Adoption at the Movies helps families know what to expect when they go to the movies. It’s also aimed at helping foster, adoptive, and pre-adoptive families start important conversations about adoption-related issues. Adoption issues are often highly emotional, and are also pretty often unique to adoption. Families often feel intimidated because the issues are so important and yet so unfamiliar. Movies are pretty easy to talk about though, and Adoption at the Movies is about using films as easy bridges into those important but hard-to-reach conversations.

Many of the reviews include questions for sparking discussion and exploration with your kids.
