Katherine Heigl Talks Adopting Adalaide with Jay Leno

Katherine Heigl waves while making an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday (December 20) in Burbank, Calif.

The 34-year-old actress talked about the process of adopting her daughter Adalaide.

“This was fascinating because we started the adoption process again and we thought we were gonna adopt internationally. It’s a pretty long process. It can take years,” Katherine said (via Access Hollywood).

“And then we started exploring because we had heard that Korea had gotten very hard to adopt from, and China had a very, very long waiting list and I was like (taps wrist), any day now,” Katherine added. “And so we started exploring the idea of domestic adoption – just exploring – and then my lawyer called and said, ‘There’s a birth mother and she’s due in four weeks and she’s all yours if you want her.’”

Also pictured: Katherine heading to a family Christmas party that afternoon in Los Feliz, Calif.

FYI: Katherine is wearing a Randi Rham dress, Kimberly McDonald earrings, Vram at Gray Gallery bangles and ring, and Rene Caovilla shoes.
