Madonna's back in the News...
Okay, Madonna hasn't left the news since she adopted her newest little boy. At first, everyone heard from the little boy's biological father about how Madonna was the best for his son.
A bit of history on this little boy, when he was a week old his mother died, they had two other children that had died of malaria. His father decided to put him in the orphanage because they could take care of him better than he could. "I was alone with a baby. I had no money. I couldn't buy him milk. That's why I surrendered him to the orphanage," said Banda, the boy's biological father.
Banda, spoke out against even the human rights activists, "Where were these people when David was struggling in the orphanage? These so-called human rights groups should leave my baby alone."
He then admitted he was okay with Madonna adopting his sone, "As father I have okayed this, I have no problem. The village has no problem. Who are they to cause trouble? Please let them stop." If the father agrees with it why can't we? Let her have the little boy, the father wants him to have a better home.
"Orphanage life is no good. We leave kids there because we can't look after them properly ourselves. Now my son has been taken by a kindhearted woman, these people want to bring him back to the orphanage." Once again, he states his son would be better off living with someone that would care for him. So, why is all this strange? Only days after he said this he took back everything he said. I wonder if someone isn't paying him or as some say, maybe he wanted her to take him away as well as his kid. The world will never really know. But here is his newest statement. You be the judge.
First he claims he never realized that adoption would be for good, only temporary. He believed that after Madonna and Guy Richie educated his son and take care of him, that he would then be returned back to his father. What did he think this was a foreign exchange program? Or maybe after high school he'd want his son back, maybe his son would want to stay in a different country at that point. It wouldn't even be up to Madonna anymore, it would be up to his kid. Not sure how long their education goes but in America we like our children to complete 12th grade.
Another claim he is making is he couldn't read and that everyone made him believe it was okay. I do think he really did understand and either wants more money, money period if wasn't given it in the first place or someone has made him feel guilty.
So what do you think?
