Instant Family is 2018 movie about a couple who adopts children through the foster system in California. This type of adoption is often referred to as “fost-adopt”.
Angie from This Gathered Nest featured the show on her channel a few weeks ago. She and her family are huge adoption advocates and I am super excited to share this film.
I saw it last night and it is sweet, funny and so so true. Although not a Christmas film, it is in theatres right now and I highly recommend you see it. It exemplifies many themes behind the true meaning of Christmas and will fill you with all the feels.
I really hope that this film inspires others to become involved in the foster care system. There are many more children than parents in the system, but there are lots of other ways you can also become connected. One example is working with local organizations to fund extracurricular activities, joining Big Brothers and Big Sisters, sponsoring a foster family for Christmas … the list is endless.
I really enjoyed this movie and it is one I would watch again without hesitation.
The trailer is available here.
