Hill Harper had always wanted to be a father. But he expected to do it in the traditional way . . . get married, then have kids. But a friend encouraged him to look into adoption. He did, speaking with an adoption attorney about the process, but still wasn’t sure if he was ready for fatherhood.
Then the adoption attorney gave him a call. There was a baby due in three weeks. Was he interested?
“I was so scared. I think because it was such a huge decision,” said Harper of his decision to adopt. “But looking back now, all the fears I had were ridiculously small compared to the joy of having him in my life and having the opportunity to be a father.”
You don’t hear a lot about single dads adopting, but here’s a celebrity adoption story that will warm your heart!
