    It is beautiful to see women/families, who may not be able to have children or women who just want to take care of a child in need, adopt these beautiful children. They all look happy and healthy, that’s what is most important.

    • MalcolmLittle

      It would be nice if more single men adopted…particularly black men. The young black boys are lost without yall.

      that jordan and gold chain money could be put to better use

      • lucascott

        it is legally a lot harder for single men to adopt. Which sucks because having a penis doesn’t mean they can’t raise a child

  • Esme

    Maddox was adopted by Angelina Jolie when she was in the process of divorcing Billy Bob Thorton, Angelina was in the process of adopting Pax when she recently got involved with Brad Pitt.
    Zahara was adopted when they have decided to become a family.
