This site operates on the belief that there are many important conversations for families that have been touched by foster care and adoption, and that sometimes those conversations are hard to get started. People talk in stories, and some of the most easily accessible stories are those captured in film. Adoption at the Movies reviews current and classic movies, suggests how they may relate to adoption and foster care, points out strengths, weaknesses, and challenges about the films, and provides recommendations and discussion guides to help families decide which conversations to have, and which films to watch. It's the hope of Adoption at the Movies that this site will be a helpful tool for many families to engage into open, honest, and healthy communication about adoption issues. Interested in a movie, but want some insight on how it might impact your kids? Have a favorite film and want some ideas about how to use it to start a discussion about a tricky adoption issue? This is the place for you!
