I was shocked that the judge denied Madonna from adopting that little girl.She is very possibly saving her life by adopting her.Madonna has done so much for that country.By letting her adopt this girl it will not be hurting the child.No way!She has already saved one child by adopting him.So and the government is backing her.So,what's the problem? That judge is just being hateful!That is a very stupid law that someone should have to live in that horrible place to be able to adopt. What do you think?

i didn't watch any news last night so i hadn't heard that. the last i heard them say about it was they hadn't got the parents permission on it. did the parents approve of it?they knew she wasn't going to move there. something strange about it, isn't it? maybe theey are trying to get more money out of her.

I think that some countries take national identity a little too far...ok way too far. My husband and I discussed adopting (not that we can because we don't have the space or the money, just a general discussion) and we always said that if we were in the position to adopt someone from another country, we'd raise that child within their own culture, and we would not change the child's name. The differences we would make would be that the child would not have less or more rights because of gender, and of course the advantages that come with being raised in a wealthy safe family, as opposed to poverty.
