Holly Madison: I’m Planning To Adopt

Playboy model Holly Madison, former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner, has some exciting news!

“I’ve started the adoption process … I really want to be a mommy,” Holly, 33, tells In Touch. Holly, who admits she’s already planning nursery themes, says adoption mentoring service Hold My Hand is helping her in the lengthy process to secure a child from either Africa or South Korea.

Holly says that her busy schedule of events and theater roles is the main reason she doesn’t have a bundle of joy just yet.

“I love performing in the theater, and you can’t really do that when you’re pregnant,” the former Girl Next Door star says.

  1. I think she’ll make a great Mom. But I wish she and everybody else in Hollywood would realize that there’s children in OUR country who need a loving home.

    • Again? A child is a child, no matter where he/she’s from! Geez, we’re all citizens of the world! And believe it or not, orphans tend to have it much worse in poor countries than in the US!

    • It’s a lot harder & more expensive to adopt in the U.S., at least that’s the experience that many of my friends have had during the adoption process. I think the U.S. needs to make the process more streamlined and less tedious. That would encourage more families to stick with the process in our country.

    • The US foster system has a goal and that is to get the foster children back with their parents and/or other family members. It’s about rehabilitating the family. There a FAR less adoptable children in the US than you think. Only about 5%-10% are available for adoption and most of the time those children are older and have been through so much that would need super special people to raise him/her. If you want an infant it will take YEARS to get one. Most the adoptions that happen, here, in “OUR country”, are through private agencies…not the foster care system.

      My two kids were adopted from another country. I didn’t even need to think twice about making that decision. I have a friend who has two kids(bio brothers) through the foster care system. She has raised them since they were babies and they are 5 and 7 now. The birth mom will not sign them over…she refuses and if things don’t go her way she threatens to take them back. She hasn’t seen them since they were 2 and newborn and has no interest in seeing them. The birth mom has had two more children, since, and they are also in foster care and she is doing the same thing to the foster parents in that situation, too.

      Kids are not pawns in a game. There are over 160 million orphans world-wide. How many of them live under your roof?

  2. Sadly, we take kids from people who cannot afford to keep them. It is selfish really, instead of supporting the true parents in raising them.

    • Don’t worry…UNICEF is doing a great job of closing down adoptions all over the world by saying they are going to promote local adoptions and also help the birthmother/family raise the children in their own culture. Guess where those kids end up? Dumpsters, orphanages, huffing paint, prostituting, living in landfills, etc. Where is UNICEF now? If UNICEF tries to promote this then they need to stick to it and support the countries that they have promised to support. As selfish as it is, I’m glad my two kids are here and not in the country they were born in which now(after UNICEF took over and closed adoptions down) have the highest rate of infant and child mortality in the world. If they live past 1 then they are highly likely to not make it past 5.

    • This is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard. If anything, birth parents are given far too many chances with their children, even when they continue to abuse them verbally, sexually and physically, and just be overall horrific parents.
