The Real Finn and Rey Talk About Adoption | Original Video

They're both passionate about Star Wars . . . and adoption.

Denalee Chapman May 19, 2016

Victor and Julianne aren’t actors . . . but one would never believe it from their cosplay photos (in which they’re dressed like Star Wars’ Finn and Rey) which have gone viral. Soon to be married, the couple is also in the midst of an adoption. Victor will soon legally be Addie’s father—Addie is Julianne’s daughter. Julianne is no stranger to the adoption world either. Several years ago she gave birth to a little boy. She chose to place him for adoption and Julianne knows that was the best thing for him. In this video, they talk about being a birth parent, adopting a step-child, and the voice this newly-famous couple hopes to give to adoption. 

Visit Julianne and Vic on their Facebook page to follow their progress.
