Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Don't be surprised if you start tearing up five minutes into this show. After all, it's heavy, emotional stuff -- and it was dreamed up by the producer of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, another surefire tearjerker. The fact that both Green and Joyner come from adoptive families adds even more depth and sincerity to the experience, but you don't need to have a direct connection to the adoption process to appreciate what the featured families are going through. Their emotions are captured in such a raw, inspiring way that you can't help but be affected by their stories. So tune in ... but don't forget the tissues.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
