“When I first saw her, I had this feeling of, ‘Oh!  I found you!’”

Nia Vardalos speaks about how adoption has played a significant role in her life.

She and her husband adopted a three-year-old girl from foster care and it has changed her life greatly. She was able to become a mother and feel the joy that brings.  She is now acting as an advocate for the 120,000+ children in foster care who are ready to be adopted, trying to spread awareness about this wonderful way of building families and providing homes for children.

It’s so good to see these positive adoption stories in the media, especially from celebrities in Hollywood.
