Rosie O’Donnell Disappointed by Birth Mother’s Public Story

TV star Rosie O’Donnell has expressed her disappointment after the birth mother of her adopted daughter issued a public plea for contact with the girl. The actress and TV personality is a mother to five children, including Chelsea, now 17, who was adopted as a baby in the 1990s. Chelsea was given up for adoption at two months old by Deanna Micoley, who was battling a drug problem at the time, and now Micoley has reached out to O’Donnell asking for contact with the teenager.
