23 July 2019 | by lmmcelweeSee all my reviews

I loved this film. It is heartwarming, funny and addresses themes of foster care and adoption. Sam and Elvis shows us the real meaning of family and it's leading women are strong, resilient and loving characters. A great movie to watch with the whole family!
