Sandra Bullock's Stereotypes

Decent Essays
Sandra Bullock stars on the cover of People magazine. She has confirmed that she added a daughter named Laila to her family after months of rumors.
“When I look at Laila, there’s no doubt in my mind that she was supposed to be here,” the 51-year-old star said in an interview with People magazine. “I can tell you absolutely, the exact right children came to me at the exact right time.”
Laila is a three-year-old adorable girl from the Louisiana foster care system. She had been living with Sandra and 5-year-old son Louis, who she adopted in 2010, for some time before her placement was finalized.
“I knew she was scared, and all I wanted was for her to know Louis and I weren’t going anywhere,” Sandra added. She says her daughter has brought a lot of “pink and glitter in the house mixed with Legos and Batmans.”

In her interview, she confessed that she knew she was ready to adopt when her son told friends, '”I'm gonna have a baby soon. I don't know it's name yet, but it's coming.”
The devoted parent told the magazine the process felt very much like witness protection. She also feared that the adoption would be jeopardised by the fact that she's a famous star.

When Laila joined the family, Sandra took care to make sure she felt safe and secure following her disrupted early years as she mentioned that her daughter sometimes hides away in the closet. The adoption news comes after it was claimed that her new beau, model and photographer Bryan Randall has “moved into” her Beverly Hills

    On May 20, 2000, my little sister Karlee was born prematurely, she came home from the hospital three days later on my fifth birthday. After a few months, Karlee had lost 3 pounds of her already tiny body despite her pediatrician claiming there was nothing medically wrong with her. My father took her to Sanford’s Children’s Hospital for a second opinion, Karlee was born with an hour glass shaped stomach that was upside down, and had no epiglottis to prevent her formula from entering her lungs; a birth defect consistent with drug abuse during pregnancy.

I am now Mom to a sixteen year old whom I am proud to say has the good sense of self and confidence to fight against peer preasure when ever she is placed in a situation which involves activities which do not meet her high moral standerds but I am also still all to familure to how quickly life moves around us and before they know it teenagers can find themselves scared alone and desperate for assistance which they may not be prepared to handle. Looking back on my experience with sex education and my subsequent sexual experiences I can see where the gapos in the information I received led to my early entry into motherhood. It is difficult enough for teenagers finding their own path in life as parents and authority figures it is neccesary that we arm them with enough accurate information to make responsible choices that will impact their future success so directly and the support they can trust no matter what choices they…

    Autobiography “Un dia nos vamos a mudar a los estados unidos” (one day we will move to the united states) …my mom telling me this as she kneeled in front of me is one of the earliest memories I have.

My mom traveled to the United States with me and my brother in 2001, leaving behind an abusive household and with nothing more than two suitcases.

Ashley and her younger brother, Luke, were removed from their birth mother, Lorraine, when Ashley was only 3 years old. She was placed in 14 different homes before she had a permanent address.
