Very nice! Thanks for sharing. It surprises me, though, given just how ridiculously unrealistic the entire adoption story line on Grey's Anatomy was. You'd think someone who's BTDT wouldn't have portrayed the journey as so seamless and easy (unless you decide to break up your marriage in the process, which many people just don't). It just made me cringe to think how easy people think it was for us based on the show.

I have to admit I'm not much of a TV person so I haven't seen the show (probably the only person in America bag.gif). I'd be curious if others agree with you for the sake of discussion! It seems that often actors have to go along with something stupid because the producer thinks it will "sell" better. And they do seem to feed Americans a lot of bad TV!

 

I just thought she gave a very sensitive portrayal here.
