Martian Child


Good movies seem to be few and far between. Last weekend we stumbled across Martian Child with John Cusack at the video store. Those of you who already adopted will have so many "oh, yeah" moments. Its worth a rent.

Cusack play an adoptive father who does his best as a new parent to a child who has been hurt and abandoned. I love that he realizes that even though he himself is a mess, he can love this child that is just as much of a mess. Favorite line from the movie: "I'm waiting for the man with the UV protection." The truth is, there are over a million children in the world waiting too.

We saw it when it first came out (mainly for the Cusak connection...LOL!) and were disappointed it didn't fair better at the box office. It is a great reminder that children are learning from us what it means to be family, and how to fit into a world that is strange! Now that it's out were going to buy it!
