Change of Plans

I had the pleasure of reviewing this movie before it aired on television.  I must tell you that it is a must see movie that reinforces the power of family.

Jason and Sally are a professional couple without children.  Their lives and careers are fulfilling and they are happy with life and each other.  But their lives take a drastic turn when Sally learns her best friend and her husband are killed in a plane crash in Uganda where they were working in the peace corps.
The couple left four children, 3 of which were adopted.  One minute Jason and Sally were free to travel without worries and the next they become guardians of four children. 

Along with these new members of the household come the problems associated with parenthood.  From adjustments at new schools to teenage issues, Sally and Jason are given a quick indoctrination into the lives of parents.  Of course, tensions arise and a minor legal problem occurs but each member of this family do learn that sacrifice and compromise are necessary ingredients to a successful family life.

This movie airs tomorrow night (1/8) on Fox at 7:00 CST.  I urge you and your family to watch this amazing movie.  This is a family movie that will not disappoint you.
