Madonna's Mama Drama Continues

Madonna's Mama Drama Continues

In the ongoing Madonna adoption story of the month evidently the judge on her case is now set to make another ruling on David's fate next week. We thought things had finally gotten quiet with this story but it looks like it's far from over. Here's more:

Malawi's High Court said Monday it will rule next week on whether a coalition of human rights and child advocacy groups should help decide whether Madonna is fit to adopt a 13-month-old boy.

Justice Andrew Nyirenda said he will rule Nov. 20 on whether to admit the 67-member coalition, which includes the state-run Malawi Human Rights Commission, as a party in the adoption proceedings. The coalition maintains the proceedings have been irregular.

Madonna says she has met all the country's requirements for adopting the toddler, and David's father, Yohane Banda, has said the human rights group's lawsuit threatens his son's future.

Fit to adopt David? We know she's fit in a lot of other ways. Check out FitSugar to learn how to get Madonna's arms of steel.

ohshqipe ohshqipe 10 years were saying? Padraigin: I was being sarcastic. Now forget the textbook, we all know how "British" are things in 3rd world country.

Malawi is a multi-party democracy who's constitution has been in effect since 1995. They've had a British model judicial system for several years now, ohshqipe.

This really p isses me of. It was pretty clear after hearing David's dad had moved on a remarried that David would havebeen an orphan for life, well, his life would probably be very short. Leave Madonna alone, she is doing something good, and she is being made into the wicked witch.

etheopian_princess, i completely agree with you... this is such a rediculous situation.

from what i've read, the father already has three other children that he's having a really difficult time supporting

:( That poor little boy! You know, Madonna and Guy Ritchie would not have done this one a whim! The Human Rights group is probably trying to gain publicity through this case cuz there have been weird claims made already and the press is ready to jump on any BS story they hear! If the father is happy with it, what's the problem?

How people can be so annoying? Dammit! Well, this is getting ridiculous and I'd love to see her happy again. She looks devasted. I don't know. ________________________________________ ♥ Love me or hate me, don't be impartial ♥

gee. i'm glad these human rights group are calling attention where it's needed. forget the hundreds of thousands in darfur. let's go "help" a man who wants to give his kid up for adoption by targeting adoptee.

Regardless of all the adoption brouhaha (and I have issues with her adoption that are all my own), I don't think it can be said that Madonna is not fit to adopt. In spite of my not liking Madonna in the least, I think she's a really good mother.

I feel sorry for the kid. Just because the dad was brow beaten to concede doesn't always mean it's right. In some countries families sell off their kids into slave labor to pay family debts and give the other kids a chance. Kids as young as five chained to a table making rugs by hand in places like Pakistan, and the family gets about $20. Yea, I know Madonna isn't going to chain David to a table, but not everyone dreams of a $30,000 jungle theme nursery and designer clothes for their kid. To many people in Africa, her confrontations with religion and all that posing nekkid makes her a questionable parent.

oh nevermind ososweet I interpreted your post wrong. You are right, it's much more difficult to adopt in other countries, which is insane.

ososweet, lizatoad didn't say anything about the US, she said "that" country. I think it's crazy they are giving her a hard time too. I wonder if they are just trying to get more money from her.

LizaToad, the thing is... Madonna isn't adopting from the US.

I truly feel sorry for Madonna. Instead of praising her for adopting a baby, she's getting ridiculed. I mean, the baby allowed Madonna to adopt the baby. Leave it to that! Geez! It's so annoying. It's like she kidnapped a serial killer or something.

i think this is the most rediculous thing! that county has millions of orphans! the government should be happy that people are interested in adopting them! is she FIT to be his parent? is that a joke? she'll be able to provide him with a life that most people can only dream of! the government should show that it encourages adoption instead of making it so difficult that no one will want to do it!
