Tim Tebow wants a big family — of global proportions.
The former NFL quarterback and now minor league baseball player told People magazine at the end of last week that he wants to adopt children “so badly.”
But he doesn’t want to adopt just one child.
“You know what I think would be awesome? If I could adopt a kid from every continent,” he told People magazine. “I think that would be a pretty cool goal. I want to sit around the dinner table every night and see kids from Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, right here in the States. How cool would that be? It’s one of my favorite things to dream about."
Tebow, who is currently single, said he hopes his future wife accepts this dream.
More importantly, he said he hopes his future wife is “someone who loves Jesus and loves people. Someone who makes me want to be a better person for her. And she has to want kids, and has to want to adopt. That’s a requirement.”
A big multicultural family with religious beliefs means the world to him, he told People magazine.
“I think when you look at God’s family, it’s not about color,” he told People magazine. “Love knows no color. I want my kids to grow up with an appreciation for every single person, no matter what they look like. That’s what unity looks like to me: knowing that you can love people who aren’t the same as you are. I want to teach that message to my kids; I want them to live it.”
