TV parents have been known to open up their homes to children needing families and we've opened our hearts up to these adorable kids as well.
ABC's Emmy-winning "Modern Family," returning for its second season on Wednesday, Sept. 22 features Lily, the wide-eyed Vietnamese-born daughter of Mitch and Cam.
In honor of Lily and other children who've been hand-picked for love, we present the most memorable adopted characters on the small screen.
