Madonna considering second adoptionApril 26th, 2008 - 2:27 pm ICT by admin
London, April 26 (IANS) Pop superstar Madonna reportedly wants to adopt a second child and is considering Cambodia and Palestine as likely regions from where she could get a kid. Though she had a bad experience with her adoption of Malawian child David Banda, she has not been deterred. She now wants to add to her family with husband Guy Ritchie. The process in Malawi is still not over even though she has had David for 18 months, contactmusic.com reports.
She said: “I’ve been visited every six weeks by social workers who come into the house and make sure that you’re being a good parent and that David’s health is thriving. And they ask you all kinds of invasive questions and you have to put up with it and endure it.
“I’ve been fingerprinted about 20 times and undergone psychological evaluations and I think everybody who goes through adoptions has to do this. I’m not alone. But you know, I would do it again.”
Madonna has slammed claims that celebrities adopting kids is just a “fad”.
She said: “I don’t see how anyone who understands how complicated it is to adopt a child could say that someone chose to do that as a fad. It’s just too difficult. It’s too traumatic.”
