There are so many adoption advocates out there speaking on behalf of children in need throughout the world. Some of those advocates are everyday people and some are celebrities that have their own platforms that allow their voices to be heard. One such celebrity advocate who has been touched by adoption is, Lindsay Price. Lindsay Price is well known for playing roles on Lipstick Jungle, Beverly Hills 90210, as well as on the soaps All My Children and The Bold and the Beautiful and she has worked to advocate for children in need of homes and adoption.
Lindsay Price’s mother was a South Korean orphan during the Korean war, who was abandoned by her birth mother. Both Lindsay’s mother and her mother’s brother were adopted by the American couple. Lindsay’s grandparents were able give her mother a chance to be loved, grow up in a family and to offer her a future. Lindsay is an advocate for adoption because she has seen firsthand that it changes the lives of children in need of families. It is an opportunity for a child to have a family, a future and to know that they are loved.
Lindsay donates her time and efforts to work with adoptive families to help them raise money towards their adoption fees. She met Hank Fortener, who is the founder and CEO of Adopt Together, and told him that whatever she can do to help his foundation she is in!
