“I became EVP, CAO and general counsel, and started serving on outside boards. Even though I was over 40 then, just a year and a half later I adopted almost-4-yearold, 27-pound Adrian from a Romanian orphanage. Adrian is now 28 and doing well. My little granddaugh­ters adore their uncle!” —JoAnne

“Having a working mom absolutely impacted my decision to be a working mom myself. I was always, and still am, proud of her and wanted to be like her.
