The girls are at an age that they understand a lot and that is why they have become curious about their biological parents and birth stories.
“They have more questions as they get older. We said to them, this is your story. We don’t have information about your biological fathers, but we do have something about your biological mothers. If you want to talk about it more, you can have as much information as you want. Tell us what you’re comfortable with, “she shared how she and Josh approached the topic.
The actress previously shared through Parent and Child magazine that she’s always wanted to adopt, and especially from Korea!
She explained that “My sister Meg is Korean, my parents adopted her three years before I was born. I wanted my family to be like the one I came from, so I always knew I wanted to adopt from Korea. We’ve also talked about having biological children, but we decided to adopt first. I just wanted to be a mother. ‘
