adoption quotes by world-famous celebrites around the world

Aside from poorly told stories of adoption and foster care on TV and in movies, adoption is not in the limelight on a daily basis. The other main source of adoption information in the news is when a celebrity adopts a child. However, this also perpetuates the idea that adoption is only obtainable for the rich and connected. Regardless of the myths surrounding it, celebrity adoption has done a lot to bring adoption to the forefront. Here are four celebrity quotes about adoption that showed the world a different side of the adoption journey.

Adoption Quotes By Angelina Jolie

Adoption Quotes By Angelina Jolie

“When I was growing up I wanted to adopt, because I was aware there were kids that didn’t have parents. It’s not a humanitarian thing because I don’t see it as a sacrifice. It’s a gift. We’re all lucky to have each other.”

Angelina Jolie

Though she is one of the most popular celebrity adoptive moms, Angelina has been much more active than talkative regarding adoption. She has adopted a total of three children and has used her celebrity position to shine a light on adoption. She has always adopted quietly but advocated in her personal time for children in general through various organizations and as a Goodwill Ambassador.


Adoption Quotes By Katherine Heigl

“Anyone who doesn’t have experience with adoption wonders, ‘Does love for a child come through DNA?’ I knew it didn’t.”

Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl has come a long way since her days on Grey’s Anatomy. After marrying musician Josh Kelley, she adopted two daughters. Katherine announced that she was pregnant with a son in 2016, joking about preferring adoption over the hormones. Much of the reason that Heigl knew that the love for a child was more than just DNA was because her older sister was adopted from Korea. Heigl has been very vocal about her love for all of her children and her heart for adoption.


Adoption Quotes By Hugh Jackman

Adoption Quotes By Hugh Jackman

“I think adoption is a blessing all around, when it’s done right.”

Hugh Jackman

While adoption is often referred to as “beautiful,” it is possible for adoption to be a negative experience for some. Adoption can be a blessing when everyone is on the same journey together and all sides are respected. Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra Lee Furness adopted two children after suffering multiple miscarriages. Hugh and his wife also work in Australia through the Adopt Change Campaign that makes it easier for Australians to adopt in an effort to increase adoptions in Australia. For Jackman, adoption seemed like a logical step, and he speaks openly about how adoption has changed his family’s life.


Adoption Quotes By Mariska Hargitay

“Adoption was a bumpy ride — very bumpy. But, God, was it worth the fight.” 

Mariska Hargitay

Mariska Hargitay may play a tough-as-nails police lieutenant on Law and Order: SVU, but in her personal life, nothing is more important to her than family. After the birth of her biological son, Hargitay adopted two children, but as she said, it was definitely a bumpy ride. In an interview with Good Housekeeping, Mariska details her first adoption journey, which ended in the child’s birth mother choosing to parent. Despite a failed adoption, she chose to press on and was able to grow her family through adoption twice, making the second portion of her quote incredibly true. The result was worth the fight!


Adoption quotes by world-famous writers

Adoption quotes by world famous writers

I think adoption is the best thing that ever happened to me. A couple that is childless and has worked very hard at having a child, then goes through the grueling process of adoption, then suddenly finds a child or baby on the doorstep, provides the most loving environment any child can enter.  

Faith Daniels, journalist

Faith Daniels joined CBS news at the age of 28 in 1985—their youngest news anchor ever. She was conceived as the result of a rape and her mother chose to make an adoption plan. Faith recalls, “I walked into a very loving environment where everything was put on hold when they had kids. Even though my mother worked, we came first. The family was blue-collar all the way. Mom worked; dad worked. They didn’t have a lot of money, just lots of love.”


The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity.

Leo Tolstoy, author, essayist, and playwright

Leo Tolstoy was a Russian writer who is regarded as one of the greatest writers of all time. Both of his parents died before he was ten, and he was raised by his grandmother, who died, and then his aunt, who also died, and finally by another aunt.  He was a pacifist and humanitarian, moved and galvanized by the storms and shelters of his youth.


Adoption requires many acts of faith: the birth mother’s, that her offspring will find a better life elsewhere; the adoptive parent’s, that he will be able to provide it; the adopted child’s, that the tension between what is and what might have been will be a force of creation, not destruction.

Meghan Krogh, storyteller and writing coach

So many birth mothers and adoptive parents wade into the unknown when they begin to make an adoption plan. Like any act of faith, a little effort and the right perspective will let you walk on water.


