In a Facebook post that has since been made unavailable, Sandra Bullock addressed those who have been commenting on her and her adopted son, Louis Bardo Bullock. Bullock adopted Louis in 2010 and added her then three-year-old daughter, Laila, to her family in 2015.
As reported by scarymommy.com, Bullock wrote: “I hold my son in my arms and thank God for bringing him to me. If the standard route for creating a family had worked for me, I wouldn’t have met this child. I needed to know him. I needed to be his mother. I know now why all those events happened. Or didn’t happen. So I could meet this little boy. He is, in every way, my son.”
She continued, “I enjoy Motherhood now. If all of a sudden someone said, ‘You have five more kids,’ I’d be totally OK with it.”
“So guys Share this if you love your children who are very lucky to have you and to have a beautiful home. Let’s hope that Everybody reads this, especially those who consider adoption taboo and are against it. It’s perfectly fine to adopt. It is a gift of Life. The desire of your heart can give a child a home,” she concluded.
Once Bullock’s story was posted to the scary mommy Facebook page, dozens of people joined in the comments section to share their thoughts on why they welcome adoption and why people should be more supportive.
Some of the posts came from people who have adopted children themselves and others came from those who have been adopted. Those who shared their stories were in agreement that adopting a child doesn’t make you any less of a parent or a relative. Many showed pictures of them and their families, stemming from having adopted children to those who have step-children.
The post has garnered over 5,000 likes and has been shared over 600 times to date.
