The father is illiterate. He is is uneducated. He probably saw all the hype around this ,and went with it, and someone cued him in that Madge is one of the richest women in the world, and he wants a peice. It is not that crazy. What is crazy is that she would pick a child with strings attached. She really should of beenb a little smarter and chose a child with no strings. I wonder what it was about this boy that she chose him over all of the kids.

I just agree that maybe she should have chosen to adopt a child with no parents. I'm not sure the father is selfish. I think he's uneducated and if the government was willing to break it's own adoption rules, I don't think they would be above lying to this man about the adoption.

I would like to pop out a child, give him to someone else to shoulder the expense and burden of feeding, raising, and caring for my child, and then get him/her back at 18, all ready to be an adult and do me proud living with me in my hut. This father is now become selfish selfish selfish, and this most likely coincides with the realization that Madonna earns more than the entire country's GDP. Besides, when the child is grown, he will be able to decide to go back to Malawi (or not to). She should give the baby back and pick out another one with less baggage.

If and when the child is finished with his education, he can return to Malawi if he so desires, no? Adopting him doesn't equal owning him. He'll be an adult one day and he can go where he pleases. Ginger - I've never heard of social services taking custody of children whose parents can't afford child care. This whole situation is a mess. I don't know who or what to believe and I don't know who actually has this child's best interests as their priority.

I don't view it as extortion. She doesn't have to give the family any money, I'm just pointing out that for far less than she has already spent on this child, he could have been raised to adulthood by his own family in his own culture. But it looks like she was more interested in her vanity than what might be best for the child. Ripping him reminds me of when the relatives of Elian Gonzalez tried to keep him in Florida, rather than be raised by his own father in his own country. It's similar to when social services takes away a child from a single parent who can't afford child care but has to work to support the child. Social services spends a chunk of tax payers money to have a foster parent raise the child, and if only there was a way to give the parent that money for child care, they could afford to work and raise their own kid, which is what most parents would want.

But the father was also giving interviews to journalist who spoke his language and telling them that he understood this adoption and was excited that his son was going to have a better life.. now she will probably have to give the child back and he will live the rest of his childhood at this orphanage.. sad. And I don't think she should pay the father to raise the child or give any more money to the orphange then what was already planned or it seems like it could be a form of extortion. And soon this start happening to all wealthy couples who try to adopt.

crazy. it will be hard to watch his son grow up in the tabloids to Im sure

Also consider that Malawi laws forbid international adoption by non-residents, so there is no context for the father to have understood that he was giving away his son forever, to new parents. The reason he wasn't living with the father was financial. If Madonna had just donated the cost of her legal fees and the kids private plane ride to the family, they probably could have afforded to raise him and she could have picked a real orphan, with no living parents.
Ginger Ginger 9 years
The father doesn't speak English, so he probably doesn't know the word adoption from hamburger. Perhaps the father had hopes (like many parents) that with a good Western education his son could return to Malawi and make a difference, maybe in politics, engineering, or some other way. That's pretty common for people with means in African countries to want to return to help their country after getting a good education elsewhere. I was just reading an article that said: In the Reuters interview, Banda said what he was told by the officials was that the papers he signed said Madonna would look after David, educate him and bring him back. "What he has told you now is not true," Kilembe said, but refusing to provide the adoption papers that the father signed.

so the idea is that the dad was using the orphange as a sort of child pawn shop? bullshit. i smell extortion.

Imabeliever Imabeliever 9 years
And I am shocked that she is not wearing a sweat suit.. not loving the jacket,,, but the shoes are cute.
Imabeliever Imabeliever 9 years
the word adoption was used when he spoke to the press in interviews as well..am I completely jaded in thinking the father might have thought his son could be raised by Madonna and then share his "wealth" with him when he was older? Who in their right mind would let their son enjoy a rich, privlegded lifestyle temporarily and then make him come back to a mud shack without electricity and no hope for a future.. thats more cruel then growing up in an orphange.
