Sia added that her youngest son is still "processing" his own trauma, but she remains hopeful that "he can manage."

"It took me until I was 41, I think, to deal with my early developmental trauma," she said. "I don't want that for them, but you can't force anyone.

"Trauma has to come out when you're in a safe environment, when you're ready — psychologically ready. So, I'm just trying to do my best for them."

The "Chandelier" hitmaker later got emotional while talking about her sons, revealing that they played a massive part in teaching her an important lesson about race and privilege.

"I'm embarrassed that it took me to adopt two Black sons to really understand what they go through on a daily basis," she tearfully confessed. "There are things to do. We can actually act, and we can actually try and get justice for Breonna Taylor and Elijah McClain."

"I've very scared for my children. I love them very much," she continued. "I've only experienced white privilege and I know that now. I am fully aware of how much I've experienced white privilege, and now I have these two Black sons who tell me how it really is."

Looking back at her transition to motherhood in the past year, Sia said she's "grateful" to have a successful career that can provide support and care for her kids.

"I have reached my professional and my personal goals, and I'm at a very interesting place," she said. "I think being … able to be a compassionate and nonjudgemental mother to my two sons, and to have the resources to really help them, I've now reached my personal goals."

Sia Is in Mom 'Heaven' with the Two Teen Sons She Adopted Last Year: 'They Saved Me'

Sia couldn't be happier or more fulfilled as a new mom of two.

One month after revealing she had adopted two boys who were "aging out of the foster care system," the singer appeared Friday on Good Morning America, where she gave an update on their lives as of late.

"They both suffered a lot, and I've been able to get them the help — I have the resources to get them the help that they needed for their early trauma," said Sia, 44. "It's taken a year and we've had our ups and downs, but we've never been in a better place than today, in fact."

"It's a blessing for me," added the "Chandelier" hitmaker. "I think they saved me, so I'm in heaven."

Before talking about her upcoming film Music — featuring Maddie Ziegler, Kate Hudson and Leslie Odom Jr., among other stars — Sia turned the attention to the deaths of Breonna Taylor and Elijah McClain and her desire to help "do something about this police brutality."

"You don't just have to feel bad — you can actually email the attorney general … if you care about Breonna Taylor's murder at all," she said, giving contact information for Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron for Taylor's case and Colorado Gov. Jared Polis for McClain's.

"It just feels more important to me than entertainment right now," Sia added.

As for the movie, "it's great," she said excitedly. "I'm gonna break your heart and put it back together again!"
