Sandra Bullock

The actress and philanthropist planned to adopt with her then-husband, but after his string of affairs was revealed she went on to adopt two children as a single mom: “I hold my son in my arms and thank God for bringing him to me. If the standard route for creating a family had worked for me, I wouldn’t have met this child. I needed to know him. I needed to be his mother.”
