 He was adopted by his parents when he was only a week old
 
 His name is the Celtic form for "sea"
 
 His middle name is in honor of his maternal grandfather 
 
 His parents divorced when he was younger and he quickly became the center of a bitter custody battle 
 
 The judge in the custody hearing criticized Stone for overreacting to Roan's health issues, "refus[ing] to participate in the counseling . . . designed entirely to help her son" and being unwilling to make changes in her lifestyle to accommodate Roan's needs—even once requesting that a meeting with Roan's teachers and doctors be taped instead of attending herself

Quotes:

"I had taken a couple of years off to become a mother and for health reasons — more time than I had planned. I was getting more used to hearing 'Mom, Mom' than 'Sharon, Sharon!'" - Sharon on taking a break from work after she adopted Roan.

"She’s a great mama,” says Sharon’s sister Kelly, 49. “I was there the other day when they were going to bed and they were so cute. I said, ‘I don’t know how you do it.’ I always thought that I would want to be the mom, and I just think now, she’s such a good mom, and I could never do it.” - Sharon's sister Kelly on Sharon's mothering abilities.
