Luckily, we have people like the following celebrities, who take it upon themselves to adopt children in order to create a little more love.
Really, it's a beautiful thing.
Charlize is a single mom to two children, and they were both adopted.
Their names are Jackson and August, and you can just tell that she is such a good mother.
On why she wanted to adopt:
“My sister Meg is Korean, and my parents adopted her 3 years before I was born. I wanted my own family to resemble the one I came from, so I always knew I wanted to adopt from Korea. We have talked about having biological children as well, but we decided to adopt first.”
This woman is truly a force of nature.
Not only is she a great actress, but a caring person as well. She and her husband, Julian Tennon adopted a little girl, Genesis Tennon, in 2011.
Apparently, Sandra Bullock adopted her first son, Louis from New Orleans. And it was Hurricane Katrina that made her want to adopt.
"Katrina happened in New Orleans and something told me, 'My child is there.'"

What a nice thing to do for not only the children but even their son!

“Adoption is a very complicated road, filled with incredibly emotional and challenging aspects. At its core, adoption is about loss. It’s one that needs a lot of good support for everybody, so that everyone is clear about the feelings that are being stirred up for everyone.”
Over her life, she has adopted two sons: she adopted Wyatt in 2007 and Levi three years later.
