and the concept of reunification are portrayed positively and aren't vilified.

      I'm really glad you wrote.

      Addison
