Adoption is Beautiful is a national movement organized by Adoption-Share, a 501 (c) 3 tax exempt organization and orchestrated in partnership with adoption agencies, online influencers, and adoption organizations from all over the United States each year, to ignite a positive and informative conversation about adoption in the United States. Stories move us in powerful ways and this campaign will give those impacted by adoption a platform to share their story.
This year, to raise awareness about adoption in the United States, Adoption-Share is teaming up with the new animated film STORKS, arriving in theaters September 23.
Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet retail giant Cornerstore.com. Junior (Andy Samberg), the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when the Baby Factory is accidentally activated on his watch, producing an adorable – and wholly unauthorized – baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip (Katie Crown), the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop, in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world.
Though STORKS is not a movie about adoption, the threads that are interwoven in the film touch on many of the same values that the adoption community celebrate. By partnering with STORKS we wish to advance a much needed conversation about adoption in the United States, celebrate the values of family, belonging, and love, and draw awareness to the over 100,000 children waiting to find their forever families.
Join the conversation by sharing your #storkstory on social media and right here!
Resource For Foster + Adoptive Parents
Though STORKS is not a movie about adoption, there may be associations, words, or phrases in the film that may bring up questions in foster care children and adopted children about their own origins. To equip those families whose children may reflect on their own stories, we have partnered with C.A.S.E. in providing age specific resources to help parents navigate these conversations in healthy ways.
