12 Stars Who Gave Up Their Children For Adoption


3. Patti Smith

Singer, songwriter, poet and visual artist, famous Patti Smith published her memoir called “Just Kids” in 2010, and revealed that she actually gave her child for adoption when she was rather young.

Patti admitted she was barely out of her teenage years (indeed just a kid), when she learned she was pregnant and had put a child up for adoption.

Young Patti was clearly devastated with the whole unfortunate situation and it was everything but an easy decision. In her book she wrote: “For a brief moment I felt as if I might die. Though I never questioned my decision to give my child up for adoption, I learned that to give life and walk away was not so easy.”
