Comedienne Sarah Silverman says she would rather adopt than have children of her own. Speaking in a recently aired interview on The Conversation with Amanda De Cadenet – the 41-year-old admits she doesn’t want to pass on her depression to a natural born son or daughter.
She said, “I don’t want kids. I’d love to adopt someday and I have a lot of adoption in my family… I know that I have this depression and that it’s in my family. Every family has their stuff but, for me, I just don’t feel strong enough to see that in a child.”
She also shares that her gynecologist gives her a hard time on freezing her eggs.
The Bob’s Burgers star also jokes, “I haven’t frozen my eggs and what are the chances my womb isn’t polluted at this point? I do believe in adoption… I watched my oldest niece be born… (and) I passed out… All I could think was, ‘Oh my God, we are animals’.”
Silverman goes on more about adoption.
We live in Los Angeles, where everybody is like, ‘Don’t get your dog from a breeder, get your dog from a shelter…’ and I agree, but don’t get your people from a breeder. There are human puppies in shelters and it’s odd that that never seems to be a connection that people make.”
“If you’re not OK with yourself… it’s easier to love a dog than a person in need because you don’t see all the things you hate about yourself reflected back in the eyes of a dog. If Africa was full of springer spaniels dying of Aids and starvation we’d probably take care of it in a day.”
