The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is proud of our partnership with Paramount Pictures and their newest family comedy Instant Family.

This movie, starring Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne and Octavia Spencer shines a light on what foster care adoption looks like in real life. Director Sean Anders wrote about his personal journey through foster care adoption. The film highlights the highs and lows, the moments that make you laugh and the moments that make you cry.

It’s out in theaters November 16 and we are so thankful to Sean and Paramount for putting foster care adoption in the spotlight.

There are more than 117,000 children in the United States waiting to be adopted from foster care. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption works every day to try and find them their forever families.

If you believe every child deserves a family, consider supporting our mission here.
