Adoption is a powerful testament of love for a child when their own parents have given them up. Adoptions do not only happen with the average-Joe, but with celebrities as well. Below are some of the most famous adoptions by celebrities of all-time.

#1 – Angelina Jolie

Jolie has long been a fan of adoption. Back in 2002, she adopted Rath Vibol, from Cambodia, with her then-husband, Billy Bob Thornton. Later, when Jolie was with Brad Pitt, they adopted Zahara from Ethiopia in 2005. Even though the two celebrities are separated for the time being, they still have custody over these two adopted children.

#2 – Sandra Bullock

Bullock adopted a boy, Louis Bardo when he was 3-months old. She has been nothing but bubbly when introducing him over the years. Currently, Bullock is raising him on her own, after her then-husband was cheating on her. At least she has a perfect adopted child to keep her mind off things.

#3 – Hugh Jackman

In 2000, Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborra Lee-Furness, adopted a boy named Oscar. They adopted again in 2005. This time the adoption was for a girl named Ava. The first adoption was an open adoption, but the second one has been more closed. Both children are of beautiful, mixed descent. Jackman has viewed these adoptions as the happiest days of his life. He even stated that he was crying when the two children were under his roof for the first time. Do we not all wish fathers were like this? Hopefully, this family will stay together, unlike the first two families.
