(CNN)Michael Fishman is sharing his story of loss and grief in an attempt to help others.

Fishman, who originated the role of DJ Conner on "Roseanne" and continued it on "The Conners," was in the process of adopting Larry whom he met through Larry's older sister after she asked Fishman to be her dad.

The actor, who also shares two children with his ex-wife Jennifer Briner, said Larry had previously been in foster care when he came into Fishman's life.

"I feel like I came to Larry maybe later than I wish I could," Fishman said of the teen.

Fishman said his son "tried drugs that turned out to be bad drugs that multiple people had a very serious reaction. "

"A couple years ago, I probably would have never shared this, to be honest with you," Fishman said.
