Adoption at the Movies
Friday, May 7th
The book “Adoption at the Movies” by Addison Cooper is a great resource for opening discussions about the sensitive topic of adoption in your family. The book includes a list of 63 films (listed by age appropriateness) and also gives a summary of the plot, the adoption connection, strong points, recommendations and questions for each movie. Families are encouraged to watch a movie together and then use the book to help guide a discussion about adoption in a fun and interactive way.
For this program, we have asked 6 families to volunteer to watch a movie from the list and discuss their movie with us at the program. We invite other attendees to choose a movie if they have time and share their experiences too. If you’d like the discussion notes that accompany your movie, please contact programs@
adoptivefamiliesofhouston.org or order a copy of the book for yourself HERE.
