It's Official!

| Filed under: MadonnaBaby Blabber

After a process that has spanned over two years…

A Malawai court on Wednesday finally approved Madonna's adoption of little David.

She's his mommy - for good!

A lawyer for her Madgesty has released a statement, saying, "We are very happy with what the judge has ruled. It is a positive and beautiful judgment that will have an impact on Malawi's adoption laws."

The adoption has been very controversial, with critics accusing the government of skirting laws that ban non-residents from adopting children in Malawi, which has been badly hit by an AIDS epidemic that has left more than 1 million orphans.

Many people and groups opposed the adoption, but in the end, even David's biological father wanted Madonna to be able to legally care for the child.

Congrats to mother and son!

    Since obama ruined my show after twenty years, I will ruin him.
    He lied to you people about everything. Even his uncle that he
    said help free jews..all bullshit. He even told the veterans yesterday that his uncle came home from jew prison camps and went upstairs in his attic and didn't come out
    for 6 months. Boy, he can really tell stories, can't he? Wonder what else he will tell us?

    Congrats to David and his new family but how outrageous to put them through a two year ordeal. These children need homes and the process should be a year, tops. In this country it takes a year and we held our breathe until we were in front of the judge and he said, you are officially a family. And in our case the birth mom severed all ties two days after his birth. Let's put these kids in good safe homes, home studies take a few hours, not a few months or years….

    It's official, she can finally keep her token. The weight of her white guilt has been lifted just a little today. Now lets see her lift a little more and actually put some of her $600 million fortune to work in her home state. There are hundreds of thousands of minorities who could use some help.

    Re: Logica – white guilt? token? wow…. that's funked up. You know, Madonna's mother was French Canadian, her father Italian — I seriously doubt she's got slave-owning plantation masters in her family tree.. The US is one of, if not THE richest country in the world.. how about it's govenrment & people take care of themselves ~ and allow ppl with means & money to help those in 3rd world nations ’cause those are the ones that REALLY need the help.

    Stop kissing her ass. She bought the kid and citizenship. She's not a big humanitarian. She's introducing that nation to her cult (Kabbalah) now is why there's schools ect there now.

    Where does it says the boy's own father wanted to give him on adoption ?
    ONLY IN YOUR MIND !!!

    This kid HAS a father who wanted him back ! go and adopt an orhpan if you will…
    That why this process took so long, because his own family wanted to have this child. When does the poor people who loves and cares for his children have to be stolen like this ? Do we have to miss appropiate all poor's sons, just because they are no rich dads ?
    shame on you.

    It is this adoption that will put the final nail in the coffin of the Madonna/Guy Richie marriage.

    While Guy might have been sympathetic to the needs of the Malawi people, I don't think he was on board with this adoption. Madonna is a self-important bitch. I feel sorry for that child. They must stop all these white people stealing black children from Africa. Saving one child does not solve the problem of 400 years of exploitations and underdevelopment of an entire continent.

    Why didn´t she adopt an orphan instead of a kid who still had a parent left?

  51. MADONN says – reply to this


    51

    Now she has an illegitimate hispanic daughter
    A white son with a husband that will soon leave her.
    A black kid now who has a father that is alive and well.
    Since Madonna is so completely transparent you just know the Asian one is right around the corner.
    She thinks she is so shocking and controversial but she is just insane with a tampon string on her wrist.

    What is with the Celeb trend of adopting (collecting) children I hope its well intentioned and not a publicity stunt.

  57. Madge says – reply to this


    57

    This whore did it for the publicity. Otherwise, she would have adopted several children from the USA. She treats her own kids like second class citizens. No TV, no cake. She killed 11 of her own, and she's going to try to be the center of our universe until the day she croaks.

The world needs more people like her and others that actually help. Anyways, Madonna just confirmed her concert in my country, PORTUGAL, I AM SO HAPPY! HAIL THE QUEEN! (sorry for my english, lol)

    Why do people act like Madonna walks on water? She still poops brown people. She's just an entertainer who had the advantage of having big bucks to buy whatever she wants. Meanwhile, she shit on her alcoholic brother. She washed her hands of him and said "He's a drunk." She also promised to pay for her dead gay pal's funeral. He died from AIDS. When they quoted her a price of 4000 dollars, she renigged. She explained "That's too much money." Her old pal Martin Bergoin.

  71. She is says – reply to this


    71

    as opposed to Angelina Jolie, Madonna is actually providing a stable home for David.
    !!!
    She doesn't drag him from one hotel room to another, didn't force too many drastic changes (such as adding another child every 4 month to the family) and making sure he is well adjusted, as well as the rest of the children are adjusted and welcoming.

