Real Housewives' Bethenny Frankel Offers to Adopt Viral 9-Year-Old, Reveals She Tried to Adopt Once Before

Real Housewives of New York‘s Bethenny Frankel saw a post on People magazine’s Instagram account about a nine-year-old boy who went viral after a heartbreaking interview.

The boy, Jordan, is currently in Oklahoma and was asked if he had three wishes, they would be, “To have a family, and family, family. Those are the only wishes I have. I would just like to have a family to call mom and dad, or just mom, or just dad.”

Jordan has now received over 5,000 submissions for his adoption, and one of the people offering to adopt him is Bethenny.

“I will adopt him,” she wrote, adding, “[Daughter] Bryn said ‘momma you should adopt him.’”

She also added, “The thing that surprises people is that once they get into the system, it is hard to get them out. Growing up, we always heard that everyone wants a baby and not an older kid. I tried a while back to adopt a 3-year-old and it was a harder process than a newborn. If it’s like other family law systems, it’s not as easy as the movie[s] make it.”

Bethenny has been doing some amazing work with her BStrong foundation lately.
