Meg Ryan is set to join Hollywood's adoptive mothers after reportedly signing up to play mother to a Chinese baby.
The actress will take charge of a Chinese baby later today (20JAN06), according to America's OK! celebrity magazine.
Sources claim the WHEN HARRY MET SALLY star has spent months chasing her dream of becoming a mum for the second time and heard the news she had been approved late last year (05).
The adoption is scheduled to take place at an American consulate in China, according to OK! sources.
An insider tells the publication, "The consulate will formalise the adoption and grant Meg's new daughter a visa and a social security number.
"They will probably be flying back to the US immediately after the process is complete."
Ryan has a teenage son, JACK, by former husband Dennis Quaid.
