While it’s more convenient to write-off these adoptions as two lonely celebrities attempting to fill a void in their respective lives when buying a cute pet or finding true love & getting pregnant weren’t viable options, but both ladies deserve far more love & respect.
Sandra Bullock’s adoption news broke soon after she won the Oscar for “The Blind Side” in which her character took in a troubled foster child in her hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. Everyone knows about the tsunami of drama that hit Sandra around that time, but to adopt a baby from New Orleans is a very kind gesture. She spends more time with Louise than celebrities who’ve popped out their own kids.
As for Charlize, news of her adopted son dropped back in March, roughly two years after she separated from longtime partner, Irish actor Stuart Townsend, whom she dated for nine years. I guess she was through with men & just wanted to raise her own kid. Following a troubled past in post-Apartheid South Africa, which included her father getting shot dead by her mom after he threatened them while drunk, Charlize’s decision to adopt an African-American baby obviously came after much thought. Just like Sandra, she too has an amazing character & will undoubtedly make a great mother.
I know this will sound cheesy, but it would be awesome if either of these two kids grows up to do something that truly changes the world seeing how they’re being raised by two extremely strong women.
