Madonna’s wish to adopt a childApril 13th, 2009 - 6:15 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
After coming into criticism in 2006 when she adopted 13-month-old David Banda in Malawi, Madonna still wants to adopt a child. The pop-star was very keen on adopting a second child from Malawi, despite a court in the country refusing to grant her permission.
Responding to he queries from the Nation on Sunday newspaper, Madonna said she was still keen on adopting Mercy and returning to the country.
“I want to provide Mercy with a home, a loving family environment and the best education and healthcare possible. And it’s my hope that she like David, will one day return to Malawi and help the people of their country,” she told the Nation on Sunday.
“Though I have been advised that I cannot publicly discuss the pending appeal regarding my desire to adopt Mercy, I do want to say how much I appreciate the level of support that I have received from the people of Malawi and my friends around the world.”
The singer’s legal team have lodged an appeal against the court’s appeal not to allow the adoption to take place. -Sampurn Media
