STOP PICKING ON MADONNA
We think Madonna is more of a HERO in this adoption situation than she’s getting credit for. Maybe it wasn’t a great idea to adopt a baby with a living parent, but as the baby’s father has said “If my son stayed here I would end up burying him.” Nobody’s talking about thirteen month old David’s health, but the fact is, he’s ill, and AIDS is quite probably the reason. The disease is ravaging Malawi and may have killed David’s mother. David is just recovering from PNEUMONIA , and according to Madonna, has not been tested for HIV. Madonna has always been a huge AIDS activist , so it makes sense for her to take in an HIV baby – a far bigger challenge than most adoptive parents face. She’s giving this sick child nobody else wants, a chance at a good life, so give her some credit!
