“We still wanted to adopt. That was our plan: we’ll have two and we’ll adopt one. Anyway we didn’t have children. We tried and that was tough. But the moment Oscar arrived, it just felt like he was always meant to come that way. I forget he’s adopted; he’s just my son.” – Hugh on adoption.
“My boy has just started school. I dropped him off and watched him. He walked into the playground. He looked around, and I could see that no one was running to him, and so he just walked over to the swings and started swinging on his own. So I went in and said ‘Hey, let’s play a game!’” – Hugh on his son.
