Foster Care / Adoption in Movies
I know this has probably been done a hundred times before, but it should probably updated from time-to-time anyway.

What are some of the movies with adoption/foster themes you have seen? What are the movies you liked the best?

I came up with:

1. Meet the Robinsons
2. Blindside
3. The Odd Life of Timothy Green
4. Hotel for Dogs
5. Martian Child

In terms of watching with the children, I really like Martian Child. For myself, I love The Odd Life of Timothy Green. Timothy Green might be the only movie that really portrays the experience of foster parents.
I really like the movie Butter with Jennifer Garner.
Not a movie, but the show Dinosaur Train on PBS was on adoption today! Smile
@ Sunshine......Butter was great!
While not technically about a foster family, win win is an awesome movie about an older kid being "adopted." I am a huge paul giametti fan though so I may be biased!
Lost and found family, I really liked that one.
I loved The Odd life of Timothy Green!!!

Fav!!!!!^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
'The Christmas Bunny' was sweet. And I think the portrayal of foster/adoption on 'Parenthood' this season has been pretty realistic (ie it doesn't always go perfectly). I also liked 'Martian Child' and 'The lost and found family'. 'Gracie's Choice' was also good (more of kinship care than foster care though).
How did I forget about Despiccable Me and Annie? We watch those all the time! I'm going to have to check out Lost and Found Family. I never even heard of it, but the trailer looks intriguing.

I don't know how but we have three different versions of Annie....
Surprised nobody mentioned Loosing Isaiah. There was also a new one on Lifetime with Kerry Washington that was good, but I only caught the last hr.
