Megastar Sharon Cuneta relates that adopted son Miguel has given their family much joy.
Sharon Cuneta, who adopted a baby boy named Miguel last year, shared that she is open to the idea of adopting again, but added that she also has to consider the responsibilities that comes with it. “I’d love to [adopt again]. Pero
