  • How cool is this, more athletes should take a cue from Hamels and his lovely wife Heidi. He makes great money and is choosing to do something good and compassionate with it. My wife has an uncle who's wife was never able to have children of her own. He owned gas stations in NY and is an extremely wealthy man, but do you think they chose to adopt and give an orphaned child a chance in life...No!! they did not, and shame on them for that. Karma will eventually take care of them. It will also bless Cole and Heidi.
  • great move and more athletes should get invloved but why go so far. i don't uderstand when these folks that are the so called elite the celebs they have to go 10,000 miles to adopt. if the adoption process is so hard here then they should use there influence to make some changes to make it easier to adopt american children. every child world wide needs a home and to be loved but lets clean up some things that maybe wrong here with the process.
