Imagine everyone's surprise (or shock) this morning to the news that Sandra Bullock adopted a baby boy.
I actually cried when I saw the People cover, I was so excited for her.
I know, I know, I am talking about her like I know her but it says something about her character that she chose to not introduce him to the world during the Oscar hoopla. Can you imagine what the paparrazzi craziness would have been like if they knew about the baby? It wasn't enough that they were stalking her but if they knew about the baby, it would have been madness with everyone trying to get the first shot of baby Louis.
As a single mom who adopted on my own, I want to welcome her to the club. Given her relationship with Jesse James' children, I am sure she will be a great mother.
And to her friends who kept her secret, they really should be commended. The little boy, Louis will not only have a great mom who is interested in protecting him but Ms. Bullock, obviously has a network of supportive friends and family who are there for her and her baby boy.
Mazel tov and Congratulations.
