I just saw a post onOmg! website that 36 year old Charlize Theron has adopted a child. For some reason I was thrilled. I kept saying inwardly ‘this is what I’m talking about’. There are many Hollywood women who have adopted kid(s) with/without their biological children such as Angelina Jolie and Madonna. These women have (for lack of a better word) advertised adoption in Hollywood.
So I’m gonna share my perception here. You may or may not agree with what I’m about to write but that is why it’s my perception. You can share yours in the comment box.
Charlize Theron says that she isn’t sure that marriage is on her list but being a mom has been and she has gone out of her way to be one. In my opinion, I think Hollywood or young, wealthy, single women, who have not found their partner or husband should consider adopting a child. There are many kids out there who are looking for love and affection from not-for-long strangers. If these women can take care of their selves comfortably then, they could be doing at least one orphan or less privileged a huge favour by adopting them.
There are women out there like Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston and many others who should have been married or in serious relationships. They may not be able to find a partner yet, but they could consider adopting a child of their own whom they are positive wouldn’t leave them for some time. Being a mum makes you fully responsible for not just yourself but that other person (your child).
I’m not implying that every single independent woman should go and adopt here. No! Not everyone can do what Angelina Jolie did. What I’m saying is that if one has the means to care for a child, then she can consider the possibility of adoption. It doesn’t necessarily have to be heartbreak that would make one go about adoption. It could be loneliness; means to finding yourself; it could be because you want to or; it could be to have a sense of responsibility. Whatever your reasons may be, the point is to channel that restlessness or whatever it is in making someone happy who in turn would make you happy.
