Adoption could help Sandra Bullock get over her divorce: Experts
New York: Sandra Bullock`s adoption of a baby son could be a ``win-win situation`` for both of them, as the timing is perfect for her to heal while divorcing Jesse James, say experts.
While the Oscar-winning actress will be a busy single mom, her adopted baby son may actually help her get over more quickly from James` transgressions than she would have on her own.
Bullock announced she was adopting 3 1/2-month-old Louis Bardo Bullock from New Orleans in a People magazine interview, and even revealed her intention to divorce James.
"[The adoption] could be the biggest and most wonderful distraction that there is. It`s a way of self-soothing, which is what we all try to do when we suffer a loss. Some forms of self-soothing are constructive and others are destructive," the New York Daily News quoted Dr Robert Epstein as saying.
And for ‘The Blind Side’ star, being able to direct love and attention toward a baby is constructive, he said.
"It`s probably a win-win situation. Sandra has a lot of love to give; a lot of time and a lot of resources," said Epstein.
