Special Narration by Sean and Beth Anders
Provided by MDC Productions
Sean Anders is a renowned Hollywood director, screenwriter, and producer. His directing and writing credits include hit films like Instant Family, Daddy’s Home 1 & 2, Horrible Bosses 2, and We’re the Millers. Sean and his wife Beth are proud parents of three children. His award-winning film Instant Family is loosely based on their own adoption journey and has helped shine a much-needed spotlight on the plight of children in the foster care system. We are so honored to have Sean and Beth narrate Flight of the Heart, an animated short which focuses on families waiting to adopt and encourages stakeholders to remove some of the barriers which keep children from being adopted.
An Invitation: Join the Journey
There are an estimated 30,000 children in foster care who are eligible for adoption and do not have a family identified to adopt them. Yet, prospective adoptive families outnumber waiting children by a ratio of 5 to 1 (Kamarck, 2011). America does not lack families who desire to adopt children from the U.S. foster care system. But our nation does lack tools that can efficiently and appropriately connect waiting children with waiting families.
