Mexican actress and singer Laura Flores, 44, is preparing to welcome a third child into her family in the very near future. The baby — who will join Laura’s other two children Maria, 9, and Patricio, 2 — is the result of a promise the actress made to herself over two years ago, when she first found out she was pregnant with her son. Due to legal issues, Laura is under strict protocol and is unable to reveal any further information about her child, but does confirm that she has already had the chance to meet her son or daughter.
I can’t talk about the sex of the little one, I’ve already met [him or her], but I can’t give any more details because I have precise instructions.
Calling adoption a "process that requires a lot of patience" and saying that it is much more than "hang up the phone, call this person, [and] tell them to arrange it for you," Laura opened her eyes to the idea of adopting after seeing the reality of life at an orphanage. While that was the experience which led Laura to adoption, she tells people that each situation is different and feels that "the reasons that lead you to adoption aren’t important."
Yes, it’s being thankful for life because I — in my house — it’s not like I can’t have kids; while not being able to have children and you’re going to adopt counts too, that’s marvelous. That to me is loving life.
