Get excited! Everyone’s favorite actress, Sandra Bullock (you had me at “While You Were Sleeping, Sandy!) has adopted a 2nd child—a girl!!—and this time, she adopted from foster care. People Magazine debuted their cover with Bullock and her son Louis, 5, and new daughter Laila, 3. Bullock has revealed that Laila is from Louisiana and was in foster care prior to her adoption.

She also says that it was Louis who urged her to adopt another child.“Louis spearheaded this whole journey,” she said. She also acknowledged that bringing Laila into her family was a tenuous process. “I knew she was scared, and all I wanted was for her to know Louis and I weren’t going anywhere.”
Bullock went on to say that she hopes her adoption of Laila will shine a light on all the kids in foster care waiting to be adopted, and so do I! That’s the part of the story that gets me REALLY excited! Thanks Sandra, for being an example and making a difference! God bless your beautiful family!
