Hoda Kotb and More Stars Who Grew Their Families Through Adoption
The gift of the family is an indescribable bond.
There is something so precious about this special kind of love that comes in all shapes and sizes. There are a few unique ways to expand that narrow circle, and one of those methods is to adopt.
With National Adoption Day on November 21, now is the perfect time to shine a light on several celebrities who have chosen this life-changing process.
In 2017, country star Thomas rhett and his wife, Lauren Akins, adopted a special member of their family from Uganda – affectionately, an 18 month old baby girl named Will Gray Akins.
“The word ‘adopted’ doesn’t even make sense in my head anymore,” the “Die A Happy Man” singer said in an interview with People. “I know it happened and I remember it very well, but I feel like she has always been there. Even though Willa Gray is from [a] a completely different part of the world, it’s ours and it feels like it never was. “
