This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
First off, we think Queen Latifah would make such a great mama!
Queen Latifah has actually wanted to adopt since she was a little kid!
This isn't the first time she's talked about wanting to adopt, either!
"Honestly, I’ve always wanted to adopt since I was a child. I saw an ABC special and I’ve always wanted to adopt since I was a kid. I also love the show Eight is Enough. I’ve always loved the idea of having a house full of people where you’re the parent, and everybody can come. If something goes wrong the kids can crash there, and you just make sure you call their parents to say they are safe there.
That’s just kind of how I envisioned things. And I know I’m running a little late, but I’ve had a couple of things to do. I’m the parent to many people, whether you realize it or not. It just doesn’t look like it from the outside world. But I would absolutely adopt. That’s something that I definitely see in the future because why not? I mean, it doesn’t have to be a baby; kids need a home. So hopefully that will be a possible thing. But I can’t speak on anything particularly right now."
It's never too late! Especially if you wanna adopt!
We'll say it again, we think you'd be a great mama!
Go out and get yourself a kid! We'll wait. LOLz!
