    1. your never too old to watch a little kid show if they like it they’ll watch it I wish they could make the show for everyone it helps with social skills

  1. Awwww, my daughter loves Doc McStuffin, I just told her about this and she forced me to let her watch the video. LOL (Great now she’s going around telling everyone Doc McStuffin is having a new baby. Look at what you started! Sigh.)

    But I like that they’re tackling adoption.

  2. My husband and I adopted our precious gift from God last year. She LOVES Doc McStuffin, so I can’t wait for her to see these episodes.

  3. I think this so amazing me and my husband adopted a baby girl on March 4 , 2014 and she absolutely love with doc mcstuffins shows and the fact that this taking place on her bday is awesome God really has a sense of humor I love it…..

  4. I can wait, my daughter is really struggling since her new brother arrived a few months ago and this may help her. Both of mine are adopted so subject close to home

  5. I only wish they were considering adopting an older child, because there are so many in need! Glad to hear that Disney is wiling to expose young kids to such a need, and that they will grow up with generous hearts and minds to care for ALL.

  6. Im super excited…my 4 year old adores Doc McStuffins and is a huge fan and im excited she admires a doctor and not because of the color of her skin and her favorite characters is Doc Lambie and Stuffy

  7. So cute! I think it’s really cute, especially for kids, because most of them love cartoons. The adoption theme is also really interesting, it shows how it’s important to talk about it.

  8. I’m so pleased about this storyline. Our daughter, whom we adopted as an infant in 2010, loves Doc McStuffins! She has watched the episodes thus far with interest, and they’ve helped reinforce many things we’ve told her about adoption.

  9. My Daughter Loves this episode … She’s so anxiously waiting for the MAYA and LALA plush doll.. She has me checking Disney store everyday for them and watches Doc McStuffins all the time, her favorite show .

  10. My 4-year old granddaughter is already asking me to search for the plush toy of Maya McStuffins. She’s excited about the new addition.
