November is National Adoption Month, and Hollywood is shining a spotlight on the important cause.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may be the poster family for adoption, but it's Hugh Jackman—father of two adopted children himself—who's putting things into perspective.
"I'm working with Americans to create an international campaign to shine a light on the fact that there are 153 million orphans in the world," the actor recently said. "If that were a country, it would be the ninth-largest in the world, just ahead of Russia."
November is National Adoption month and a time to raise awareness about the more than 100,000 kids who are waiting to be adopted in the United States alone.
In celebration of all those who have opened their homes by adopting, we are looking at 10 high-profile celebrity adoptive parents. VIEW THE GALLERY: 10 Adoptions In Hollywood
