Kate and John come to an orphanage to adopt a girl. Now Kate's watching the children having a party there, when Sister Abigail comes up:
ABIGAIL: I never get tired of watching these kids enjoy the party.
KATE: It really is. I'm so sorry we didn't do this sooner.
ABIGAIL: Don't be. It's a big leap.
Orphan, movie

What does IT refer to?
Thank you.

EDIT: maybe: "the party is really enjoyable"?:rolleyes:

    But the writers should have had something in mind, and the actor said that. Could it possibly mean what I suggested in #1 at least?:)

    I've just viewed a clip: Vic's transcription is correct. The "It really is" looks like a complete non-sequitur. I can only assume there's been some over-exuberant cutting:(.

    Something like:
    ABIGAIL: I never get tired of watching these kids enjoy the party. It’s wonderful, isn’t it?
    KATE: It really is. I'm so sorry we didn't do this sooner.
