Deborra-Lee Furness is more than the actress wife of Hugh Jackman — she’s a philanthropic woman deeply invested in adoption rights and children’s well-being. Recently, she’s been promoting National Adoption Awareness Week to get the word out on such a disenfranchised act in Australia: adoption. You can check out a few interviews with her at Herald Sun, The Age, and Hope 103.2 (audio).
On November 12th, she and husband Hugh Jackman attended a special screening for The Life of Timothy Green to help kick off Adoption Awareness Week. She talks a little about this particular film of wanting a child in the above audio interview, for those interested. Pictures from the night have been added to the gallery.
