Madonna's Adoption Still Not Approved

Madonna may be on the top of the charts with her latest single “4 minutes to save the world,” but she is struggling to save her child. It’s been a year and a half and Malawi’s government still hasn’t fully approved Madonna’s adoption proceedings.

Two-year-old David Bana has been living with Madge and her hubby in their London home since 2006, but they still need to deal with legal proceedings with the High Court.

The government is stepping in for Madonna, recommending the court to acknowledge the adoption. Critics have been accusing the government of skirting laws that ban non-residents from adopting children in the southern African country.

Madonna is set to make a trip to Malawi in April for a court hearing. The hearing was supposed to take place next week, but her lawyers requested an extension due to engagements she had here in the states.

The High Courts should look at the big picture, David has been under great care and Malawi has an AIDS epidemic that leaves more than 1 million children orphaned a year. Let’s be honest, more people have learned about Malawi through Madonna than high school geography. It’s time to accept it and move on!
