The Lost and Found Family


Ester Hobbes (Ellen Bry) lives a high society life until her husband dies in an accident and she is left with nothing except for a house in rural Georgia that is being used as a foster home. She moves in with the intention of selling the house, but from the unexpected kindness of the foster parents, she ends up helping to take care of the rebellious teenagers (Lucas Till and Jessica Luza) and 3 other young children who have issues of their own. Through her faith and prayers, she finds a new meaning and purpose for her life.

Dove Review

We never know what God has planned for any of us. Sometimes the life change comes as a total shock when a love one dies unexpectedly. This story is about discovery, compassion, hope and love. As Mrs. Hobbes looks at the family and the new surroundings she finds herself in, she becomes aware of the effects of her new position on everyone. Not sure why she is in this situation, she asks God for his guidance.

This movie deals with some issues of the foster care system. I am not sure that younger children would understand. We are pleased to award “The Lost and Found Family” our Dove “Faith Friendly” Seal for ages 12 and over.
