According to People, Britton spent three years going through the adoption process before taking home a 9-month-old baby boy from Ethiopia, Eyob.
"It was such a wonderful moment of completion," Britton said of holding her son for the first time. "I thought I was going to collapse into a puddle of tears. I was just grinning from ear to ear."
After teen mom Quinn declared on the Sept. 27 episode that she wanted to get her daughter back from adoptive mom Shelby, more than 750 people have signed an online petition asking 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy to produce an adoption PSA to counteract the fact that the show "perpetuates myths about adoption that harm adopted children, adoptive parents, and birth parents alike."
(S06E20) After several weeks of repeats, 'Grey's Anatomy' returns with an explosion of cast drama. The episode on a whole underwhelmed and could have been placed before the repeats. The Arizona/Callie baby issues continue, Teddy is still awkward in her situation, Owen still feels caught between two women, and Mark is still in a midlife crisis.
There were classic moments that reminded me of the heyday of 'Grey's,' where Cristina was the squealing fan to the rock star doctor, when Bailey told it like it is to Lexie, and the final moment between Derek and Meredith. It saddened me when we saw a few seconds of the lunch room, and the smallest table had Meredith, Christina and Alex as the only people remaining from the original interns. Alex really needs a plot line instead of having to sit alone and pout about life.
We're not sure we'd want the whole thing captured on national television, because it's such a private thing. But maybe it'll give others hope of finding their lost relatives, too.
Or ... in the case of kids given up for adoption, is it better to not delve into the past? After all, it's their adoptive parents who raised them. Sound off with your thoughts.
Watch the video after the jump.
I'll have a full review next Thursday night, but let's just say you won't be disappointed. The show is just like it has always been: funny, unpredictable, and really clever. We even find out how a few plot points from the past actually turned out. The guest star in the first episode is Will and Grace's Megan Mullally, who plays an adoption agency rep who has to check out Liz's workplace to see if she's a suitable candidate to raise a child. Will Arnett also appears, as Jack tries to get his job back.
If Don were ten years older and this was 1972 instead of 1962, we'd be saying that Don Draper is going through a mid-life crisis. After spending last week contemplating a new future with the jet set, or at least getting the offer of a hobo-existence without the worries of finances or fidelity, Don was compelled to look back before making a choice. That phone call at the end of The Jet Set was to the real Mrs. Draper.
Back home, meanwhile, Betty is again faced with having to grow up. Between her father's decline, Don's disappearance and her rebukes of Arthur and Glenn, Betts has been forced to be more than she's been in the past. Sally's latest stunt shouldn't be a shock considering that she's snuck a drink earlier this season and clearly idolizes everything her father does.
Sally blames Betty for Don's absence, and Betty realizes that pain she's been feeling is just as acute for her child and she does something human about it -- she gives Sally the boots to cushion the blow of the truth that Daddy may not be coming back.
Smith, who plays Dr. Erica Hahn on Grey's, already has one daughter Fanny (five-years-old) with her cinematographer husband Stephen Lubensky. Back in October, Brooke Smith told People that she would consider adopting, "You know, why not?"
According to People, Smith and her husband have traveled to Africa on numerous occasions. In fact, she and Lubensky filmed a documentary about the conservationists in Zimbabwe.
Still, the 44-year-old former cheerleader remains optimistic about her chances of giving birth to a biological child. "With medical technology these days, I could have children by myself using a donor. But I would rather be in a relationship so the child has a father to help instill core values," Paula said.
Pop superstar Madonna, who is currently shopping for a baby at a large store called "the world," will tape an interview with Oprah Winfrey that will air this Wednesday.
Madonna's adoption of a Malawi boy is currently in dispute by the boy's father. Or maybe it's not. It's really hard to follow all of the twists and turns of this story. But I'm sure the Material Girl will set the record straight when she sits down on Oprah's couch.
The baby's name is David, and he is currently in London as all the adoption legal stuff is figured out.
Obviously, with only three episodes left, we're seeing things finally start coming to a close, though so far it's really no match for what we saw in this series' first season.
Basically, a show suffers from Providence Syndrome when it finds the need to place funky, stringed instrument plucks during humorous scenes, as if to say, "hey everyone, this is a funny scene so we're going to throw some of these plucky notes at you." You know the tune: blump blump...blump blump! Watch just about any scene featuring Susan and you'll hear that tune.
Anyway, I digress. On to the show.
