Sandra Bullock Defines Traditional Family And Shares Her Insights About Adoption
Sandra Bullock opens her heart once again to the opportunity of having a bigger family. She has adopted an adorable girl from the foster care. Back in 2010, she had also adopted a child who is now at the age of 5. Recently, she shares her insights about family and adoption in an interview.
According to People Magazine, she gives a new definition for traditional family and explains, “I have no idea what a ‘traditional family’ looks like anymore. If a traditional home is one that is filled with lots of love and poop jokes, no sleep, schedule books filled with more kids’ social events than adults’ and lots of yelling over who touched who first … then I have a very traditional family.”
When it comes to adoption, she sees this as an opportunity of priceless joy. Her 5-yr-old Louis and 3 ½-yr-old Laila may not see again their biological parents but with the unconditional love and care from Bullock, they will definitely feel and experience having a real family.
“In this lifetime we are lucky, because we can make the family that makes us happiest. And sometimes you just need to go out and find it and bring it home!” Bullock says.
Louis came from New Orleans and Laila was adopted from Louisiana. Her children immediately bonded when she took her from the foster care. “Louis spearheaded this whole journey. I knew [Laila] was scared, and all I wanted was for her to know Louis and I weren’t going anywhere. My family is blended and diverse, nutty, and loving and understanding . . . That’s a family.” Bullock said in another interview as reported by Vanity Fair.
For now, Sandra Bullock is happy in her current relationship with photographer Bryan Randall. We hope their family will have a prosperous and happy life for all the years to come.
