According to the Internet lists of famous adoptees and adoptive parents published by the NAIC, Danson is both an adoptee and an adoptive parent. But the North American Council on Adoptable Children's defunct list at http://www.cyfc.umn.edu/Adoptinfo/adoptionawareness.html included him only under their heading of famous adopters. He is not listed under either heading at http://www.adoption-isit4u.aoci.org/pages/info_7.html from The Adoption Option Committee of Minnesota. I have been unable to find independent confirmation of him as an adoptee, but http://us.imdb.com/AName?Danson,+Ted does confirm him as the adoptive parent, with his second wife, Casey Coates, of a daughter.
