13 Television Characters that are Adopted

Having walked this crazy foster care/adoption road, my eyes have been opened to how adoption is portrayed in media.  And for the most part, it's hard to find healthy adopted characters in film and television.  I want my son to see that adoption isn't a disability.  One can be adopted and functional and ... human.  So I did a little research and came up with a list of 13 Television Characters that are adopted.  Do any of these names ring a bell?

Victor Graham, Parenthood

Clark Kent, Smallville

Buddy the Dinosaur, Dinosaur Train

Natalie Green, Facts of Life

Punky Brewster

Albert Ingalls, Little House on the Prairie

Lily Pritchett-Tucker, Modern Family

Arnold and Willis Jackson, Different Strokes

Claire Bennett, Heroes

Amanda Tannen, Ugly Betty

Joey Donavon, Gimme a Break

Zola, Grey's Anatomy

Henry Mills, Once Upon a Time

Where else are you seeing adoption normalized in television?
