Some Hollywood celebrities use their wealth to adopt children and give them another chance at life.
Sandra Bullock was one of them, and she’s proud of it. Sandra Bullock defended herself from online haters who told her that she wasn’t really the mother of her son, Louis, on August 31, 2015.
The accusations drove the mother to turn to Facebook to let everyone know that motherhood goes beyond the blood, as reported by Scary Mommy.
People love to take advantage of the internet and its anonymity to insult others, as well as judge the way they live their lives. Sandra Bullock felt that wave of hate two years ago.
The 53-year-old adopted her son, Louis, in 2010, but the adoption of the child wasn’t well received by some people online, who gave the actress a piece of their mind.
According to Faith It, she was criticized because she wasn’t Louis birth mother and that she didn’t have anything in common with him, especially her blood.
That was the main focus of the cyberbullies. Because Bullock and Louis weren’t blood-related, they couldn’t be a family in any way. The Blind Side actress didn’t like having her motherhood being questioned so she responded to the mean comments through Facebook.
The post has been deleted, but, as reported by Scary Mommy, Bullock gave people a lesson when it comes to being a mother by expressing her feelings towards Louis.
She wrote that a mother is someone who raises, loves and teaches a child, whether it is biologically hers or not. A mother is not dependent on blood to be one, as it is the heart that tells a woman that she is, indeed, a mother.
I know I’ve adopted him and I am proud of it. He may not have my eyes, he may not have my smile, he may not have my skin tone, but he has all my heart.

The Academy Award-winner explained that she was thankful for not following the standard route to the creation of a family. If she did, she wouldn’t have met Louis, and that was the most important thing for her.
Bullock urged her fans to share her words in order to show the world that adoption doesn’t make a person less of a parent and that an adopted child is not less loved because they’re not blood-related.
