Madonna’s Adoption Causes Uproar

Madonna Adopt

Madonna, who recently adopted a Malawian child David Banda, has ignited the protest of a child protection group otherwise known as, The Eye of the Child. According to the Sun, Boniface Mandere said,

“I don’t think that the High Court has any information about how Madonna is when it comes to child-rearing.

“We are concerned that the High Court has taken a short cut and waived the law. We are registering our concern and will seek clarification from the court, after which we will decide what action to take.”

The real question is, do they want to help David or do they just want media attention for themselves? As a note, when a multi-millionaire comes to your impoverished country to improve the life of a child, you try and get them to supersize take two. Aids and Starvation or a Maid and a Education… You Decide!

Discussion: Do you think The Eye of the Child is trying to attract media attention for themselves or do they care about the baby?

I think they do care about the child. Money isn’t everything. Young children from impoverished nations are like the new Birkin bag or Chihuahua. This is a human being and not just the next fashion statement. I think that if Madonna wants to adopt a child from there she should follow their rules.

They should follow the country’s rules, but the bottom line is the celebrities are helping. Although it is said that adopting a baby is like the new fashion statement, not many celebrities have actually done it. They usually just say they want to adopt for attention, but I think the ones that truly care are the ones adopting.