    Ahhhhhh……Finally. And once they change the adoption laws in Malawi, We can all thank Madonna for allowing herself to be a punching bag for change ONCE AGAIN!
    And for the idiot who said that the father wanted him back (#41 - Tell m)………….please provide a link to the story that states he & his family wanted him back……..Oh thats right you can't because he has been behind this adoption from DAY 1…….. Loser. Take you & your LAMB Holier than Thou attitude elsewhere. Shouldn't you be on the phone to radio stations across the country requesting Mariah FLOP single Bye Bye? I guess Benny & Def Jam wanted to see how well her music does WITHOUT Payola and didn't sign the checks.

    CONGRATULATIONS Madonna!

    Anyone who hates on her for this adoption: My husband and I are adopting and it is one of the hardest things we've ever done. The process is not easy and therefore no one goes into adoption just for funzies or to be selfish.

    It is much easier for incompetent people (worldwide…I'm not talking about Malawi specifically) to continuously breed than it is for others to adopt. What's wrong with this picture?!

    If people would use protection than we wouldn't have millions of children living in foster care and orphanages, and everyone who needs to be adopted, can be.

    So what if it is Madonna? She has opened her heart and home to a child in need. You haters are disgusting and cynical. I hope none of you have to struggle for years to have children all the while watching drug addicted prostitutes , teenagers, or anyone incapable of taking care of a child (FOR LIFE), pop them out left and right.

    David is a lucky boy to have found such safety and love. Well done Ritchies.

    Great! Now she can go on tour and let someone else raise the child that she had to have. But a working mother has to do, what she has to do, to make ends meet.

    The kid has a father that is alive and kicking. Enough with your stupid sympathy.
    She did this so she can parade the kid around like a dog at a coffee shop and get ooohs and aaahs from people. You doing the same thing?

    Ok, while I'm all for adoption, here's a question:
    If these rich celebrities want to make changes in children's lives, instead of adopting ONE child, and running off to purchase $70 million dollar homes, (Brangelina, I'm looking YOUR way)… why don't they make $70 million dollar DONATIONS to these children's COUNTRIES, and save - geez, not ONE, but THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN??!!
    Quit supporting these hypocrits, people! They are throwing us a line of bullshit with their so-called 'humanitarianism.'

    I like her music but her personality is just so transparent, it's stupid almost, this was just a publicity stunt, she saw how well all this worked for Angelina and now she wanted some of that shine for herself, Madonna Madonna always copying others, poor kid, yeah he has money now and will grow up with excellent education, but what about love???? Im sure he's growing up with nannies and strangers when he could be growing up with his REAL family who despite the money troubles, would love him and give him everything they can, Madonna is pathetic.

    91

    Congrats to her and Guy!

    All of those people who want to turn a good thing (providing a home for a kid in need) into something negative while using the line: The boy has a father. It is a FACT that the father left this kid in an orphanage and did not visit that kid ONCE since he left him there. The kid was in an orphanage. The offer was made by Madonna to financially aid the fathers family, so he could take care of David, but he declined and appeared in court to testify he wanted the kid to be adopted. So in theory, sure the kid had a dad, but not in a practical sense and that is what should matter.

    Oh, and those that keep referring to her having to adopt an American kid. A country that has the money to drop bombs and fight wars costing billions of dollars??? That country should be able to take care of their own, but they choose not to. The money is there and plenty of it, if only the people would stand up and show they do not accept this situation from their government. Greatest country in the world. Who is kidding who? And to compare the need of a kid in Malawi to the need of a kid in the USA is ridiculous in itself. Do not get me wrong, I think it is a big shame that the US chooses not to spend their money wisely. But hé, it's the people who vote for their government or who choose not to stand up …

    This is the same skanky whore who brain washed millions of little girls into being just like her in the 80's and 90's. Continuing to push her filth and soft porn and calling it art (yea right, her an artist is like calling Rosie O'Donnel thin).Then when the country started losing its morals and becoming what she was selling (no I am not blaming only her for the downward spiral of America, but her, MTV, and Hollywood had alot to do with it) she became all holier than thou and said America was not a good place to raise "HER" children and even now brags how she does not allow her kids to what television due to the trash that is on there.

    This $4 ho is one big a$$ HYPOCRITE.

    Re: Logica
    Logica, I am not saying that the US hasn't lost it's morals, because I definitely do agree with you on that one. I just don't get that even though you may not like the woman, may not like what she stands for, or has done in the past, you may even despise her, whatever … regardless of all that, that kid is still in a much better place right now. How somebody can not appreciate that is beyond me. I do not agree with how you see Madonna, but that's fine with me, to each their own. And so what if she now seems to look at things differently than she used to? Seems only natural to me that people change, have different opinions and all. Part of growing up, maturing and all that. I definitely see things differently now than say 15 years ago. To state that is hyprocritical seems a bit harsh to me. So I can't change over time? You haven't?
