Brooke Smith Adopts Baby Girl From Africa

by at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy actress Brooke Smith has adopted a baby girl from Ethiopia, her rep confirmed to People magazine.

It is the second daughter for Smith, 40, who plays Dr. Erica Hahn on the hit medical drama, and who already has a five-year-old daughter, Fanny, with her cinematographer husband Stephen Lubensky.

Smith, Brooke

Brooke Smith, who is best known for her role in Silence of the Lambs before Grey's Anatomy, had been considering adopting since October.

"You know, why not?" Smith said, adding that she and Lubensky have traveled to Africa several times, and filmed a documentary on conservationists in Zimbabwe together.

"We still might end up there some time," she said.

Nice to see some news on here about some "other" cast members. I have to say, she's not my favorite character, but she's "OK". The thing I find most distracting about her, though, is her teeth (esp. the bottoms).................why didn't she ever have them straightened????

wow.
way to jump on that bandwagon.
Still Congrats to Brooke.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
