Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness have spoken openly of their adoptions of Oscar and Ava, saying:
Mixed-race babies have such a hard time being adopted that Deb and I checked off that box specifically when we were filling out our forms. Our lawyer brought the form back to us and said, "This is not the time to be politically correct. Are you sure this is what you want?" We were definite about it. Adoption is about taking a baby into your home — and your heart. It's the best thing we've ever done.
