Most people in the adoption and foster care field are familiar with the inspirational blockbuster film The Blind Side which is the story of Michael Oher and the Tuohy family. Well, if you thought that was a great story you have to check out the new show Family Addition. 

Family Addition is hosted by Leigh Anne Tuohy and it follows the lives of families who have been fostering children and on the verge of adopting one or more of their foster children. Family Addition will feature families as they go through the practical, physical and emotional process of adding a new family member by adoption or foster care. 

When I heard about this new TV series I was so excited for the premiere because many of the stories regarding foster care and adoption in the media are focused on negative aspects. I always felt like a show should cover the realities foster care and adoption - the challenges and the rewards. Make sure to tune in tonight at 9pm eastern time and let us know what you think about the premiere!  

UP is available to DISH NETWORK SUBSCRIBERS on channel 188, DIRECTV channel 338, Verizon FiOS channel 224 and on local cable.
