An Adoptive Moms Thoughts on Instant Family

We received an advanced copy of Instant Family

As an adoptive Mom (and previous foster Mom), I am always curious about films that talk about the subject. Some movies gracefully approach the subject, and others, not so much. When I first watched Instant Family, I fell in love with the film. It tells a story about family, love, and togetherness, in a light-hearted way.

Instant Family Blu-Ray and DVD

Now, that my two adopted kids are teens, I watched the movie with them. Together, we laughed, we cried, and I feel like the film brought us closer together. They did an excellent job depicting how the courtroom setting is like with adoption, and how the judges just want to create families.

It is a must-see film for every family. The film is currently available for purchase nationwide on blu-ray and digital.

About Instant Family

Parents in Instant Family

When Pete (Mark Wahlberg) and Ellie (Rose Byrne) choose to start a family, they stumble headfirst into the world of foster care adoption. After they learn their perfect foster child comes with two other siblings, Pete and Ellie find themselves speeding from zero to three kids overnight and must hilariously learn the ropes of instant parenthood if they hope to become a real family. Inspired by a true story, INSTANT FAMILY also stars Isabela Moner, Margo Martindale, Julie Hagerty, and Octavia Spencer.
