84th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

I have a real affinity towards couples who choose to adopt. It is giving the promise of a new life and a second chance to a child who truly deserves it after often being dealt some bad hands when it came to their birthing parents. I also think it is incredible when celebrities adopt, because they are then offering a type of a lifestyle to a child who may have suffered and had nothing their whole lives (up to that point).  Here are 12 celebrities who adopted their children.
