135,000 kids are adopted each year in the United States with some lucky enough to find their forever homes with famous celebrities like Hugh Jackman and Madonna. That’s like hitting the jackpot twice. Not only are these kids finding families that want to love them unconditionally but they get the perks of living that privileged life too. Is it late to be adopted in your 30’s?
Many celebrities have teamed up with World Adoption Day to not only show their support for adoption but to also bring awareness to the kids that could use some love from a stable family in their lives. You too can support the movement by sharing a photo of a smiley face on your hand and posting with the hashtag #WorldAdoptionDay like many have already done today.
We here at theChive are a big family and nothing hits home more than helping those in need, so we’re supporting this movement to see a family for every child. At the end of the day, these celebs go through life just like everyone else. They struggle with fertility issues, they experience gut-wrenching heartache, they go through court proceedings, they just want to love a child and have a family, and they trust the process just like everyone else. As you’ll see, adoption brings so much joy into people’s lives that if you’re lucky enough to adopt a child you’ll be a celebrity in their eyes.
