RIP Jane Russell, Charity Work For Orphans Remembered

Former pin-up and famed movie star Jane Russell, has sadly passed away at the age of 89. The iconic sex symbol of the 1940s and 1950s appeared alongside Marilyn Monroe in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” and was most known for her ‘big bust’ and ‘full figure.’

After an abortion procedure left Russell unable to bear children of her own, she decided to adopt. She adopted a baby girl, who was born on her (Russell’s) birthday, and wanted the girl to have an older brother. However, with the way adoption proceedings were handled in America at the time, agencies only allowed the adoption of babies, and in addition to that, she was told she’d have to wait 2 to 3 years — which she refused to do.

She stated, “So I had to start looking at other countries, and it was in looking for children that I saw what a mess it all was, and how many children there were that desperately needed a home, and a mom, and a dad, and so we started WAIF [World Adoption International Fund].”

That was back in 1955, and the charitable organization not only helped over 50,000 foreign-born children be adopted by US citizens, but pioneered the movement for the adoption of foreign children. You’re welcome, Angelina Jolie.

And hats off to you, Miss Russell.
