Adoption in the Movies

While doing some research the other night I ended up typing in adoption under the movie category on Amazon.

Growing up when adoption wasn't such a large part of my life, I guess I did not pay much attention to all of the movies that I watched & dealt with adoption in some way.

What about Stuart Little?! What a good (cute) example of a, would you call it transracial adoption?! Our how about Juno, dealing with more of a birthmother's point of view.

When you stop & think about it, there are a lot of movies that deal with adoption. Just to name a few more: The Blind Side, Elf, Superman, & How to Deal.

What is your favorite movie dealing with adoption?


  1. I know the show isn't completely about adoption, but I love's one of my favorite movies. I love it because through adoption she finally gets the life she deserves.

  2. I was going to say Matilda, too.

    And also, "Ellen Foster." It was a Hallmark movie so not many have heard about it. I stupidly watched it during my tww after my IVF and bawled my eyes out practically the whole time. Really good movie, though.

  3. There are loads when you think about it. I think my favourite series of films are Star Wars and Harry Potter :)
