Bethenny Frankel is known for getting things done; however even she has her issues with the system.
Bethenny is a wonderful mom to her only daughter Brynn and has recently revealed that she has tried to expand her family through adoption; however keeps running into road blocks. Speaking to People Magazine the B revealed that she was moved by a People Instagram post regarding a boy who was stuck in the foster care system and whose only wish was to find a family. Apparently he was met with over 5,000 adoption applications, with Bethenny expressing interest as well. At the time, Bethenny stated: “I will adopt him” she wrote, adding, “Bryn said ‘momma you should adopt him.’ “
Bethenny expanded on it, stating: “The thing that surprises people is that once they get into the system, it is hard to get them out,” wrote Frankel. “Growing up, we always heard that everyone wants a baby and not an older kid. I tried a while back to adopt a 3-year-old and it was a harder process than a newborn. If it’s like other family law systems, it’s not as easy as the movie[s] make it.”
This isn’t the first time that Bethenny expressed helping children in need as she previously said that she was “definitely serious” about adopting a 5-year-old girl who was abandoned at a New York bus terminal. At the time, she tweeted an article about the little girl, writing, “How do I adopt this child?”
I can definitely see Bethenny adopting a child so if this is her dream – keep going! She definitely has the money and the resources to it, which is a major road block for most people.
