Celebrity Adoptions

Recommended Posts

Ugghh! Sadly most people outside of the adoption world will think that is funny.

Not funny at all, I am not sure when people are going to realize that "joking" about adopting or placing a child isn't and never will be funny.

I'm both infuriated and unbelievably saddened by this. I know I don't have to explain why this burns me as a birth mom so I will spare the nitty gritty details. My eyes teared up and my stomach dropped upon reading this.

SF qb Colin Kaepernick is adopted. Found this article on SI. http://m.espn.go.com/wireless/story?storyId=8897116. Very sad that he has chosen to not contact his birthparents. Hopefully one day he will.

Thankful for abrazo and open adoption.

Who knew?! Jane Fonda is the adoptive mother of a now-grown woman who quietly joined her family as a disadvantaged teenager: http://www.oprah.com/spirit/Jane-Fondas-Daughter-Visits-Her-Biological-Family.

Huge fan of Duck Dynasty. Glenn had duck hunted in the area. We are hooked. Loved the adoption story of his son.

Watched the interview with Jane's daughter last night on the TV network OWN (Oprah). She showed her birthmom and how she has reunited with many of her family members. She is very well spoken and Janes kept refering to her as her "miracle"......who knew!? But, she has written a book about growing up & growing up as Jane's daughter. Great interview with Oprah!

A sad account of a reportedly-disastrous celebrity adoption involving an adoptive mom who grew up right here, in San Antonio:

He may have been an Adoption Angel recognized by Congress, but this adoptive dad does not get my nomination for "Parent of the Year"...

Mick Jagger is mourning the death of his longtime girlfriend, who happened to be an adoptee: http://www.azcentral.com/story/entertainment/people/2014/03/20/lwren-scott-hated-adopted-life/6642301/.

Lorraine Dusky, a birthmom whose relinquished daughter also committed suicide, writes about L'Wren's tragic passing here: http://www.firstmotherforum.com/2014/03/saying-goodbye-to-adoptee-lwren-scott.html?m=1.

May Ms. Scott find in death the peace (and the answers) that appeared to so evade her in life...

Ok, I haven't read this entire thread. But I'm watching the program about Barbara Walters and did not realize that her daughter was adopted and that Hugh Jackman's two children are adoptees too. Who knew? Probably most of you ;)

I believe that Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, are big advocates of adoption here and in Australia.
