"there is enough to go around"
13 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Best new show of the year. If you missed this show then do yourself a favor and catch it on one of the sites like Amazon. The writing is great and the acting is wonderful. Highly recommend. This is a family show in every sense of the word. It is based on a loving family. In fact,love is the focus of every episode. We need more shows with that kind of message. This family just happens to be multi-cultural and have two moms. I love that The Fosters shows how very much like any other family that is. I love that it shows that in our homes and our hearts, "there is enough to go around". I hope that it encourages many people to open their homes to children who need loving families. I hope that many people see that a family doesn't have to look like a Norman Rockwell painting to be a REAL family. And, I hope there are many seasons of The Fosters to come.
