Model’s Special Inspiration for Kids
Brooklyn Decker is a model who expressed interest in adopting a child with physical/mental challenges. Her aunt is a part of the Special Olympics and has a mental challenge. Decker made these remarks in an interview with People magazine.
“I want to adopt a child or a baby with an intellectual disability one day,” Decker stated. “Unfortunately a lot of kids with intellectual disabilities are given up for adoption when they’re born ’cause it’s a lot for a family.”
Decker is married to tennis player Andy Roddick. They were married in 2009 and have no immediate goals to start to have children. However, she does want to adopt a variety of kids that have physical/mental challenges and are able-bodied.
Decker appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated. She also stars in the movie “Battleship.” This movie will be in theaters summer 2012.
