    When I was pregnant and after my son was born (he's 16 now) Joan had a show called "Mother's Day" that she hosted and her (then) husband Michael Krauss produced for Lifetime TV. It was really quite good - very informative and down-to-earth. She always had a guest that was an older man - a pediatrician named T. Barry Brazelton. He specialized in child development and was a foundation of our child raising.
    She's also very active as a spokesperson for MADD, and personally I really like the TV show Behind Closed Doors because I know those doors will never be opened to me and she visits some really cool places!
    I wouldn't say I'm a wild fan of Joan's, but I do admire at least the pretty 'normal celebrity-type person she seems to be.
    Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

    But she is not adopting. She is having children via a surrogate mother. And I believe (not possitive tho), that her husband is the bio father.
    Adoption is a wonderful, selfless thing to do. And while there are not a lot of babies, there are SO many older children begging for good, loving homes.

    I would really give her kudos if she were adopting some of these children, but I refrain from kudos for her having enough money to pay someone else to get pregnant for her.

Currently, Lunden hosts and executive produces "Behind Closed Doors with Joan Lunden." Lunden has been allowed access to the inner workings of places few have ever seen, including flying at 65,000 feet in a U2 Reconnaissance aircraft, survival training with Army's Special Forces, the Culinary Institute of America, the private warehouses of the Smithsonian Institution and the elite world of thoroughbred horse racing.
    I read somewhere years ago that she landed the job with GMA, (and subsequently, accomplished all of the above) with an AA degree in a junior college in Sacramento (can't remember the name right now).

    That's quite impressive, IMO.

    All I can say is... WOW! What the hell was Joan wearing?! The Rhinestone Cowgirl, giddy up!

    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    Joan is so mis- cast for this show.

    I really like her as a TV personality, but that's just it, in this show she has NO personality. Plus the lighting is horrible and she always looks washed out.
