Figure Skater Scott Hamilton Adopts from Haiti
Olympic gold medal figure skater Scott Hamilton and his wife Tracie have recently adopted two children from Haiti. Scott, who was adopted as a baby, and Tracie have long supported charities helping people adopted and began to work with Live Beyond, a non-profit working with a Haitian orphanage after the 2010 earthquake. The Hamiltons, who have two biological children, decided to adopt in 2012 and they brought their children – 11-year-old Evelyne and her 13-year-old brother Jean Paul – home this September.
“They’re beautiful, beautiful children and our hearts are twice the size they were before,” Scott said. “We’re blessed beyond our wildest dreams.”
