Leonardo DiCaprio “adopts” an African baby

Page Six reports Leonardo DiCaprio has adopted a South African child he met at an orphanage while filming Blood Diamond. Although instead of actually raising the child he’s decided to send her a monthly support check and parent her by phone. I’m not entirely sure what that means, but they keep using the word “adopt” so I’m assuming he’s actually adopted her. But the description doesn’t sound like it qualifies as an adoption. Otherwise I could go around saying I’ve adopted the guy who works at the local 7-Eleven. Or pretty much any other person I throw my tremendous wealth at. And when I say tremendous I mean tremendous. I don’t want to brag, but I drive a Toyota, ladies. Camry.
