Pete and Ellie are a work-oriented childless couple who likely won’t ever have kids. At least, that’s how it appears.
They spend their time renovating old houses and selling them for a profit -- a profession that has netted them plenty of cash even if it does require lots of work. Still, they wonder if they’re making a mistake by choosing an empty nest.
Then things begin to change. Ellie visits a foster care website and grows heartbroken by the pictures of kids needing a loving home. Pete does the same. Pretty soon, they’re attending an orientation for prospective parents, learning about the ins and outs of the foster care system and trying to decide if they want to take the plunge.
The movie Instant Family (PG-13) opens this weekend, telling the story of a couple who brings three foster care siblings into their home -- a teenage girl and two younger children -- and then must decide if they want to make the arrangement permanent.
