Well displacing the child after an adoption and the time she has bonded with her new mom and brother isn't justice for the child. So lets hope that the family you are talking about gets matched again and has a happy outcome and for a happy life for the little girl with her mom and brother. Its shameful and selfish to try to rip a child out of a loving home.

From YOUR first link, second paragraph.

Speaking to People magazine, the "Gravity" star said <b>she began fostering Laila about three years ago. </b>The baby girl had been placed in foster care in Louisiana.

So what if they had been stationed in LA? This child had been fostering with Ms. bullock for three of her three and a half years of life. Why should she be taken from the only parent she has known to be given to another family. How is that remotely in the child's best interest?

Adoption by Military Families - National CASA - CASA for Children

Many foster care agencies still consider military families unstable due to their frequent moves.
That's because military families ARE unstable due to their frequent moves, along with a variety of other reasons.

There are many inconsistencies between the press releases and the materials that were released during discovery? I think at this point it's best to allow the courts to resolve the situation.

Did you come up with that conclusion all by yourself or do you have any evidence to support that statement? Because that is a pretty insulting statement to all our men and women in uniform and as the article I posted states, it's clearly wrong.

Yes, I'm a big girl and I came to that conclusion all by myself! Because, as an intelligent, thinking adult, I'm allowed to have an opinion.

I'm glad the child was from the U.S.


I never understood these celebrities going all the way to Africa to adopt black children meanwhile in their homeland(USA)black children dominate the foster care system.
