Madonna should persuade court, not public, says adoption officialMarch 21st, 2009 - 2:33 pm ICT by ANI
London, March 21 (ANI): Madonna should focus on persuading Malawian courts and not the public, if she wishes to adopt another child from the African country, a government official has said.
The Queen of Pop had recently confirmed that she was planning to adopt a second child from the region after making little David Banda a part of her family in 2006.
“It’’s something I have been considering, but would only do if I had the support of the Malawian people and the Government, the Daily star quoted her as previously telling the country’’s Nation newspaper.
“Many people - especially our Malawian friends - say that David should have a Malawian brother or sister.
It is a big priority for me to educate my son about the world, but always to stay connected to his Malawian culture,” she added.
However, Cyrus Jeke, a spokesman for the Ministry of Child and Women Development, revealed that the singer would have to do more than that.
He said: “It’’s not pre-conceived. A high court judge must be convinced about the adoption. (ANI)
