Does anyone else find this creepy. As in it is illegal in Malawi for non-citizens to adopt children, but donate some money for hospitals, an ofphanage and infrastructure, grease some palms, and you too can buy a child. It smacks of good old colonialism with a hint of slavery. Well after all she is a material girl ......Madonna and child
Judge approves Madonna's adopting child
Boniface Mandere of Eye of the Child emphasized that his organization was not against international adoption or Madonna helping a child in a country where many face lives of disease, hunger and premature death. Malawi is one of the world's poorest countries, devastated by Aids and periodic drought. But Eye of the Child is saying is: "You cannot buy a child as if you are buying a house," Mandere told The Associated Press. "This process is too short, applying on Tuesday, and yesterday the court gave the OK. I don't think that the High Court has any information about how Madonna is when it comes to child-rearing."
