New T.V. Show Highlights Supporting Adoptive Families

This uplifting series features the stories of people making a difference in kids' lives. Be inspired by everyday heroes. Hosted by Leigh Anne Tuohy, the real-life inspiration behind the blockbuster film The Blind Side which earned Sandra Bullock an Academy Award® for Best Actress, “Family Addition with Leigh Anne Tuohy” will feature families as they go through the practical, physical and emotional process of adding a new family member and make over part of their homes to accommodate the new addition.
Tuohy will provide the series’ creative vision and oversee the home improvement projects for each episode. “Family Addition” will also feature Team Tuohy, which includes the insight of Tuohy’s daughter, Collins Tuohy, a noted inspirational speaker and co-owner of Whimsy Cookie Company, a boutique cookie company; and Special Educator “Miss Sue” Mitchell (the character played by Kathy Bates in The Blind Side), each providing support to families in unique ways as they transition into their new family situation. And as is Leigh Anne’s get-it-done-style, don’t be surprised who else may show up as needed to help get the project completed.
An advocate for the underdog, Leigh Anne's family fostered and then adopted Michael Oher and changed his life forever – or as Leigh Anne would say, Michael changed their lives forever.
