The actress started the adoption process when she married TV star Jesse James.
However, when they split and divorced in 2010, Sandra chose to continue the adoption process of Louis as a single parent.
She went on to receive Laila in 2015.

Talking to Everyone about her children, she revealed that both – both adopted from Louisiana – came to her ‘at the right time’.
“My family is mixed and diverse, nutritious, and loving and understanding,” she says. “It’s a family.”
There was a time in her life when she thought her chance to be a mother was over.
“And then (Storm) Katrina happened,” Sandra said Today.
“Katrina happened in New Orleans, and I know. Like, just something told me my baby was there. It was weird. It was very, very strange.”
However, it does not happen immediately.
“Three or four years later,” Bullock said of when she became a mother. “But then I looked at (Louis), and I just said, ‘Oh, there you are.’ It’s like he’s always been there.”
