When I first saw this movie, I rented it on YouTube. Then I bought it because I just loved the movie that much I had to have the movie. I am a person who believes that to make a family, you don't need to be biologically related. I'm a strong supporter of adoption since there a re many children out there who need parents or a guarding to love them. I personally would like to adopt one day as well if my partner and I cannot have children. Therefore, this movie is amazing and I loved the story. It shows how being foster parents can't be easy, as both foster parents and foster children have to get used to new environments. Yet, it can be a blessing because this people become family once trust has been earned. This movie is lovely, i highly recommend it.
My family loves this movie. You know it shows how a real family is. No colorful feel good moments to make a hollywood movie like they usually are made. This tells a good true story of how a family should love and honor each other. This shows how children should have respect and love for their parents and hold them to a high esteem. What ever happened to the good ole days of how we were raised and how we should raise responsible and respectful children and not spoiled kids.
It's a good movie with a good soundtrack. I really enjoyed it. It was funny and it was sad. It was an all around good movie. I liked it a lot. I would definitely watch it again and I would definitely recommend it to a friend. I actually already have and they loved it too.
