In Prevention magazine, Jillian Michaels opens up about adopting internationally and the struggles she’s encountered along the way.
On adopting internationally: “I honestly don’t know how somebody without money and help could ever get this done. It’s a full-time job. If I called the girls down here to where we’re sitting, they would run you through how many times the notary has been here this week….I regret saying this now, but I think for anyone pursuing this [I’d advise them] to explore foster care in this country. In the US, you get your referral, you bring the kid home. They’re already American citizens. I don’t want to tell people to adopt internationally – but I’ve learned that you’ve got to have tremendous patience and financial resources because it’s going to cost a lot of money. If you don’t have those two things, go domestic.”