As a mother, my children have always come first. And even though I’ve always been a working woman, I have always tried to have them with me as often as I could…I tried to make things silly and funny, so we always had a good time.

Julie Andrews, actress and author of Home

Julie Andrews is best known as the ideal, sunlit instant mother in movies like The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins, but few know that the actress and author adopted two Vietnamese orphan girls with her husband, Blake, in 1974. Many working moms know the unique delectation of involving your children in your work when it is necessary so that you can be together and continue to provide for your family. Children are curiously inspired by watching their parents glean satisfaction from their contributions to the world, and they will remember it as they themselves become adults.  


My kid knows I’m her real mother. Not biological, but real. It doesn’t get any realer than this.

Tama Janowitz, American novelist

Tama Janowitz adopted her daughter Willow from China when Willow was just nine months old. In “The Real Thing,” her opinion piece for the New York Times, she talks about raising her child in New York City, where few people blinked twice at the sight of an interracial family. “Everyone feels that they are doing the best possible job as a parent,” she says, “but there is so little that is clean-cut in child-rearing.”


The purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whatever is around to be loved.

Kurt Vonnegut, author and playwright

No one knows more about the joy of loving those around who need it than Vonnegut, who adopted his sister’s three children after she died of cancer shortly after losing her husband in a car crash. The author of Slaughterhouse Five later adopted another daughter with his wife, completing his family of nine.


It is important to remember that we adopt not because we are rescuers. No. We adopt because we are rescued.

David Platt, author

This pastor and best-selling author of Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream adopted children from Kazakhstan and Nepal, and his church has provided homes for 160 children without families. He reminds us that we adopt to pay our love and fortune forward.


Little souls find their way to you, whether from your womb or someone else’s.

Sheryl Crow, singer/songwriter

Sheryl Crow adopted Wyatt, now eleven, in 2007, and Levi, now six, in 2010. “I don’t want to spend any nights away from home,” she said. “When you have kids, your priorities definitely change. I really felt consistency is the most important thing.”

Adoption quotes that you can not ignore

Adoption is complicated. It gets more complicated as my children grow and become aware of the world around them. When we started this journey with the birth of our first son six years ago, we knew that open adoption would be best for him. We had no idea what that would mean, look like, or be. We just knew that we wanted to raise children who knew they were loved, didn’t feel abandoned (at least not all the time), and had confidence in themselves. The complexity of relationships in adoption can change day by day and year by year.  Here are a few quotes that capture some of the feelings adoptees have about adoption.

adoption quotes by Dave Thomas

1. “There is so much loss wrapped up in adoption that it is unfair to ask a child to be thankful.“ — Anonymous

2. “I’m no expert.  I’m just a hamburger cook.  But I believe in adoption. I believe it is a positive thing.  I think everyone deserves a permanent, loving home.” — Dave Thomas, Wendy’s Founder

3. “I have a lot of respect for my birth mother.  I know she must have had a lot of love for me to want to give me what she felt was a better chance.” — Faith Hill

4. “I am a living testament that you can be adopted and successful.” — Dante Culpepper

5. “There is one woman whose gentle face is always before me, whose voice I hear when there is silence in the house and whose gnarled hands seems to be shyly touching my shoulders when my thoughts are blue.” — Art Linkletter

6. “My (adoptive) mother showed me how to reach for something extra when the logical decision is to give up.  She had an unwavering faith in my talent and my ability, more than I did at that time.” — Scott Hamilton

7. “They brought me up as if I was their own child.  They worried about me, guided me, punished me, all in the spirit of fairness.  I never doubted their love.” — Nelson Mandela

8. “Your child was adopted.  They will be and should be a million other things in their lifetime, as well.” — Madeleine Melcher

9. “I’m an orphan.  But the public adopted me, and that has been my only family.  The biggest family in the world is my fans.” — Eartha Kitt

10. “I speak about family and adoption because it 100% changed my life and who I am.  It definitely played a very large role into just learning how to be grateful for what you have and being fulfilled in a way that a lot of adopted kids don’t feel.” — Jenna Ushkowitz

No matter what your connection to adoption or what part of the triad you represent, there are always going to be strong and differing feelings across the board. Some have wonderful adoption stories to share and others have tragic adoption stories. This shapes and moulds their opinion of life, adoption, and moving forward. It is possible to heal, recover, and live fulfilling, happy lives through adoption. Embrace the good, the bad, and the ugly and work through it as a family. And then revel in the glory that brought you together.
