Edie Falco’s Dog Inspired Her to Adopt

"She made me realize I wanted to adopt children,” the actress says.

Actress Edie Falco found inspiration to adopt children Anderson, 4, and Macy, 1, in an unlikely place: her dog.

“I have this dog named Marley, and it is a kind of love I had never known,” the single mom told Parade. “I have a hard time believing Marley did not come from my body. I know that sounds insane, but I feel that connected to her. She made me realize I wanted to adopt children,” she says.

The “Nurse Jackie” star says she didn’t think twice about having a biological child. “I’m just not one of those people who thought having biological children was that important,” she says. “To me it was more about wanting to raise a child.”

Falco says she would like to find similar contentment in her love life.

“If I could only find a boyfriend for whom I could buy a can of food and clean up after on the street, I’d be set,” Falco adds, laughing. “Maybe I should put that ad on Match.com.”

“Nurse Jackie” appears on Showtime.

I always loved her on "The Sopranos" and it's great to have her back with "Nurse Jackie." I'm glad she has a great dog and two great kids! Now if she could just find someone to share it all with...any volunteers?
