Sheryl Crow Shielded Adopted Sons From Magazine

'It would be extremely hard for a mother to watch the child she gave away... grow up in the magazines,' the singer reasoned why she picked a closed adoption.
Sheryl Crow

asked officials to keep the details of her adoption bids secret - because she didn't want her sons' biological mothers to see their kids in the press. The "All I Wanna Do" hitmaker decided to adopt a child following the breakdown of her relationship with cyclist in 2006, and she welcomed little Wyatt into her life a year later. She went on to adopt a second son, Levi James, earlier this year.

And the star had one demand for adoption officials when they were filing her request for a child - she wanted her case to be closed to the public to save the boys' real parents any more heartache. She tells Britain's Guardian, "I said I would take whichever baby I was supposed to have. My philosophy was that souls find each other; you don't end up with the wrong child."

"(But I wanted a closed case). It would be extremely hard for a mother to watch the child she gave away... grow up in the magazines."
