When something disappointing happened, my mother would remind me not to let that become my focus. There's still so much to be grateful for.
A lot of children don't find forever homes because they're on that special-needs list, even if it's because of something as simple as her mother smoked cigarettes for a month, not knowing she was pregnant.
My mother is a realist, and she's had biological and adoptive children, and she said it's no different: No matter what, they're putting a stranger into your arms. You don't know them yet.
I just ultimately wanted to be a mother. I love children.
My mother often says that she could never have done it if I had been the youngest, if she had other small children she had to cart around New York City for my auditions and go-sees (modeling auditions) and stuff.
If I spread myself too thin, I'm not a good actor, I'm not a good mother, and I'm just really high-strung - and everybody hates me.
I am a better mother for having something in my life and not just my children.
My mother is a great source of advice and wisdom and consolation for me.
