This week Denise Richards adopted a baby girl she named Eloise Joni to join her and her two daughters (whose fathers is the infamous Charlie Sheen).

One thing that instinctively comes to many a people’s mind is…”but she’s single!” It’s no reflection on the power of the single mom and their capabilities of raising a child without a man in the house. It’s more a question of the how.

Many families try very hard to adopt a child and feel like they have to fit all the criteria of a “traditional” family, but they still struggle to get anyone to hand off a baby to them. It could be their connections, their money or maybe they just are ideal candidates for being adoptive moms. Regardless, Denise Richards joins a star studded group of ladies who adopted kids when they were single.
