Adoption Stories from Adopted the Movie - A Feature Film by Barb Lee

Director Barb Lee’s Vision Statement

A mother and daughter.A multiracial family.A father and daughter.

I’m fascinated with family and how its many concentric circles define who we are. Like most adopted people, I have as many meanings attached to the word family, as I have emotions and as a storyteller, I feel compelled to explore them all.

Delving deep into the unique complexities of adopted families is the heart beat of Adopted. These families open up their homes and get real. What they show us is intimate, difficult and truthful. What’s happening in these families is subtle and easy to miss on the first viewing, so watch closely. What international adoption does to everyone it touches is humbling, enlightening and life altering. Are you sure you’re ready for this kind of family?
