Jamie Foxx Cries on TV as He Shares His Adoption Story — “When You’re a Kid You Just Want to be Loved.”

Last month on the Fox gameshow, “Beat Shazam,” host Jamie Foxx had an emotional moment as he reflected on the impact adoption has had on his life.

Contestants Donna and Avery were on the show hoping to win money to put in a college fund for Donna’s daughters who were adopted from Haiti following the 2010 earthquakes.

One of her adopted daughters was present at the show and received a huge applause from the audience.

Touching his heart, Foxx shared his own adoption story saying, “You know what’s amazing? I was adopted at seven months and I’m going to tell you what that means. My grandmother? That’s not actually my biological grandmother. That’s somebody who said, ‘I see something in that little boy that’s very special.'”

He continued, “And she made sure I had every tool that I needed to grow and expand…” At which point he started crying and literally had to walk off the stage.

The crowd started chanting his name and he jokingly ran back on saying “We back, we back, we back!”

He explained he had to get himself together and that he doesn’t like getting emotional on camera. However, he went on, saying, “But what you don’t understand is that when you’re a kid you just want to be loved. My grandmother loved me and thank you for loving that little girl over there and loving all your children.”

Foxx gave Donna a big hug and thanks her for “playing [the game] for other people.”

It’s not every day life is celebrated in our culture, but when it is, we need to rejoice. In a society that values “choice” over human lives, it’s so important to highlight stories of adoption and redemption.

The more we show women adoption is a viable option, the less women will feel the need to resort to abortion. 

Every day, women are pressured into abortion.

Instead, let’s join together to make sure people in unexpected pregnancy situations are supported and loved so they can make life-affirming choices for their children.

We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We aim to create a culture that views “pro-life” as equivalent to having empathy and compassion, providing holistic care (before and beyond pregnancy) and education, and most importantly, choosing to speak and act in love. We are pro-life, pro-love, pro-woman, pro-solution.

Don’t just be part of the movement, be part of the solution, and give today.
