I have just received this article into my inbox from my google alerts on adoption and I am beyond the pale on this one...
Sex and the City Star Willie Garson Adopts a son.
This is a 8 year old boy and my first thoughts were perhaps this is *ok* perhaps this child was a victim of abuse and being removed from that hell would be better..
BUT No, no such luck, this child was at an adoption fair, unable to be cared for by his biological mother anymore.
Garson says he will certainly allow Nathan's biological mother to visit him, saying, "For many reasons, she couldn't care for him, but I will never let her not see him."
The 45-year-old actor originally wanted to adopt a 3-year-old before meeting Nathan at an adoption fair.
Of the adoption process, Garson says, "It's like a pet fair -- as horrifying as you can imagine. It was really hard. The 16-year-old fat ugly kid, who has probably been to thirty of these, knows he's not going to get adopted. Like everything else, cute wins. I couldn't believe my kid was actually available for adoption. He's so cute and sweet."
