The star of the Two and a Half Men and his wife Lisa Joyner are proud parents of a daughter named Daisy, whom they adopted soon after she was born. They are now such adoption advocates that they participated in the organization’s Raise a Child initiative.
“Really good friends have said to me, ‘I don’t know, though. I don’t know what I’m going to get,'” says Joyner. “You kind of don’t know what you’re going to get if you have a biological child. It was a no brainer for me. Adoption is a choice. And it’s a beautiful choice. Family is where you find it.”
Joyner was in foster care herself until she was adopted, and she knew she would one day want to adopt as well. “Families are what they are. You can defy convention,” says Cryer, who also has a son named Charlie from a previous marriage.
