Lauren Holly discusses motherhood and adoption

74197773_cbbLauren Holly, 43, has accomplished many things in her life but what does she consider her greatest achievement? She says,

I think I’m a very good mother.

The NCIS actress and her investment banker husband, Francis Greco, having adopted their three boys, Alexander, 6, George, 4, and Henry, 3, knew that it was the perfect way to grow their family.  Lauren decided from a young age that adoption would be part of her future.  She states,

It was just horrible to me when I realized when I was a little girl that somebody could have no family, and I made a decision that no matter what I was going to adopt a child.

The couple have no plans to have anymore children, biological or not.

I don’t need my own because I have three amazing children. I would be almost afraid at what I would create in comparison.

I love that she doesn’t feel the need to have a biological child. Those are her children.

I hate when children are listed as adopted children, like it somehow lessens them. I hope that they will just be called her children, not her adopted children.

I remember hearing back when she was with jim carrery she tried to have bio children, but it didn’t happen. I think she is so pretty and seems sweet, she keeps her kids out of the spotlight a lot too, but the times I have seen the boys they are adorable.

I think this time they are listed as adopted children beacuse the interview is about her adoptions.

I also like that she uses “[children of] my own”. It shows that there is nothing wrong with that phrase as we all know what she means and that there is no need to overreact to people using that phrase.

It’s funny when she’s going on about kids having no family – she adopted white newborns didn’t she? Hardly difficult to find families for them. That might have made sense if she’d adopted older kids or special needs kids. But she is one of my favourite actresses and she certainly seems to be doing a good job both personally and professionally. 🙂

Tary: How do you know her children aren’t special needs children. A lot of children look healthy but aren’t. For instance, I used to work as a nanny for a child who have 5 different health problems, but there was no way to know just by looking at him. It’s not always easy to tell if a child has special needs just by looking at them.

“biology doesn’t make a parent, love does” 🙂
