Numerous celebrities have adopted children, providing them with a home, love and opportunities.
Mary-Louise Parker adopted Caroline from Africa stating that all children should be loved. Hugh Jackman even requested for mixed-race babies, saying “Adoption is about taking a baby into your home — and your heart. It’s the best thing we’ve ever done.”
Sandra Bullock now has a 3-year-old daughter. In her remarks about family, she enthusiastically explains:
“My family is blended and diverse, nutty, and loving and understanding,”, “That’s a family.”
Yahoo covered the reveal Bullock gave to People magazine on Wednesday about her adoption of a 3 year old girl. News of Laila (prounounced Lila), the second child in the family surfaced months ago when the actress was seen with the toddler.
This caused some problems for the Oscar winner, who promised to protect her daughter from the media.
Bullock told People that, “Unbeknownst to me, a photographer had followed us and taken a photo of us in line,” and “a photo of her was being shopped around for sale to every outlet around the world.”
“I had promised and legally agreed to protect her from something like this, and here I was chasing down lawyers – having them, begging them to keep her safe.”
That was but a sign of the love that Bullock shows for Laila. She revealed that, “When I look at Laila, there’s no doubt in my mind that she was supposed to be here”. She does not neglect Louis, adding on that “I can tell you absolutely, the exact right children came to me at the exact right time.”
