Finally one morning her friend gave her a call saying that there is someone willing to adopt her daughter. It was none other than Ted. The actor had paid Topel $7,000 for expenses and took the baby home. It tore her apart, but they seemed to be good people, recalls Topel.
But in 2000, Alexis’ biological mother claimed that the letters she wrote to her daughter never reached her.
