ABC shows feature adoption plotlines


Cameron: ''Yes, I've gained a few extra pounds while we were expecting the baby.

Mitchell: ''I'm not saying anything.''
Cameron: ''You're saying everything!''
TV's newest gay couple, featured in the ABC insult-heavy comedy ''Modern Family.'' Cameron, the heavier of the pair, invites Mitchell's judgemental family over to announce their adoption of a baby girl from Viet Nam in the pilot episode. (Modern Family via HULU)

"A baby isn't like a Marc Jacobs suit. You can't return it if it doesn't fit.''
Scotty arguing with his husband Kevin on the ABC drama ''Brothers and Sisters'' about their interest in adopting a baby.

2011 shows with Adoption Plotlines: In Plain Sight, Glee, Parenthood, Once Upon a Time, NCIS, Grey's Anatomy, and Rizzoli and Isles.

We are going to look at movies and TV and all the ways the adoption industry portrays adoption this month (#NAAM 2012).
