Kristin Chenoweth has been a mainstay on both the stage and the big screen for almost 30 years.
She’s now written a book for youngsters about adopting a dog, which encouraged her to talk about her own adoption.
The 53-year-old Oklahoma native earned a Tony Award for her role as Sally Brown in “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and was nominated for her role as Glinda in the musical “Wicked.”
She received her big break while helping a buddy relocate in New York. After finishing her master’s degree, she was awarded a scholarship at Philadelphia’s Academy of Vocal Arts, but while in New York, she auditioned for the musical “Animal Crackers” and was cast as Arabella Rittenhouse.
Kristin has subsequently had a successful television profession, featuring in The West Wing and receiving a Primetime Emmy Award for her performance in the comedic drama Pushing Daisies. She’s even acted in films like Bewitched and Pink Panther.
She’s now turned her brilliant hand to books, and she presented her new book “What Will I Do with My Love Today?” alongside disclosing the heartwarming story of her adoption, stating she was “rescued.”
Her dad is constantly like, man, did they win the lotto? and she is like, No, she won the lottery, she explained.
Kristin, who was adopted by her parents Junie and Jerry when she was five days old, recounted how they discussed adoption when she was a kid.
There was never any surprise, she explained. “They constantly said, the lady who was carrying her couldn’t take care of her the manner she wanted to, and she loved her so much.
Even though my birthday was on Friday, growing up we always celebrated on the 29th! My “gotcha day.” The day my parents adopted me and took me home 💗🎈 So, today, I send my love and eternal gratitude to my mom & dad!! pic.twitter.com/Fg8TYF0qXI— Kristin Chenoweth (@KChenoweth) July 30, 2020
This is what her mother said, she said, She gave her life, but they get to give her life.
She also read an extract from her book about adopting a dog, which Kristin claims she did and credits with changing her life.
“Extra love in your heart and your home is waiting for somebody who is all alone” she read.
Adoption implies family, and family is forever, despite how life has brought them together. They always had a lot of affection in their family, but now they have much more thanks to Thunder pup.
Kristin, who was a singing adviser with Team Ariana on the hit TV show The Voice last year, also suggested that she might not be opposed to adopting herself.
Kristin got engaged to country music guitarist Josh Bryant in October 2021.
Her kind approach to adoption and how it should be perceived has undoubtedly helped numerous others come to grips with it. I hope she keeps talking about her own wonderful experience.
