Jennifer Lopez Considering Adoption?

May 07, 2012 10:00 AM by Shayla Perry

Things are really heating up between FOX‘s American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez and her beau, Casper Smart, with friends revealing that the pop star is already talking about marriage. But is J. Lo ready to have more kids, too? And is she considering adoption?

“I don’t know,” Lopez tells Access Hollywood‘s Shaun Robinson. “Before this movie, it wasn’t something that had occurred to me. But after this movie, yes, I could see myself definitely doing it and being open to it for sure,” the What To Expect When You’re Expecting star continues. “You know what I mean? Whereas, before I never thought about it really.”

In the movie, which hits theaters May 18th, Lopez’s character and her significant other go through many ups and downs throughout the adoption process, but it was working with the twins who played her adopted child in the film that really opened Jennifer’s eyes — and her heart.

“It was funny, the adoption thing,” says Jennifer. “When I held the baby for the first time — our baby in the movie, and they were twins, they were two little twin Ethiopian boys, who, their parents went through a similar thing, and actually have adopted before, and got to talk to them a lot about it too. But when you hold that baby, you can really see how easy it is to just love another child that is not yours. Really, such a simple thing.”

    I think that is wonderful that Jennifer is concerning adoption. But do the Adoptive parents (AP) think real hard on the heartache a Birthmother goes through. It’s been 23 years since I have held my daughter which I don’t ever seeing this ever happening. If you have and open adoption where you can physically hold her or him and get to know her or him keep in on going. I can talk to my daughter on Facebook but I don’t really know my limitation of what I can say. For she never responds first to me I feel like its a have to respond to me just to be polite. I want a relationship with her and be part of her life. I have asked her where is my boundaries and she never responds back to me. She is pushing me away for I am going to be a like a lot of birthmother who just close door. For the pain is so hard to bare. I hope anyone in the adoption triangle reads this and to understand all three parties are in pain but the one that is in the most pain is the birthmother. For she is the one who carried that baby and felt it move in side of her and the pain in baring that child life. She may or may not have held the baby also, I did for three days. I had other options Abortion or keeping the baby was the other way to go but sacrificing my life for her baby to have a two parent home. AP’S don’t be afraid to share your baby that you are holding every day. Your baby’s missing their birthmother also. Especially in the beginning of life in this world. Always remember that little gift of sharing a part of your baby life with their birthmother is a life time treasure!!!! I know the AP’s think no problem in this but then after they get the baby the cut the birthmother off. I was bless for my AP responded to me fast to my letters. I wish I had an open adoption instead of a semi. Semi is ok but the line of communication with the child is harder in the future. Always remember that life time treasure means alot to the birthmother also. Don’t forget about her.
