No HERO tag?

What?, Not like she can't afford another child that she doesn't raise. I am sure that they do not go with out.

/other than that parental love and guidance thing

Is the limit 1 per continent? Maybe she could adopt from Antarctica.

You greedy biatch. Save some for the rest of us.

Well, good, now that kid can spend a lifetime in a hell hole. Like her or not, living in her house has to be better than anything that orphanage can offer.
 
2009-04-03 09:22:20 AM
But she has to collect them all.

I don't get what the big deal is. You want the kid to rot in an orphanage, do it. Why does everyone give her crap for attempting to give a homeless child a comfortable life?

Well, she's doing in an attention whoring kind of way. Whatever country she currently calls home has kids in bad situations, too.

That. If she gave a rat's ass about the child's life, she wouldn't have her army of publicists telling us to pay attention.

She has so little interest in the child she's wanting to adopt that she had her "people" go down there and pick one out for her. Most women won't let you pick out a purse for them, let alone a child.

I see the convo happened like this....

Yes, let's punish the child with a horrible life, and likely early death after slowing being strangled by merciless grinding poverty. There are abstract points about vanity to be driven home. At any cost!

2009-04-03 09:33:39 AM
Fark yeah. Now the kid will probably live in hopeless squalor for the rest of his life instead of living with someone who is more than financially capable of providing for his needs. I know if that's what I would want if I were that kid. YEAH! FARK YOU MADONNA! Someone high five me already!

-----------

A bit of ignorance in this thread. American children needing to be adopted are usually/b> better off than third world children needing adoption. Not even close really.

Did....any of you guys read the article? The judge wants the kid with relatives, which the child has.
 
2009-04-03 09:35:18 AM
African babies are sooo 2006. She should head over to India and beat Angelina to adopt an Indian baby. Or Nepal. Chinese babies are like Pokemon and I am sure she has already looked at the catalogue.

This kid is innocent, pure, like a virgin. It's pretty sad that her folks crossed that borderline of death. I offer my condolences to them, something like a prayer. Madonna, in turn, should be able to adopt this child. I think she really does care, and that she's just not doing so because it's vogue (like that material girl, angelina). I think once Madonna musters her team of lawyers, she'll be at close range for securing this deal.

FTFA: Madonna's efforts to adopt 3-year-old Chifundo "Mercy" James had drawn criticism from some activists who said the little girl would be best off with relatives.


Of COURSE the kid would be best off with relatives. so why the F is the kid in an orphanage?

people are dumb.

This. If i were that kid, and found out later that someone screwed up my chance to go live like royalty, i'd be piiiisssed.
 
2009-04-03 09:38:24 AM
Owned. This is honestly a double-edged sword. I hate Madonna and enjoys schadenfreude over her getting owned like this. However, this poor girl she was trying to adopt just got owned as well, so I feel really bad for that too.

Bees are livestock: Why cant she adopt a few american children?

A damned good point. Although adopting in the US is more trouble than it should be, she has the means to do so. It seems that she might just not feel that she wants to take the time. She wants an ommpa loompa NOW!

This. She did this with the last one too. He had a dad still living who wanted him. He put his child in the orphanage at the time because his wife had just died and he had no money, but he had found a job and wanted his kid back. If Madonna actually was trying to help the kids, she would look at ones who families are truly gone.

I wonder if that's truly the only alternative? Plus, if Madonna wants a kid that badly, why can't she live there for the 18 months? She's richer than god, it's not as if she can't take 18 months vacation? Maybe she would have some feeling then for the culture the kid comes from?

Not ONLY does this kid have relatives, it's not a given that every kid in an orphanage is going to have a miserable life, and some of the automatic "US rich parents = good, your own country with poorer circumstances = bad" things that come up in these threads bug me.

Personally I wouldn't want to be a star's kid. If the only alternative is truly grinding poverty, that's one thing, but milder poverty and being able to stay in my own country where my family is, or be adopted by normal family (local OR foreign) might be better.

Who left the child in an orphanage. In a shiathole. What a lucky kid to have such a loving family.

Okay so She's doing it for attention {CITATION NEEDED}, still the kid would be raised in luxury by nannies. A lot better than an orphanage in a country you've never heard of, where the best the kid could hope for is to be a farmer.

You people realize what this is, right?

Madonna was basically the self proclaimed icon for independent strong women through the 80's (in reality she was just a gifted singer who had a reputation for being a whore) and every guy wanted her.

A few years ago Angelina Jolie took that role, except instead of singing she acts, which is something Madonna can't do well.

Since Angelina is in good ass kicking shape Madonna would be foolish to challenge her to a physical confrontation for the title of "Icon of Strong Woman". So they agreed to do the next best thing: raise armies.

They now travel the world looking for the greatest potential warriors money can buy. And the children learn nothing but the art of combat until adulthood.

Soon, with their forces numbering in the thousands, they will meet a yet to be determined location, and we will once and for all know who is the world's biggest attention whore.

I've heard this argument before. While I will not defend Madonna for anything. but WHY IS THIS KID IN AN ORPHANAGE IF HE HAS CARING RELATIVES?

Being rich doesn't automatically make you happy or successful.

Been contemplating getting me a brown baby also. Who do I contact to ensure it's plastered all over the front of all media outlets? That's really been the only thing holding me back, someone already picked it out for me, I just wanna make sure everyone knows how awesome I am.

Perhaps they can't afford to raise him? Does he see his relatives ever?

Not all orphanages in the world are US-style "it's permanent forever and you hope to get adopted out" style.

Well, I can say from experience, being poor in my younger years, doing well now. Having money sure does help. When you don't have to worry about paying bills, keeping a roof over your head, being eaten by lions, or traded into slavery; greatly increases your odds of happiness.

She is a female Michael Jackson freak show and I wonder if the kids will be creepy too.

FARK had a thread about the subject of celebtards adopting 3rd World Children. (new window)

It's like because their looks are fading fast and no man wants to pay to look at them, they are resorting to travel the world and collect orphaned children like clothing accessory.

Just you wait 'ti the children start to tell the stories about living with the neurotic hags.

One thing to realize is that these aren't really orphanages, more like extended stay day care. This girl has a family who cares for her, and do want her in their lives.
 
2009-04-03 09:50:58 AM
Adoption is not about "saving a child." It's about building your family. Adoption is not a selfless act. It's a selfish act. You should selfishly want to love and raise a child. Adoption is not easy. Nor is raising a child (adoptive or biological).

I don't pretend to know what Madonna's intentions are. I do know what most adoptive parents are trying to achieve: love.
