We bet you didn’t know that these celebrities were adopted

We recently watched the movie Lion – I won’t give too much away in case you have not seen it, but it’s based on a true story involving adoption and it really touched my heart. Yes, we live in a hard and often cruel world but in among all the rot, there are still many people who have hearts of pure gold.

It doesn’t matter what the terms of the adoption were … family member adopting a child / children or couples choosing to adopt from an orphanage, the fact that people are willing to take in, raise and love a child who is not their own, it’s such a beautiful, selfless act. There are far too many children around the world who are in desperate need of a loving home

Did you know that Bill Clinton’s mother was widowed before he was born and that his grandparents adopted him?

Faith Hill was also adopted as a baby but chose to search for (and found) her biological mother in later years.
