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.
