"The Kid With A Bike" movie
This is an excellent French film from 2012 about an adoption that is fairly unconventional.

"Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival and a Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, the deeply moving new film by the Dardenne brothers delves into the emotional life of troubled 11-year-old Cyril (Thomas Doret). When his father (Jrmie Renier) abandons him, Cyril obsessively searches for his bicycle - placing his last bit of hope in this symbol of their relationship. Almost by accident, he becomes the ward of a kind hairdresser (C驩cile de France), who seems surprised to find herself so determined to help him. With his wild, unpredictable behavior and his disastrous search for father figures, Cyril risks losing her - though she refuses to give up without a fight." -- (C) IFC

I was very moved by this story. The boy exhibits many of the not-so-adorable behavioral issues of an abandoned child, and even though the French "foster" rules appeared ridiculously lax, the emotions and bonds portrayed in this film are very realistic and touching. :popcorn:
Very trouching and remind me of my of the young men who have entered my home in last year and half. I usally do not like to read movies with subtitles LOL But was glad I found it on netflix
