Instant Family is out now on Blu-ray/DVD! #InstantFamily

INSTANT FAMILY is heartwarming film, inspired by the real events from the life of writer/director Sean Anders, follows Pete (Mark Wahlberg) and Ellie (Rose Byrne) as they decide to start a family and stumble into the world of foster care adoption. They hope to take in one small child but when they meet three siblings, including a rebellious 15 year old girl (Isabela Moner), they find themselves speeding from zero to three kids overnight. Now, Pete and Ellie must hilariously try to learn the ropes of instant parenthood in the hopes of becoming a family. INSTANT FAMILY also stars Octavia Spencer, Tig Notaro and Margo Martindale.

The film is rated PG-13.  

I recently received an INSTANT FAMILY activity kit with items based upon moments from the film, including “Grandma’s make-up kit” (washable markers and a make-up bag), a t-shirt with fabric markers and fabric paint, a custom bag, balloons, a hairbrush and the Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack of INSTANT FAMILY.   
We can't wait to use the t-shirt with fabric markers and fabric paint to make a shirt like Grandma Sandy!

This is such a heart-warming movie.  You will laugh and you will cry. The movie revolves about a couple who decide to enter the foster care system in hopes of one day adopting. After meeting a teenage girl, they decide they want to foster her and her siblings.  At first it seems easy, but each child has their own quirks, like the youngest only eats potato chips and the boy is afraid of everything. Of course taking in a teenager is a whoe another ball game as she doesn't want to connect with the family.  It is a great movie about the real meaning of family.  It addresses real-life issues and concerns related to foster care and adoption.
