Meg Ryan has to be one of the happiest adoption mothers on the planet. She believes she and her daughter Daisy were “destined” to be together. “There was nothing random about this adoption. We’re totally compatible.” Above, Meg is taking her little girl, 3 ½, to pre-school.

    Now that’s the way we can recognize our Meg – dressed in ugly rags that a second hand store would hardly sell. And the hair, yep, that’s the hair we grew to know and love.

    Hey Rita, how come there are kids up for adoption in the US? Are you a third world country? This thing certainly isn’t happening in other Western nations! I am glad Meg chose NOT to adopt from the awful US private adoption system, which has women selling their babies to the highest bidder. Instead, she adopted a baby that otherwise would have ended up in an orphanage.

    This is “THE” baby-killer?

    I think it’s wonderful to give any child a home who needs it. But I chuckle at the comment that the child is compatible. As a mother of teenagers, let’s check back with Meg when Daisy is around 15 years old…we’ll see how compatible she is then! 🙂

    Celebs do good for all the wrong reasons.
    Media Adulation
    Better Roles
    good press
    ego trips
    I am saving the world syndrome.
    btw Daisy is just as cute as Suri.

    If someone does something good, do you think it matters that it was for a “wrong” reason?

    Yes it does matter. It is called CHARACTER something celebs don’t know anything about , kids are not trophies.

    “This is “THE” baby-killer?”
    -Hey Gerard… you effing moron…what the hell is THIS supposed to mean? NONE of your posts EVER make ANY sense. ARE you illiterate or just your mama dropped you on your pointed head when you were 50 and still sucking her teats? Cuase you are beyond STUPID!! Every post you write makes NO sense whatsoever and all you do is rave about “faggots”…you know…those that rave like you do usually ARE the closet queens, it’s a known fact, closet jerk-off!! Why don’t you do the world a favor and go swallow some drano???!!!

    My daughter is 10 and adopted from China as well.
    Meg Ryan is not alone: there is a very strong feeling w/in the FCC — Families with Children from China — community that our kids were destined for US. I definitely feel it w/ my daughter, and have since the moment I met her at nine months old. And for those who ask about domestic adoption, unless you are very VERY rich, your choice of a baby born in the U.S. is generally this: a drug-addicted baby COUPLED with bio parents who will not sign papers over to the adoptive family for at least a couple of years, while they and the courts are “trying to work things out.” Or, perhaps a teenage mom whose diet is beer and Doritos, and will change her mind at the last minute (it’s common w/in the domestic adoption community… many times, the prospective adoptive couple has already spent a great deal of money and emotions on this teen mom, only to be dropped immediately after the baby is born.) It’s difficult to bond w/ your child when you might get a knock on the door saying, “Oops, I made a mistake… I’m now off drugs… or (fill in the blank) and I want my baby back.” You see, the prevailing attitude in U.S. courts is this: if the parents sign over the baby, and then come back in a few years to claim the baby, the court will probably order the baby back to its bio parents. This is why so many of us who have looked into domestic adoption soon find that the best choice for us is international adoption. And, because Chinese babies who are available for adoption are all abandoned — to walk into an orphange with your infant means you’re instantly thrown in prison, so, the babies are generally left in places where they will be quickly and safely found — my daughter was placed outside the gate to a junior high school –the bio parents WON’T be getting a ticket to America anytime soon. Thanks for letting me get this all out, Janet.

    Hey Hilary, congrats on your successful adoption and yes, I had heard and known that, it just seems to me that there are an odd amount of celebrities who every time you turn around are flaunting new foreign babies. Well, Sharon Stone and Rosie O’Donall & Micheal bought American kids, but I agree with you and don’t harbor any bad feelings for what you were privileged to do. The amount of baby girls in China left to die or put to death because no one wants a baby girl there is reason enough to adopt there if you ask me. I hope you understand what I meant by what I said about the celebrities, like Angelina Jolie running all over the planet to get kids, and Zahara HAS relatives, as does Madonna’s adopted son. THAT”S what I don’t get. Take a child who TRULY NEEDS it!!!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
