The Madoption Process Continues

August 28th, 2007 // 5 Comments


Madonna seemed to keep running into snag after snag during the process of adopting her baby boy from Malawi, David Banda. However, it looks like she’s moving forward at this time, when a social worker was finally granted the go-ahead to stay with Madge and her brood in order to assess if David’s living environment with the family is a suitable one. People reports:

“There has been a change of mind by my government minister,” Penstone Kilembe, the director of Malawi’s Child Welfare Services, said. “I am expected to spend two weeks.”

The official word on the initial stumbling block during this assessment process is that it was simply a “misunderstanding” and that everyone has now worked it all out. Man, adoption sounds complicated. Knowing now how difficult of a process it is now, I think I’ll just go ahead and get fat with some kids of my own when the time comes.

    That kid will have more in one day with Madge than he would in a lifetime in his country.
    It’s all about money. They know Madge has it so they will make this very hard/expensive for her.

    I don’t understand why she doesn’t adopt some baby from here in the USA. We have plenty like that who need homes.

    Davie looks so cool in that little jockey outfit Madonna makes him wear when he has to stand out on the lawn during the day. Also, his high alto singing voice really helps with Madonna’s most recent remake

    Madonna: Aweema wep Aweema wep Aweema wep Aweema wep Aweema wep Aweema wep Aweema wep Aweema wep

    Davie: In the jungle the mighty jungle the lion sleeps toniiiiiite, IN the jungle the mighty jungle the lion sleeps toniiiiite! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Umbumboowayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    It’s a pleasant little song.

    Is it me or does that kid not seem to be getting any bigger? Either that or he really is the reincarnation of Gary Coleman!

    Hey RideLo – you try to hard. Wak!

    How about you ride lo over to another blog.

  5. Since when are Malawian babies so popular among first world parents that they can justify this bureaucratic priggishness?

    They can go ahead and take him back to that shithole if we aren’t good enough.
